Slinky Thing Lyrics

It was an October morning
Near the carousel.
I met a light young beauty,
And we talked there for a spell.

We walked up by the green lawn,
And my heart began to sing.
Mad man on a bench screams out,
“Hold on to that slinky thing,
Hold on to that slinky thing.”

Went to a party.
Everybody stood around,
Thinking, “Hey, what’s she doing
With a burned out hippie clown?”

Young dudes were grinning,
I can’t say it didn’t sting.
Some punk said, “Pops, you better
Hold on to that slinky thing,
Hold on to that slinky thing.”

More light, more light, more light, more light, more light, more light.
More light, more light, more light, more light, more light, more light.

Today we were strolling
By the reptile cage.
I’m thinking, “Does she need somebody
Who’s closer to her own age?”

Try not to worry
What tomorrow may bring.
I’m just going to do my best to
Hold on to that slinky thing,
Hold on to that slinky thing.

More light, more light, more light, more light, more light, more light.
More light, more light, more light, more light, more light, more light.

Today we were strolling
By the reptile cage.
I’m thinking, “Does she need somebody
Who’s closer to her own age?”

Try not to worry
What tomorrow may bring.
I’m just going to do my best to
Hold on to that slinky thing.

(Repeat and fade)
She smiled,
There’s a sun in my sky.
She laughed,
That’s my power supply.
She stayed with me,
I know heaven is right here on earth.
