Howe Gelb – Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys lyrics

if you see something that looks like star
shooting all up out of the round
and your head is still spinning from a loud guitar

and you just can't escape from the sound
don't worry too much, it will happen to you
we were children once playing with toys

the thing that you're hearing
is only the sound of the low spark
from high heeled boys
...high heeled boys

the percentage you're paying
Is too high priced
While you're living beyond
All your means
And the man in the suit
Has just bought a new car
From the profit he's made
On your dreams
But today that you swear
That the man was shot dead
By a gun that didn't make any noise
but it wasn't the bullet that laid him to rest
It was the low spark of high heeled boys

If I gave you everything that I own
And ask for nothing in return
Would you do the same for me
As I would for you
Or take me for a ride
And strip me of everything
Including my pride
But spirit is something that
No one destroys
