PERFECT SHOULDER

Quick to the wound but soft to the touch
A letter from Las Vegas would mean so much
So much delight 'neath the moon in the night
A little late letting me know
"It's time to leave or time to grow"

If looks could kill, I'd be in limbo by now
With your slicked back hair - how now brown cow?

Come let your hair down, you look so enchanting tonight
Light flickers on your shoulder are still in my sights
Put down that glass; let me fill you with laughter
Forget the frolics, it's your loving I'm after
Candles and crooning, is this your desire
Or do you powder your nose to take you higher?

If looks could kill, I'd be in limbo by now
With your slicked back hair - and your furrowed brow

Wonderful soulful, friendship-filled music
Look back with languish on the let down of nations
Pucker your lips 'round life's bald frustration
Seduce the seductress with glittering intonation
Litter the floorboards with your fancy footwork
Bite back at the barking frog

If looks could kill, I'd be in limbo by now
With your slicked back hair - what will you allow?

Don't give up at this early juncture
You gotta chase the snail whose dreams you have punctured
Skipping down to sodomy's doorstep
Who's the loser when the game is half-set?
Hold hands with humiliation - let the smile unwind
A peck on the cheek, and you leave me behind
Look me in the eyes and tell me you care
This is no time to unplait your hair

If looks could kill, I'd be in limbo by now
With your slicked back hair - how now brown cow?
