Rhinestones
By Leo Rondeau

They were staring at my rhinestones so they never saw my face
Dancing to the melody so my words were all a waste
Hold me back so I don’t swing I’m not afraid of bar flies
I’d swim to the bottom of the barrel and look the shark right in the eyes

I took every precaution well aware of the risk
I knew of love’s pitfalls but didn’t think it would end like this
Sitting on the side of the road fumbling with this match
As soon as I light this cigarette I’m gonna throw away this patch

Leave me alone while I bait this hook
tell me where you’re going so I don’t look your way
don’t want you getting the wrong idea hon
like I want you to stay

They were all wanting to handouts and I was passing out beats
The shufflers wanted four and the waltzers wanted three
I’ve barely got it together please allow me to explain
I’m not gonna be the one to drive this boogie woogie choo choo train

Get along little doggie get along with your life
You were always quite a trophy but never much of a wife
I hate to burst your bubble its been such a good time
But when the big bang went boom our stars didn’t align

Leave me alone while I bait this hook
tell me where you’re going so I don’t look your way
don’t want you getting the wrong idea hon
like I want you to stay
