Note that my timings might each be "late" by about 4 seconds, but are accurate relative to one another. A timing below that says 1:32 might actually happen at 1:29, but the all other timings will be off by the same amount. (0:10 - 0:30) ' g----d.
We met in a bar Out on Chesapeake Bay With her white patent boots And her blouse red lame A table top dancer She would smile on cue Those lips of an angel Angel in blue. She's been dancing for ages Though cities of bars She was kickin' the habit Of scoring in cars She'd been drained of her spirit All caged in this zoo A wildcat angel Angel in blue. And as she stared out into nowhere I thought, yes, I thought she might break down and cry When I whispered I thought I could love her She just said "Baby, don't even bother to try". And I watched as she spoke Her words.
