lyrics

I saw a girl last night
she was standing in the light in a corner of the room
she was waiting for a hand
then a boy came over and he asked her to dance
all eyes stopped to watch them
they moved up and down with the waves of the song
their moves keepin time for the rhythm
then the girl looked at him and she knew what it was and she smiled as she said to him,

“please twirl me one more time, and don’t stop spinning me
please swirl me in your mind, so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon
spin spin with me...”

I heard a story bout a man
he came up with a plan for flying
he showed it to his wife
then he said, “now darlin’ why are you cryin’ so?”
and she whispered in his ear
“I’ve a fear you won’t come back down to the ground”
and he said, “I’ll always come back to you
just help me this once to get higher up” and he kissed her and he said,

“please twirl me one more time, and don’t stop spinning me
please swirl me in your mind, so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon”
and he was off and gone...

there once was a woman lying in bed
with her lover’s head upon her shoulder
she said, “my darlin’ you sound so faint
don’t tell me it’s time I just can’t take this”
and she told her, “please don’t worry dear
there’s nothing to fear in moving on
but there’s one thing I’d like to ask of you”
and she said, “just tell me darlin’ I’ll do anything, anything”
and she said,

“please twirl me one more time, and don’t stop spinning me
please swirl me in your mind, so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon”
and she was off and away...
