Wings On My Heels

Original and similar lyrics
I never was too good at dancing Somewhere I'd step out of line But I knew that I had wings on my heels When they played in three-quarter time The pride of the north-end would swagger The blades from the south-side would shine But I swear those boys would hold on for dear life When they played in three-quarter time One by one they pulled down those mirrored halls One by one the winters came forgetting names I never learned how to sweet talk Those are the words I can't find Yet I had a tongue of pure silver When they played in three-quarter time One by one they pulled down those mirrored halls One by one the winters came forgetting names Money might slip through my fingers And there won't be much to call mine But I'll know that I had wings on my heels When they played in three-quarter time

Nautical Wheelers

JIMMY BUFFETT "A1A"
Nautical Wheelers who call themselves sailors Play fiddle tunes under the stars. Petticoats rustle, working shoes scuffle, Hustle on down to the bars. Where the jukebox is blastin' and the liquor is flowing an occasional bottle of wine. That's cause everyone here is just more than contented to be living and dying in three quarter time. [Chorus:] And It's dance with me, dance with me Nautical Wheelers. Take me to stars that you know. Come on and dance with me, Nautical Wheelers I want so badly to go. Well the left foot it'll follow where the Right foot has traveled down to the Sidewalks unglued. And into the street of my city so neat, Where nobody cares what you do. And Sonna's just grinnin' And Phil is ecstatic and Mason has jumped in the sea. While I'm hangin' on to a line from my sailboat oh, Nautical Wheelers save me. [Chorus] Well the sunrise'll bring on the sleep that's escaped us and everyone's off to their bed. There'll be huggin' and squeezin', a little pleasin' and teasin' and rubbin' of each others' head. So won't you dream on comrades; seems nothing affects you, nothing, no reason nor rhyme. That's cause everyone here is just more than contented to be living and dying in three quarter time.

Gopher Guts

AESOP ROCK "Skelethon"
Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts; Poolside; 0 for 1 and don't forget spoons twice Lukewarm folgers; mold on his moonpie Rooms in his home that dissipate into fruit flies Suicide lane wide load ride looting in the wake of an amicable marooning My duty go from moving in packs to sharing food with a cat. [To Moms:] "it's me, I accidentally sawed a woman in half." She said "I'll keep you in my prayers, " I said "I need to hide a body, " she said "ok honey, talk to you on Friday." Apparently we share a common plasma so the growing disconnection doesn't matter. according to the blood-and-water chapter. weird Who wrote the blood-and-water chapter anyway? probably some surly dad; only child, 30 cats. Looking for a way to reconnect with an averted past. Except it doesn't always work like that Today I pulled three baby snakes out of moss and dirt; where the wild strawberry vines toss and turn; I told them "you will grow to be something inventive and electric; you are healthy, you are special, you are present." then I let them go Oh You were sitting at the gate awaiting spirits and provisions I was privy to a headache over pirouetting innards In the mirror sweating pictures; who's there: simian or lizard? As it were there is a disappearing difference In ambition and material; Antiquated gentleman outlaws reduced to a ferris wheel of vitriol Move as a godless heathen; black gums, tooth gone, bootleg 'Yukon Cornelius' I'm a... that's better, here we here we go. disenchanted face printed on a zero-dollar bill Got a little plot of land where authority isn't recognized, contraband keeping the core of his Hyde Jekyll-ized Check! nevermind a misanthrope vying for affection to the wretched sound of mysticism dying It is something he must handle on his own; the wind blown way, wanna win? don't play Today I pulled three green frogs out of leaf and bark where the grape vines climb a convenient barn; I told them "you will grow to be something tenacious and exalted; you are mighty, you are gracious, you are lauded." then I let them go Oh I have been completely unable to maintain any semblance of relationship on any level I have been a bastard to the people who have actively attempted to deliver me from peril I have been acutely undeserving of the ear that listen up and lip that kissed me on the temple I have been accustomed to a stubborn disposition that admits it wish it's history disassembled I have been a hypocrite in sermonizing tolerance while skimming for a ministry to pretzel I have been unfairly resentful of those I wish that acted different when the bidding was essential I have been a terrible communicator prone to isolation over sympathy for devils I have been my own worst enemy since the very genesis of rebels Today I pulled three ghost crabs out of rock and sand, where the low tide showcased a promised land. I told them "you will grow to be something dynamic and impressive; you are patient you are gallant you are festive." Then I let them go Oh (On and on and on and on...)

Their Hearts Were Dancing

John Wiggins "John Audrey Wiggins"
(Tony Haselden) One two three step two three Whenever they're waltzing He counts out loud She's tried to teach him But the rhythm doesn't reach him So they bounce through the crowd But oh won't you look at them smiling Not worried that they're out of time He steps on her toes as she giggles and goes on 'Cause love is forgiving and kind Their hearts are dancing To the love song that's played from the moment they met Their hearts are dancing In time with a tune love won't ever forget Their gold anniversary He toasted the family And said, time flies when it's fun And here's to my sweet wife Who's made ours a great life I'm the luckiest one And though there was no music playing He reached out and she took his hand He counted to three as they waltzed he could see There's still magic in those golden hands Their hearts are dancing To the love song that's played from the moment they met Their hearts are dancing In time with a tune love won't ever forget Their hearts are dancing To the love song that's played from the moment they met Their hearts are dancing In time with a tune love won't ever forget
