Two bottles of whiskey for the way
And I sure would like some sweet company
And I’m leaving tomorrow, what do you say?

Yet there are moments when the walls of the mind grow thin; when nothing is unabsorbed, and I could fancy that we might blow so vast a bubble that the sun might set and rise in it and we might take the blue of midday and the black of midnight and be cast off and escape from here and now.

You take the grey skies out of my way
You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day
Turned a bright spark into a flame

Come on, baby, let’s not fight
We’ll go dancing, everything will be all right
