Lick Your Lips

Summertime… Lick your lips
Summer time
Curl your callused fingertips around the sound of
Summertime… Lick your lips

How can we possibly employ a better mood altering incense
than this is love intense, this joyous noise?
Better than a sold-out gig with double encore and magic in the wings.

But I can make you have a double encore too!
And I can make you sing, and magic is stoking you in the….

Summertime… Lick your lips
Summertime… Lick your lips

I just got back from a trip to the mirror
unpacked my baggage and sorted my fears
into neat little piles to be put away
because I am here, I am here and I want to stay.
Please don’t doubt it!

But I can make you have a double encore too
I can make you sing (uh-huh)

I am thrusting your words straight back through the skin of their sounds
I am exposing your square, scared thoughts as round.
Please don’t doubt it.

Summertime
Lick your lips, Lick your lips, Lick your lips…Summertime… Lick your lips
Summer time
Curl your callused fingertips around the sound of
Summertime… Lick your lips
