Spared
I've been spared
all the nickling
all the dimeing

Spared
I've been spared
all the powder
on a trumpet of Gabriel

Don't play that song for me
you won't play that song for me

The riff with the swaddling hair
Those sisters who never broke us
The link missing at the rear
and the halo, halo of locust

Mama danced four feet away
Papa danced four feet away
in the rubbing and fusing
the sealing and pivoting
gotta dance four feet away

Spared
I've been spared
All the handle a body could handle

Spared
I've been spared
All the powder on a Magdalene Mary

Don't play that song for me
you won't play that song for me

Those threads you would never wear
The sobbing that just might choke us
Those tooth fairies wait till they get here
and the halo, halo of locust

I love this season without it's cleft
left hook to the right hook
right cross to the left

I love this season this very night
right cross to the left foot
left hook to the right

Mama danced four feet away
Papa danced four feet away
in the rubbing and fusing
the sealing and pivoting
gotta dance four feet away
