Color in Your Cheeks
She came in on the red eye to Dallas-Ft. Worth All the way from sunny Taipei Skin the color of a walnut shell And a baseball cap holding down her black hair And she came here after midnight The hot weather made her feel right at home Come on in, we haven't slept for weeks Drink some of this, it'll put color in your cheeks He drove in from Mexicali, no worse for wear Money to burn, time to kill But five minutes looking in his eyes and we all knew He was broken pretty bad so we gave him what we had We cleared a space for him to sleep in And we let the silence that's our trademark make its presence felt Come on in, we haven't slept for weeks Drink some of this, it'll put color in your cheeks They came in by the dozens, walking or crawling Some were bright-eyed, some were dead on their feet And they came from Zimbabwe or from Soviet Georgia East St. Louis or from Paris or they lived across the street But they came, and when they finally made it here It was the least we could do to make our welcome clear Come on in, we haven't slept for weeks Drink some of this, it'll put color in your cheeks
