Lyrics

Vaudeville Baby

Vaudeville Baby sings her songs
In a bar for 3 bad men who want sing along
Vaudeville Baby sings her songs
In a bar for 3 bad men who’ve been there much too long

Gotta run, gotta run
Nice to meet ya, t’was a pleasure
Gotta go, gotta cut this short
I got a train to catch
I got a river to roll
I’m sure you’ll understand someday

There’s gotta be more in this one horse town
Where the ghosts ain’t even dead
There’s gotta be more than these one trick clowns
Now remember what mama said

You better shine, better shine
While the pickin’ is prime
Better show ‘em what you got and get goin’
I’m giving you a year, have i made myself clear
My baby’s gonna shine someday

[break]

In Vaudeville, ladies are second to none
They’ll woo ya, seduce ya, and grease that piano for fun
Vaudeville ladies will give you some
They’ll tease ya, and please ya
And dry out your silver and run

There’s gotta be more in this one horse town
Where the ghosts ain’t even dead
Today’s the day I’m gonna skip this town
And forget what mama said

[break]

In Vaudeville no one lasts too long
The folks here will drive you mad
With their hypnotic, psyche-erotic, semi-phonic songs
