Slobberbone – Tilt-A-Whirl lyrics

Have you ever been drivin' home late at night
You found yourself enraptured by a captivatin' site?
The mystical allure of blinkin', twinklin', twirly lights
Shinin' in your baby's eyes, can seem so right

And that girl, she makes you stop, in that Wal-Mart parkin' lot
The smell of sweaty people on the summer's air so hot
And you buy a roll of tickets at fifty cents a pop
And you're thinkin' that it's gonna be cool
But I'm tellin' you that it's not, no

'Cause looks can be deceivin', if you know what I mean
A shiny patch of happiness may not be what it seems
I learned that lesson long ago, much to my chagrin
But not before the whole damn thing came crashin' to an end

And it looked so cool, and looked so fun, I thought
The picture-perfect perch from which to get me some the top
But the wheel, it was junk and that carny, he was drunk
And they sent my baby flyin' across the parkin' lot

Tilt-A-Whirl, it took my girl
Took my happiness away from me
And it put me in traction, it's the Devil's contraption
It's the bane of my existence, fellas, listen to me

It's no mechanical cupid, don't be stupid
No matter how she begs and whines, don't listen to that girl
If you know how to handle her, you'll ride the Scrambler
But keep away from that Tilt-A-Whirl

Now, looks can be deceivin', if you know what I mean
A shiny patch of happiness may not be what it seems
I learned that lesson long ago, much to my chagrin
But not before the whole damn thing came crashin' to an end

And it looked so cool, looked so fun, I thought
The picture-perfect perch from which to get me some the top
But that wheel, it was junk and that carny, he was drunk
And he sent my baby flyin' across the parkin' lot

Tilt-A-Whirl, you took my girl
Took my happiness away from me
And it put me in traction, it's the Devil's contraption
It's the bane of my existence, fellas, listen to me

It's no mechanical cupid, don't be stupid
No matter how she begs and whines, don't listen to that girl
If you know how to handle her, you'll ride the Scrambler
But keep away from that Tilt-A-Whirl

Tilt-A-Whirl, it took my girl
Tilt-A-Whirl, it took my girl
Tilt-A-Whirl, it took my girl
Tilt-A-Whirl, it took my girl

Tilt-A-Whirl, it took my girl
Tilt-A-Whirl, it took my girl
Tilt-A-Whirl, it took my girl
Tilt-A-Whirl, it took my girl
