Cindy smiles in overcoats
She says, "Please stay a while
Like ice cream floats and dreams
And I will fill your heart with boats and bells
And beams and candy-appled everythings
Bells and beams and candy-appled everythings"
Cindy skips my trampoline
With toys and horns and bouncing things
And even the most silent must sing a song of love
Yes, even the silent they must sing a song of love
Oh, oh

Unhappy girl, she's spinning
Through strings in her curls
And it's only the beginning
Of a trip around the world
Cindy, won't you smile?
Cindy, won't you sleep a while?
I feel I'm just a child
Sinking down one hundred million miles
Oh, oh

    General Commenti dont like the everything is ep version of this song, but the live version is so much better.

    General CommentFirst off milk has a pH of 6.7, 7.0 being a neutral thing.... Therefore milk is just a little acid... I think Cindy is either still a little girl or still acts like a little girl? Acid is something that is a little harsh or corrosive.... Maybe it's like the sugar and spice and a little bit of something not so nice? I'm not sure if it's the version i'm listening to but some of the guitar parts are a bit acid like (i.e. harsh)... This girl is drowning this guy... maybe it's like an appearance isn't everything type of deal.

    General CommentThe lyrics to this song are amazing. It's pure poetry. The words just flow together so nicely. I'm not sure what exactly this song is about, but the way its written is incredible.

    General CommentOn the live version they rarely do the second verse, but once they did it at Sudsy Malone's in Cincinatti, still ending the second verse with the "even the most silent" line. And live, the final "oh" sound is kind of like this: Oh oo oh oo ohhh, ah oo ah oo aaaah...

    General CommentOther bootlegs I have from 1996 have the second verse included. Later, they just dropped the second verse.
