This is another one that was pretty much written on the spot at Claypots. Even the chorus was as it was first go. An old lyric but a good fit.
The lyrics - a bemoaning of the banality/the amorality of modern life.


He wears a heady perfume
As he surveys the scene
Down at Jo-Jo’s on a Friday night
At happy hour

Sun-lounge blondes and I.T. entrepreneurs
Comparing accessories
Day-glo slacks and retro style
They all seem so immune

But all that glitters is not gold
And all these creatures seem so bold
Beneath the shadows, the neon lights
They fall so fast

Fast buck, slow suck, sitting up a corner
Try your luck, it could happen to you
You walk the walk, now talk the talk
Let’s do a line, let’s make a deal

Let’s fall in love

So seize the day and make the play
It’s a toll-free zone
Nobody’s watching you can do what you please
And what pleases you is a modern life

No rules, no fear, get loud, get down
If it feels good it must be right
But burst my bubble
Isn’t there something missing?

Let’s fall in love


from DAY OF THE DOG, released April 18, 2014
