lyrics

Play it slow, play it slow. It's like sunlight in December,
And I need to learn the music; play it slow, please Joe,
For it speaks to me of something that my heart can't quite remember
But I know that I can get it if you'll only play it slow.

Now you play a lively tune and while I'm trying to absorb it
I can see you're up to something, 'cause your face gets very calm,
Then the tune picks up its paws and goes cavorting off to orbit
Like a science fiction rocket powered by a fusion bomb!

So I pry my melted sneakers up and stagger from the crater--
Now I know your showman's instincts tell your fingers "go to town"
But I really would prefer you left the fireworks for later
When it burns up on re-entry, I can never get it down.
