[intro]
I am—no
I was a young man, I was
I was charming, and I was
full of life, and I was
caught up
when I saw, I saw, I saw
so look at my books here
oh, books, oh yeah
look at my matted hair
I stole it, I stole, man
and I stink of gin like the fool I am
look at that old man
I could still watch you walk, walk
go, go, go
I could still watch you walk, walk
go
and you look at me as if I'm a dog, dog
but look at you go
and I smile, and I will
and you think that I'm a dog, that I would
take you away in my head, I will
take you away in my head, I will
to my hole in the ground, the ground, the ground
and I will
take you away to my hole in the ground, in the ground
and I will, I will
you watch me burn
Dancing Nancies
main lyrics
Well, could I have been a parking lot attendant?
could I have been a millionaire in Bel Air?
could I have been lost somewhere in Paris?
could I have been your little brother?
could I have been anyone other than me?
could I have been, oh, anyone other than me?
could I have been anyone other than me?
could I have been anyone?

He stands, touch his hair, his shoes untied
tongue gaping, stare
could I have been a magnet for money?
could I have been anyone other than me?

Twenty-three and so tired of life
such a shame to throw it all away
the images grow darker still
could I have been anyone other than me?

And then I look up at the sky, my mouth is open wide
lick and taste, what's the use in worrying?
what's the use in hurrying?
turn, turn, we almost become dizzy

I am who I am, who I am
well, who am I?
requesting some enlightenment
could I have been anyone other than me?

And then I'll sing and dance, I'll play for you tonight
the thrill of it all
dark clouds may hang on me sometimes
but I'll work it out

And then I look up at the sky, my mouth is open wide
lick and taste, what's the use in worrying?
what's the use in hurrying?
turn, turn, we almost become dizzy

Falling out of a world of lies
could I have been a dancing nancy
a dancing nancy
could I have been anyone other than me?

And then I'll sing and dance, la la la
hey la la la, hey la la la
sing and dance, la la la
hey la la la, hey la la la
sing and dance, I'll play for you tonight
the thrill of it all
dark clouds may hang on me sometimes
but I'll work it out

And then I look up at the sky, my mouth is open wide
lick and taste, what's the use in worrying?
what's the use in hurrying?
turn, turn, we almost become dizzy
