Track Name: Singer's List
Singer’s List

Cool as the Batmobile
Singer sat at the bar
While his invisible cape hung itself
Around a chandelier
Noisy chatter filled the air
Leaving idle women everywhere
As bookies and sax players
Argued on the phone
Singer made up a set list
Of songs that he brought from home

The openers were finishing
One last one, four, five
As all the bounty hunters were
Beginning to arrive
Singer’s chances were diminishing
Of getting out of there alive
As the cats and dogs circled
Just looking for a bone
Singer picked up the list
Of songs he brought for home

Songs of wine and roses and the resulting psychosis
Songs about married women and harried men
Songs of bringing up baby just to bring him right back down again
Critics and pigs are brothers of the pen
Wallowing in the mud they’re creating
While trying so hard to be making it with the bacon

Singer’s in the arena like Daniel in the den
The animals quiet down anticipating
Singer opens in a mighty song
The animals breathe on and on
It’s so quiet you could hear an angel moan
But that’s just singer singing some songs from home

Songs of wine and roses and the resulting psychosis
Songs about married women and harried men
Songs of bringing up baby just to bring him slap back down again
Cool as the Batmobile
Singer split the bar
While his invisible cape hung itself
Around his shoulders
