the sky’s ablaze

They’re kicking from the clouds
Shoes fall thru the morning haze & splat like eggs amongst the crowds
Can you see them, son’ my father asked
Now they’re dancing plain as day

The Sky’s Ablaze – Was [Not Was]

My father used to take a drink or two when I was young
It was then hallucinations always dangled from his tongue
The sky’s ablaze with ladies’ legs he used to say
They’re kicking from the clouds
Shoes fall thru the morning haze & splat like eggs amongst the crowds
Can you see them, son’ my father asked
Now they’re dancing plain as day
His eyes were rolling fiercely, there was little I could say
How can you go on I’d like to ask How can you bear the night
Instead I hold my tongue, because I know we’d only fight
The sky’s ablaze with ladies legs, he’d say
They’re kicking from the clouds, shoes fall through the morning haze
And splat like eggs amongst the crowds, can you see it, boy
The sky’s ablaze with ladies legs, he’d say
They’re kicking from the clouds, shoes fall through the morning haze
And splat like eggs amongst the crowds, can you see it, boy
The sky’s ablaze with ladies legs, he’d say
They’re kicking from the clouds, shoes fall through the morning haze
And splat like eggs amongst the crowds, can you see it, boy
