From the Album:
* To the hilt

And the classic ways still on play
Violins bitter sweet
String quartet – pass around the hat
You broke my heart – don’t you hurt my head…
After Violet and me saw the Paganini movie
We took a walk around the block to digest
The grand finale
A street-music man with shades and cane
Played the fiddler insane – for a case load of
Spare change and the smiles of people passing
Between morning paper sins and waves of violins
It said they found him dead – his bow had
Made him bad friends
Cold blooded, warm hearted violin
Hooked on high speed energy
Cold blooded, warm hearted violin
Cats gut pumpin’ adrenalin
Warm blooded – cold hearted violins
See em live tonight in the city…
And the classic way – still on play
Violins better sweet
String quartet – pass around the hat
You broke my heart – don’t you hurt my head
I’ve gotta find a little peace of mind
Cause the real thing is a mean thing
I guess nobody knew – the Barcelona Zoo
Has an albino monkey – that can trigger the mood
And provoke – monkey motions
So when the shit flies high –
Through the Barcelona sky – the crowd stands by
A – cheering!
I can hear em playin’
Kinda light ‘n neat
All the gals ‘re swayin’
The guys are in for meat
It’s all cute ‘n rosy
Till the needle hits a crack
Listen to that screech repeatin’
Watch the flags go slack
Forever
