Tear-Drop and Two-Steps

Jez Lowe
Some say the Devil's just an angel in the dark Some say the Devil's just a good man feeling bad Some say the Devil's just the lads out for a lark Some say the Devil plays the only music glad and good But I wish my father he'd have locked and barred the door I wish my mother told me never take a chance I wish I'd never seen those feet upon the floor And thrown away my nights and days in such a merry dance Watch me rock and reel, watch me toe and heel Watch me stepping out to any tune you play But tear-drops are two-steps away tear-drops are two-steps away I used to watch them with my back against the wall In case the music took me both feet by surprise Then the devil whispered words to me across the hall And I sold my soul to heel and toe with a devil in disguise Watch me beat and bop, watch me spinning top Watch me shuffle, buck and wing and mandalay But tear-drops are two-steps away tear-drops are two-steps away Night after night we'd trip the light across the town Family and friends went dashing white right out the door Then with my money spent the dance soon came around And my partner left me and she waltzed off with the next man on the floor Watch me jump and jive, watch me dip and dive Watch me pogo, twist and tango night and day But tear-drops are two-steps away tear-drops are two-steps away This broken heart it surely keeps me on my toes It brings me down just when I think I'm on the mend I'm sure that she'll have music wherever she goes But I hope that tear-drops will take two steps towards her in the end Watch me trip the light, watch me dashing white Whatch me shimmy, shake and samba and chassee But tear-drops are two-steps away tear-drops are two-steps away tear-drops are two-steps away tear-drops are two-steps away
