The peace officer
Meditated in his car
Eating doughnut holes

You can break my heart
You can break my soul
But don't break my umbrella

Roll out the barbells
Plug in the electric guitar
Wring out the moon
Wash all the stars

Candle burning at both ends
The living room's a mess
Ashes all in my hair now
She put me to the test

Paul McCartney and Celia Cruz
Had breakfast together yesterday
They had scrambled eggs and salsa

Orange and red don't go together
You gotta send all the furniture back

There are many mysteries I think
I will never be able to solve
Like who put the bop in the bop she bop she bop
Why oh why oh why
Can't I get a wi-fi signal
Can I get a witness?

The slap of flip-flops
The clack of high heels
They drive me crazy
Put on some slippers!

What's that in the foil
Does anybody know?
It could be asparagus quiche
With the peace officer's doughnut holes

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

That's a lot of instruments - sounds like a fun evening! Kind of like a mini concert. Love the enthusiasm for slippers! That was so funny Smile

The lyrics are like Zen koans. And what fun it sounds like you're having! It plays out like a short film soundtrack.
