THE DANCING MAN
WRITTEN 5/16/97 FRIDAY

Oh! The dancin' man, Oh!
the dancin' man. When the
darkness falls, whenever the
lights come on. Whenever
the sun goes down until the
fights go down. That's when
the dancin' mans' dance
over the town. Left and right
he goes and leaves no stone
unturned watched during the
night shifts start and when they
go. He flies down Main and
up the streets. Where his
house he goes, turns
the lights so low and waltzes
himself to sleep.
