A song I wrote, meant to be melancholy. This version is ‘all smashed together’. In a finished arrangement, I usually put an instrumental section between the first and second parts of the first verse, and between the second part of the second verse and the second chorus.

No ‘middle 8’, sorry!

You ate a muffin on your way back home
Had a glass of Moxie
The game is over now you’re free to roam
Why not go by proxy?

The smell of burgundy the feel of tar
Holding all so dandy
I think someday you’ll be a movie star
Have a piece of candy

Skies are fallin’ down
Hope is dryin’ up
Where’s my guardian angel?
Time keeps flyin’ by
You still find time to cry
Where’s my guardian angel?

You sold your records just to pay the rent
Christmas isn’t coming
And now you think about the time you spent
Smiling and humming
A simple pleasure is a simple thing
Keep it open-ended
Look in your future see a diamond ring
Do just what your friends did

Play Dandy
