 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Greasy jungle metropolis noir easy tangles the easiest so far ah 
I drove down your road to hazeldean where I tasted your funeral
Home's sandwiches and coffee I saw your hands melt into one another 
I saw you grieve and grow care a lot about one another 

I stood at your sink and I felt your warm water I washed your dishes and 
I looked out your kitchen window where I saw a
Soulful gymnast melt in the air and shudder just above the snow 
Making moves that just weren't there ah velvet callow with wet

Hands I turned out the lights and breathing shallow hesitated then went upstairs 
Where I picked up your housecoat dried my
Hands and touched your hair and just then you awoke you could never really barely care 
Ah greasy jungle metropolis noir
