lemonade


it was cinco de mayo / pillow case on his head / no more breathing time
an ambulance sped / it sped round every corner / calling out his name
shot a rabbit from the back seat window / sat and watched in the summer corn row / ate ice-cream in a desert dream / got love in father seeing you / too hot inside too hot outside
lazy days when you said just go for a ride / we'll sail on spirit lake / me, my pappy and his lemonade

tim and tina were my parents' names / they got engaged they were inflamed / seduced by the lie of butterflies
how they shimmer, how they glimmer / those butterflies
we seven kids, we almost died / nearly put to death / but lightning strike
instead there was hot pink / flashes in the sky / we climb the rocks in snowing rain / in search of magic power / to heal our mother's pain
shot a rabbit from the back seat window / sat and watched in the summer corn row / ate ice-cream in a desert dream / got love in father seeing you / Too hot inside too hot outside
lazy days when you said just go for a ride / we'll sail on Spirit Lake / me, my pappy and his lemonade
