Stick Or Twist

from by Robin Grey

about

Perhaps a slightly indulgent song, written in three time signatures about the dilemma of wanting to gig abroad, not wanted to fly to get there and not being able to afford the train.

lyrics

I can look at this and I can
Reminisce about this and that for a day or two.
If ignorance is bliss and nothing is amiss then I would insist
We get there the easy way

I don't want to do it, I don't want to do it,
I don't want to do it, I don't want to no
But I want to be there, but I want to be there
But I want to be there, but I want to go

I can look at this and I can
Stick or twist regardless of the cards in my hand.
In the light of day it seems that
Man's flying machines will always mark the sky with their lines.

I don't want to do it, I don't want to do it,
I don't want to do it, I don't want to no
But I want to be there, but I want to be there
But I want to be there, but I want to go

I'll see Ru on Tuesday then I'll know
I'll see Ru on Tuesday then I'll know
