Van Dyke Parks – An Invitation To Sin lyrics

Stretch yourself out let me tell you what it's all about
Doubtless you wanna know
I been a queen and I seen high society
Climb the stairs so many times with milionaires just to
Help them chase their cares away
These are the does I suppose you all knows how to play
An invitation to sin and begin to be gay

Pick a winner red hot chicken dinner
Sinner or help yourself to some quail
We got a covey, a bevy of love for sale
If she suit you fancy if you need romancin
Don't let this chance pass you by
This ain't no dime a dance so let that old eagle fly
An invitation to sin and begin to be gay

I done some time back in my prime
My crime was that I didn't know when to quit
Times was unkind to me now I don't mind a bit
Face you can't forget night of love you won't regret
Feelin you ain't felt before
If you can't pay sonny just make you way out the door
An invitation to sin and begin to be gay
