The Girl In The Yellow Dress

Album: Rattle That Lock (2015)
  • She mesmerizes with a smile
    Dark eyes as compelling as the bourbon
    That girl in the canary yellow dress
    Says yes

    She flips a pack of cigarettes
    He doesn't smoke, but he takes one nonetheless
    It helps to keep his motives true, the girl was blue
    What else is the poor boy supposed to do

    She bounces like a flame, clothes on her
    Eyes closed
    Yellow dress
    Runs and swirls

    It's late, the hour's growing horns
    The band seems to draw her ever closer
    This girl gets right down in the groove, grooves a move
    Leads him out to where they play the blues

    She dances like a flame
    Has no cares, yellow-dressed flame
    Eyes closed, clouds above
    She shakes pearls and snakes

    Too late in this folie a troix
    He sees that the heart is pounding for
    Big daddy who falls down to his knees, begging her please
    Lifts his sax, says "here's my little tease"

    Her dancing sets the place on fire
    Heaven and hell
    The flames come up his spine
    As she shakes pearls and snakes Writer/s: DAVID JON GILMOUR, POLLY ANNE SAMSON
