“Calico Girlfriend” Lyrics

Mike: It’s a punk rumba.

Me and my calico girlfriend
Starting a set of new rules
Watching the stars as they drop in
Making the night time a fool

Wandering over a roadway
Changing the signs of the times
Looking for love and a new day
Seeing with more than our eyes

Keeper of men and a shadow
Follow us up to the top
Taking the latch off the window
Giving us more than we’ve dropped

Me and my calico girlfriend
Suddenly stare at the face
Of time and its hope that we’ll win
Then softly drop out of the race

[break]

Keeper of men and a shadow
Follow us up to the top
Taking the latch off the window, whoa
Giving us more than we’ve dropped

Me and my calico girlfriend
Suddenly stare at the face
Of time and its hope that we’ll win
Then softly drop out of the race
