lyrics

Fame and fortune will slip away
meetup on some morrow no matter what you say
friends and neighbors memories
passin right through ya like taters and peas

stumble into failure blow that bloody test
repair that tire have a modest success
run you right off with the overflow
pack up everything everything you know

dancing is the word that comes to mind
swing around a rhythm and sing yourself a line

2.
love and marriage beauty and the brute
kiddies in the kitchen and sugar on the fruit
pizza in the parlor take out on the roof
ferry in the harbor flawed method in the proof

every other opposite every other twin
entertain the question if they ever have to win
certain of the circle cycles satisfy the need
to have a fine acquaintance with ol' primordial seed

dancing is the word that comes to mind
swing around a rhythm and sing yourself a line

3.
several of the inmates vandalize the wall
some will make it over some will have to fall
make off with the hermit hidden in the wood
find a city limit friends and work and place and food

manuscripts and finger prints docents in the school
teachin and a preachin on about the ones who rule
standin in the courtyard memorize the text
it will come so easily you won't have to guess

dancing is the word that comes to mind
swing around a rhythm and sing yourself a line
