Blue Umbrella

Tits & Ass Demo, 15 Junie 1993

It was a rainy morning
The leaves fought a hard November
In a soft unguarded moment she jumped into my life
She had a blue umbrella with a top of silver
She wore a coat in shiny tangerine like the firy southern sky

Oh I, I wanted to show her
That I’d really like to get to know her
That I didn’t mind to spend some time

She turned at the bookstore
Seemed to stop to buy a paper
I noticed from behind two trucks
With engines roaring wild
When I made my crossing
I saw that blue umbrella disappear into this crowded bus
I watched the red taillights

Oh I, I wanted to show her
(I really wanted to show her)
That I’d really like to get to know her
That I didn’t mind to spend some time

There are lonely nights when she disappears from my bed
I wish I knew what goes on in her head
What goes on in her head?

Oh I, I wanted to show her
(I really wanted to show her)
That I’d really like to get to know her
That I didn’t mind to spend some time

I wanted to show her
(I really wanted to show her)
That I’d really like to get to know her
That I didn’t mind to spend some time
Spend some time
Spend some time

Per: I wrote this a very long time ago. Probably for Rox. I forgot about it for many years. I think we included my demo on The Rox Box, can’t really remember. Glad you like it. Boogie on!
