  •  There was a time... (7+ / 0-)

    ... when I was consumed by love...

    ... so that I might learn what Love is...

    She Leaves The Gypsies
    (Howling at the Moon)

    words and music by
    Justice Putnam

    1) My baby's got
    Such a sweet disposition
    She'll stop traffic
    In Paris at noon
    She might take
    A little Basque vacation

    She'll leave the gypsies (m/16)
    Howling at the moon.

    2) My love is like
    Some sweet libation
    The kind you drink
    At some Left Bank Rue
    She'll take you
    Way past intoxication

    One glance at her (m/16)
    And you begin to swoon.

    3) My baby's not
    Afraid of Tradition
    Just watch the seditious
    Way that she moves
    It's not that
    She waits for consummation

    She wants love (m/16)
    And a whole lot of truth.

    My baby's got
    Such a sweet disposition
    She'll stop traffic
    In Paris at noon
    She might take
    A little Basque vacation

    She'll leave the gypsies (m/16)
    Howling at the moon.
