The Mermaid Parade
- 25 Views
In New York this morning; it was 8 am LA time, And I could be there by this evening Said the girl on the airline line. So I bought that ticket, and I got in that cab, But I didn't make it babe To the airport like that. No I wound up walking Out by the ocean today And there were naked women Dancing in the Mermaid Parade. And oh Amanda did you see me today Watching those women dancing In the Mermaid Parade? And oh Amanda were you with me today Watching those women waltz by In the Mermaid Parade? Now our hearts were on fire Only two weeks ago, And our bodies were like live wires Down on the beach in Mexico. I came back to this city, And you stayed home in LA, And our two years of marriage In two short weeks somehow just slipped away. I know all about your new man Your new, older, old man And I heard that he's married, Oh, you be careful Amanda. Yeah, I found a new friend too, And yeah she's pretty and she's small, But God damn it, Amanda, Oh, God damn it all.
