There was a time
everything was fine
you got drunk on the day
Like-a it was wine
and all the children they put flowers in their hair
and all the grown-ups they put daggers in their stare...
Standin' on a corner by my old high school,
I let this female call me a fool
I got on my knees and begged to the sun
And I knew that my manhood had begun
Boogie on, electric boogie, boogie on
Embrace your brother, dance in the mud
Like a Palamino stud
Come along hold my hand.
