Garland Jeffreys The Contortionist Lyrics

sponsored links
I used to be a contortionist
Doing that and doing this
Swallowing rings and swords and things
Life was bent and I was twisted

Hanging in the playgrounds of the rich

Which is what and what is which

Time gone by still got the itch

Can't stop the music, Can't stop the music...

Doo doo doo doo doo doo...

I used to be a contortionist
Now I know what it really means
Contortion or distortionist
Do anything to be part of the scene
Listen to the music I adore
Begging the bartender for one more
Is this the season to explore
Is this the reason, the reason, the reason for

Everybody needs somebody to love, to love
Oh now now now
Everybody needs somebody to love, to love

Doo doo doo doo doo doo...
I used to be a contortionist
High up there in the darkest cloud
Almost like I didn't exist
Twist of lime in a drunken crowd
Innocent and running wild

Cool a fool and juvenile
Don't ever change your style

So alive with your Coney Island smile

Doo doo doo doo doo doo...
