Lyrics

The Thing That Swings

Save your dimes,
For a ticket on a coaster ride.
Shoo them butterflies.
It's all about the thing that swings.

It'll lift you high,
Or it'll drop you like a porcupine.
When it's closing time,
It's all about the thing that swings.

It'll heat you up,
Like a burning coal.
It'll cool you down,
Like an Eskimo.
Another day another dollar.
Life's a bitch in a sequined collar.

And so you see,
You can carp about your history,
Or get hip like me.
It's all about the thing that swings.

It'll heat you up,
Like a burning coal.
It'll cool you down,
Like an Eskimo.
Another day another dollar.
Life's a bitch in a sequined collar.

And so you see,
You can count up all your used to be's,
Or stay rich like me.
It's all about the thing that swings.
