Mario And The Hula Girl

Dawn, walking out to the mist-blue air

Making eyes, he delights in his Hula girl

Amore, any eye can see

It’s an old innuendo playing in her long blond hair.

Dawn, and the clubs give up the ghost

Mario and the gay boys and the half-cut host

And she, spilling out of the Limelight rooms

It’s a new orientation for her stiletto shoes.

They are the children of this transfixed moment

He wakes up her emotions with radar-like fingers

He wipes out her past and there’s nothing to linger

Just here in this moment with the sweat of the dance

Still on their faces.

Stand up now, stand up in the name of the law

Carry me away to the carnival at Rio

Tequila storm in my hair, charging the air, don’t really care

If it’s static, it’s ecstatic, go on oowakkadooah like a Hula girl.

Dawn, spreading wide as her easy smile

Locking arms with the others in the carnival file

They glow, in the light of the yellow heat

Sway low with the lanterns, hum to the lazy beat.

Dawn, the tequila is a skin-deep wine

Mario and the Hula girl’s arms entwine

Amore, anyone can see

They awaken the dawning day with this fantasy.
