Little Feat – Sample In A Jar lyrics

Trey Anastassio, Tom Marshall

It's hidden far away
But someday i may tell
The tale of metal tangle
When into your world i fell
Without you now i wander
Soaking secretly afraid
'cause in your grasp the fears don't last
And some of them have stayed
I wheeled around because i didn't
Hear what you had said
And saw you dancing with elihu
Up on leemor's bed
And i was foggy rather groggy,
You helped me to my car
The binding belt enclosing me,
A sample in a jar
And on the market stands unfolding
With all their willies and their wares
I shuffle by alert but numb
To all the glances and the glares
And i think of you unheeding
All the times i raise my cup
It's now i know that you knew
That i'd soon end up end up
You tricked me like the others
And now i don't belong
The simple smiles and good times
Seem all wrong

Chorus out
