lyrics

Slipping back to Falmouth off the cape
Haven’t had a drop but feeling great
And I heard the news that your chips were down
And you’re getting yourself straight
Can you bust a move like I bust a move?
You know I’m feeling great
’Cause when you’re in the dance
You gotta dance
And when you stop for a breath
You hope the room won’t be spinning
Immovable luck can tip your way
And if you give it a chance you know that things can just
Be beginning---like flowers, like flowers, like flowers, like flowers,
If you stick around
We can work things out
Get some chicken and talk things over
We’ll get some tickets to the roller derby
Calling out her name as she smashes in the wall
It doesn’t matter
Slipping back to Falmouth off the cape
When I got your call I filled the tank
And I packed the trunk with your weathered ball
And your record crates
With your Killer Queen and your Aerosmith
You always had good taste
You always said that snakes
Shed their skin but they’re still snakes underneath
Will you answer when I’m buzzing
Immovable luck can tip your way
You can’t stop me, can’t stop me from coming
With flowers, with flowers, like flowers, like flowers
