Nellie Mckay – Swept Away lyrics

I'm swept away
Yes, I'm off the ground flying
Swept away
Yesterday's all but gone

Like a hurricane
You are tossing me 'round
And I'm swept away
And today you're the one

For society
Shimmy, shimmy, shimmy
And you go, oh, no
For propriety
Shimmy, shimmy, shimmy
And you go, no, no

But now I'm swept away
Yes, I'm past the sound barrier
Swept away
Yesterday's all but done

Like a Novocain shooting
Up through my arms faster
Swept away
And today you're the one

For society
Shimmy, shimmy, shimmy
And you go, oh, no
For propriety
Shimmy, shimmy, shimmy
And you go, no, no

But now I'm swept away
Yes, I'm past the sound barrier
Swept away
Yesterday's all but done

Like election day you are
Robbing me blind mister
Swept away
And today you're the one
