"Silver Heels" as written by and Robert Welch....
She came in like a hurricane
Wearing boots and diamond rings
With a fox fur on her shoulder
She set wondering
And I could tell she was feeling abandoned
Because she flashed a look across my way
She said hop for a ride
You'll never ask me but I'll tell you anyway

She took me out on the blackboard jungle
Put me straight in a hurricane
She hypnotized my eyes with her silver heeled ways
If I could sing like Paul McCartney, or get funky like Etta James
I'd never change, I'd never change, I'd never change silver heeled ways

She came in and her flags were flying
She was a sailboat of sweet perfume
And I could see that her eyes were smiling
From across the room
Well I couldn't think of conversation
I was busy looking at her furs
She said hey, you'll never ask me
So I guess I'll say the word

She took me out on the blackboard jungle
Put me straight in a hurricane
She hypnotized my eyes with her silver heeled ways
If I could sing like Paul McCartney, and funky like Etta James
I'd never change, I'd never change, No I'd never change silver heeled ways

(silver, silver heels) that's what I mean
(silver) whoo talking bout silver (silver heels)
(silver) alright (silver heels)
I'm talkin' bout silver (silver) silver heels (silver)
She took me out on the blackboard jungle
Put me straight in a hurricane
She hypnotized my eyes with her silver heeled ways
If I could sing like Paul McCartney, and funky like Etta James
I'd never change, No I'd never change her, I'd never change silver heeled ways

(silver) Oooh silver heels
(silver) talkin' bout silver heels
(silver) silver heels
(silver) that's what I mean...

    General CommentCertainly Stevie Nicks was not Fleetwood Mac's only mystic...Bob Welch would certainly fit that bill. I love the references to Paul McCartney and Etta James in the chorus. Rarely does Macca get much respect, so the mention is a neat tip of the hat to him.

    General CommentHow would you compare this song to Those Shoes those by the Eagles? This song is about not wanting her to change and those songs is about disapproving of her. She either a high priced call girl or a drug dealer or both. "She hypnotized my eyes with her silver heeled ways” seems to apply she gave him drugs that got him high.

    Cathy Smith who killed John Belushi March 5, 1982 was known as Silverbag because she sold drugs out of a silver pursue.

    General CommentIn the first verse, I think "She said hop for a ride" should be, "She said, 'Hi four-eyes' "

    (referring to Welch's eyeglasses)
