about

String Arrangement by Alan Grubner

lyrics

I read about your death
in the local paper
Said your age, 54,
Left a note
couldn’t take it anymore anymore anymore
Anymore anymore anymore

I read about your death
in the local paper
not married, no family
Devoted to your job

But they forgot to mention how you liked to laugh
And how you loved to dance the tango
But they forgot to mention how you liked to laugh
And how you loved to dance the tango

Oh oh oh

you were a woman with no outside life
that is the story they’ll tell us today
How to flesh out a life in so few words?
Explain such a tragedy, it is so absurd
they like to keep it simple
for the reader to understand
so they tell us her life was empty sad and bland
How to flesh out a life in so few words?
Explain such a tragedy, it is so absurd

I read about your death
in the local paper
Said your age, 54,
Left a note, couldn’t take it anymore anymore anymore
Anymore anymore anymore
Anymore anymore anymore
Anymore anymore anymore
Anymore anymore anymore


But they forgot to mention how you liked to laugh
And how you loved to dance the tango
But they forgot to mention how you liked to laugh
And how you loved to dance the tango

Dance the Tango
Dance the tango
Dance the tango
Dango the tango
Dance dance dance dance dance
Dance the tango
Ooh oooh ooooh

Dance the tango
oh oh ohhh
