"Pretty Ballerina" as written by and Michael Brown....
I had a date with a pretty ballerina
Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes
I asked her for this dance
And then she obliged me
Was I surprised, yeah
Was I surprised,
No not at all

I called her yesterday,
It should have been tomorrow
I couldn't keep
The joy that was inside
I begged for her to tell me
If she really loved me
Somewhere a mountain is moving
Afraid it's moving
Without me

I had a date with a pretty ballerina
Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes
I asked her for this dance
And then she obliged me
Was I surprised, yeah
Was I surprised, no not at all

And when I wake on a dreary Sunday morning
I open up my eyes to find there's rain
And something strange within said,
Go ahead and find her
Just close your eyes, yeah
Just close your eyes and she'll be there
She'll be there

    General CommentI'm pretty sure its about his wife, who was a ballerina so it seems fitting that it is about her and how much he loves her.

    General CommentVery 70's sounding, like most of the album, a throwback to early garage bands. Yes I believe this is about his wife.
