"Electric Slide" as written by and Neville Livingston....
Dear old dad
I thought this song up
it's been four years now
since you've been older

Dear old dad
I wrote this letter
all the stars are embedded
with salt and understanding

I lost control
of my mind and my soul
but then she came along
gonna sing her a song

Don't leave me lonely (your one and only)

I got this girl in my head
she's in the palm of my hand
why would I want someone less extraordinary
I'd like to earn your respect
but I can't handle suspense
let's stop the suffering today for milk and honey

It's a wonderful world
that we live in
try to steer on track
the cup you're given

When you stop to absorb
and start to love me
we can stop this world
and do it slowly

Kiss your Yoni girl
if you got the time
to turn your life around
and do what you like

Don't leave me lonely (your one and only)

Just like a drug in my head
I felt the shock and the red
and even though I feel scared we can subvert it
I tried this rock and rule game
that's why I struggle today
you say monogamy's dead, guess you don't know me

I'll stop staring and keep my eyes on the floor
I'll keep walking but I can't quite do it alone
I'll stop staring and keep my eyes on the floor
I'll keep crying til I reach the -

Don't walk away and ignore me
I'm feeling better
a little lucky

I got this girl in my head
she's in the palm of my hand
why would I want someone less extraordinary
I'd like to earn your respect
but I can't handle suspense
let's stop the suffering today for milk and honey

Just like a drug in my head
I felt the shock and the red
and even though I feel scared we can subvert it
I tried this rock and rule game
that's why I struggle today
you say monogamy's dead, guess you don't know me

    General CommentIt's about a guy who has one girl in his head and one in his bed (aka life). And it's about a guy who will always be with second best (many second bests year after year after year) because he holds onto shame like it's a security blanket and decided to settle for scraps long ago....so the girl in his head took her cue from him and hit the road (Jack). Oops...it's a new day and I promised myself not to waste any more time on this site. C-ya...hopefully never.
