"35 in the Shade" as written by and Carl Allan Newman....
Game on, Cleopatra get mad, pull a rabbit from your top hat.
Pick a card, any card,
When they kept to the yard, you strayed - 35 in the shade.

Game on, Cleopatra get down, leave your coat in the lost and found.
Coasting purely on feel,
Where the others would steal, you paid - 35 in the shade.

Tell me I'm - tell me I'm the best argument for our side.
Every time, every time, the best argument for our side comes from you.
All joking aside, there goes my ride.

Game on, I found you in the stars, holding court in a downstairs bar,
Until the champions arrived,
Where the others survived, we played - 35 in the shade.

Tell me I'm - tell me I'm the best argument for our side.
Every time, every time, the best argument for our side comes from you.
All joking aside, there goes my ride.

    General CommentMore mysterious lyrics from A.C. Newman. Does "35 in the shade" refer to a car, maybe? Although I don't have much idea what they mean I really like these lyrics - the rhyme scheme is clever, and "all joking aside, there goes my ride" is great.

    General Commentyeah, that sounds likely. No idea what I was thinking with that car idea, which makes NO sense.
