Verse 1
We're burnin' up the dust and lightin' up the sky.
The unnatural is tending to the give me one more cry.
Flirtin' with the natural tendencies to please.
The couch is on the roof top - the red lips are ready to tease.
Hey now march, April's spittin' on the floor. She's beggin' me to hold off just a little bit longer.
Stompin' to the beat, forgettin' to pose. She's pretending to play the piano and she's got a birthday suit on.
Let's close the store. It's time to call it the day.
I'm sick of sellin' this unnatural stuff and there's dues to pay and the phone's ringin' and there's sweat and there's sweat.
Ha. Answer that.
Holly would if she could but she can't let you in.
Holly would if she could but she can't let you in.
The resume's lookin' pretty good but now the phones aren't ringin'.
'Cause nobody's dialin' into the fact that cool and appropriate is the way to go.
You know everybody's got the new best thing. And that's where the rings are ringin'.
That's where the rings are ringin'.
Fancy cat struts down the corner barefoot blastin' washin' her paws.
Don't forget those claws. Blingin' her attitude shinin' on her fur.
Don't forget those claws when you hear her purr.
Don't forget the phrase that comes along with the perfume breeze and the Hollywood cheese.
Disaster waitin' to happen but we keep movin' on. We keep movin' on and we pitch our song - sing it.
Holly would if she could but she can't let you in.
Holly would if she could but she can't let you in.
If you fall on your face just turn around and face the sky.
Eventually a cloud will fall into place and pass by so don't sell yourself short and keep your head in the clouds 'cause it's all about perception, participation, precipitation.
These palms can wave and lure you into the spell like a Buddha that's smokin' and drinkin' Kool Aid in hell.
Eatin' burritos and margaritas while the spaceships swoop down, touchdown, go down . . . hey.
And don't wait for action 'cause it'll be too late.
There's no time to think about it just do it and do it and do it again.
'Cause you'll go there. 'Cause you've been there.
'Cause you know how to feel the virtual mother wind.
Holly would if she could but she can't let you in.
Holly would if she could but she can't let you in.
Holly would if she could but she can't let you in.
Holly would if she could but she can't let you in.
Holly would if she could but she can't let you in.
Holly would if she could but she can't let you in.
Holly would if she could but she can't let you in.
Holly would if she could but she can't let you in.
