Song Description

A day spent in the company of my musical heroes

Lyrics

I took tea with Thom at around nine thirty
In a strange kind of way it was his tunes that taught me
Given half a chance, anyone can play guitar
He left me at ten in a fast German car

And then I walked to the park by the gates to the cemetry
Resplendent in white, I played croquet with Morrissey
He spoke with an effortless arrogant flair
Complaining of the fact that he didn't have a stitch to wear

Suffice to say it's my story and I'm sticking to it
Is it really a crime if I elaborate?
The ebb and flow, of the day
We all like to dream and perhaps, yes, I over-do it
But the liscence I take is only poetic
For which I don't, I don't have to pay

For lunch I retired to the heartbreak hotel
For burgers with the King, though his guts, they don't work so well
As I took my seat he looked me square in the eye
What do you see? he said , the devil in disguise

I called on Sonny and Browny and Muddy in their own homes
They were chillin' on the front porch, the origional rolling stones
Fats and James, well they were there too
I got my mojo workin' when the Fat man sang the blues

Suffice to say it's my story and I'm sticking to it
Is it really a crime if I elaborate?
The ebb and flow, of the day
We all like to dream and perhaps, yes, I over-do it
But the liscence I take is only poetic
For which I don't, I don't have to pay

Freewheelin' with George to the Red House to jam with Jimmy
My sweet Lord knows, he really puts the voodoo in me
Jimmy was spaced without care or concern
But when he picked up that guitar
I could tell the fire still burned

I haven't had a dream, in a long time
But that one day, well it worked out just fine
And I know, it'll always be with me
The day I played croquet with Morrissey
