Strangers Talk to Me in Colorado Springs on a Thursday Night

from Sometimes Mother Really Does Know Best

Strangers Talk To Me
by Christine Lavin

Mmmm pop pah
mmmm pop pah
mmmm pop pah
mmmm pop pah

I have been travelling
since 1981
I've been to Australia twice
I've seen Dame Edna in the outback sun
I've been to Switzerland
Germany, England, Canada, Alaska,
Hawaii and the contiguous states
everywhere I go strangers talk to me
I guess I have a friendly face

strangers talk to me
strangers talk to me

all the songs I'll sing tonight
begin from a place that's true
sometimes I will exaggerate
you'll probably figure it out when I do

Turn off your cell phone
turn off your beeper

I am here in Colorado Springs
it's a Thursday night
I am here in Colorado Springs
it's a Thursday night

Look at that woman in the pretty red dress
the man sitting with her is her boyfriend I guess
look at that man with the fluffy grey hair
the best bunch of follicles I've seen anywhere

Look at that woman with the friendly smile
she looks kinda sweet but inside we know she's wild
look at that couple what a magical sight
dazzling like diamonds in daylight

strangers talk to me
strangers talk to me
strangers talk to me
strangers talk to me

I am here in Colorado Springs
I am here in Colorado Springs
I am here
I am here
I am
I am
I I I I
I am here in Colorado Springs
it's a Thursday night
