THE TWO-STEP WALTZ

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


           I.  the stadium in Cashville
               sits upon a landfill.
               the left-field grass,
               it sways in the air.
               nobody ever
               plays over there.

          II.  the cheerleaders in Cashville
               dance upon an anthill.
               but in the dark,
               when wallets are still,
               they all start
               their strange quadrille...

      CHORUS:  doing the two-step waltz,
               doing the two-step waltz.
               if you can hold onto
               one-two-three, one-two,
               you'll do the two-step waltz.

         III.  each batter makes a single,
               and fatter pockets jingle.
               they never hit anything
               over your head.
               Cashville plays it
               safe instead.

          IV.  six umpires run the show.
               players come and go.
               some of them
               will imitate
               movements they
               did not create...

      CHORUS:  doing the two-step waltz,
               doing the two-step waltz.
               if you can hold onto
               one-two-three, one-two,
               you'll do the two-step waltz.

           V.  twelve locks, no escape-o.
               send trucks full of capos.
               "1 - 4 - 5"
               the plates all read.
               one key
               is all you need.

  END CHORUS:  waltzing a two-step,
               dancing a new step,
               from the beginning
               to the ninth inning
               I'm doing the two-step waltz.
                  from the beginning
                  to the ninth inning
                  I'm doing the two-step waltz.
