Blanche's tune

Singin it now, home from the meet

Her answers shined, I tap my feet

That lady brought me to ruin

That's why I'm singing Blanche's tune

 

Blanche's tune

Sincerity's where there's nothin too much

Golly I swear I'd love just to touch

Her original face but nothin doin

That's why I'm singing Blanche's tune

 

The lion rides in winter

I'm the mouse at its feet

A real beginner

Bugged the bodhi in me

To hop up and go off with the king of the beasts

 

Blanche's tune

I took the drive south to see her on trial

The jury dropped jaws, the judge he just smiled

She led them all out to the moon

That's why I'm signing Blanche's tune

 

Another beseeched of her how do we care

She answered directly without any hair

When you turn to emptiness everyone's there

Oh honey I sure fell for you

That's why I'm singing Blanche's tune
