Mariella (I'm Your Fella) by OliverFordmusic published on 2012/07/25 20:39:11 +0000 Bumming ‘round the summer everybody’s growing dumber so be careful not to slip on the drool Says the fighter to the writer as his fist is closing tighter on the neck of what is left of the fool But what no one wants to mention is the alternate dimension, which opened up outside of school Where the crazy folks fall out and shake about but none of them quite like you Visionary mama shouting beach balls and Obama while the kid plays the sad violin Corner store conductor needs a number to instruct her that she’ll never ever add up again Well everybody is a circus but it’s only on the surface when the ringmaster is buried too deep What’s this world coming to? I don’t know do you? Want to make it up? Like all this other stuff? Yeah Mariella, Mariella I’m your fella on this mystic and emotional ride Mariella, I will tell ya Cinderella was your equal when you open your eyes Let’s plan on looking back, learning all the facts, forgetting them after a while Hear the storm a’coming and see everyone a’running but the dancing man’s the one they arrest Says the carrot to the snowman I don’t want to be your nose man, so bite me off or put me in your vest It’s an old tradition to go seeking recognition says the Invisible Man with a grin And though he don’t appear, at least he’s clear, it don’t take much to look like him Little orphan Annie she’s a holding hands with Danny and they whisper by the liquor store light Everybody’s talking and they’re walking while they’re talking and they’re talking ‘bout how nothing’s ever right But I say this world ain’t over when you look over your shoulder and you call me out into the night And I want to let you know, I don’t know where to go, you want to take the wheel? Just turn to how you feel yeah Mariella, Mariella I’m your fella on this mystic and emotional ride Mariella, I will tell ya Cinderella was your equal when you open your eyes Let’s plan on looking back, learning all the facts, forgetting them after a while Let’s face it, we won’t make it if the chaos leaves us blind These are dull times full of punch lines but the joke is on our lives I will drive to your place in the morning and we’ll leave this world without warning We can live free of all the irony yes someday when we find the new land again yeah Mariella won't you step right up and tell me are we the next contestants who haven't learned their lessons I'm afraid of heights, I'm afraid of overbites but I ain't afraid tonight so let's walk this world that don't spin right ℗© 2013.
