"Flamenco" as written by Robert Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Joseph Paul Langlois and Robert Gordon Sinclair....
Does it diminish your
Super-capacity to love

Walk like a matador,
Don't be chicken-shit
And turn breezes into rivulets

Flamenco-sweep the air
And weave the sun
And stamp your feet for everyone

Does it exhibit your
Natural tendency to hate

Maybe a prostitute
Could teach you
How to take a compliment

Maybe I'll go to New York,
I'll drag you there
You said, "no one drags me
Anywhere"

Does it diminish your
Super-capacity to love

    General Commentthis is one of my absolute favourite songs and i've never been able to determine exactly why. to me, it's a great song for a midnight drive, but it's also a great song to remind me of humility. for all the posturing we do, what are we, really?

    General CommentWhat is "it"? It seems to be an element of her personality. Narcissism and ambition are two that may fit.

    This is some great poetry. Every stanza is thought-provoking. It goes well with the calm music.
