lyrics

with hard bunions on her feet
scarcely anything to eat
these are the women that we meet in the show
they’re spinning round and feeling grand
and hoping that the dancing fans might meet their eye

the feeling’s really hard to beat
but success it’s not complete
until there’s something good to eat in spite of fame
they’re still spinning round and feeling grand
and hoping that the common man might meet their eye

like a fireman or a cowboy is not a far cry for a little boy
or a sports star, or a doctor, nay, more likely a crook, or a street whore
these are some realities
so call mommy, call daddy and show ‘em what you’ve won
and tell ‘em how you’ve done, it’s your life

and with arthritis in both feet
and her dress the bedroom sheet
like a ghost she roams the streets with passing care
still spinning round and feeling grand
and hoping that the common man might meet her eye
please don’t tempt the hand of fate
with expectations you can’t meet,
lest you find this subject state fraught with error
then spinning round and feeling grand
is really your most well played hand extend it forth

to a fireman, or a cowboy, that's not a far cry for a little boy
or a sports star, or the doctor, nay, more likely a crook, or a street whore
these are some realities
so call mommy, call daddy, and show ‘em what you’ve won
and tell ’em how you’ve done, it’s your life

about

Hod And the Helpers Santa Cruz, California

Hod And the Helpers is the alt-folk outlet of singer/songwriter Hod Hulphers. Their lovely psych tinged 1970s-sounding songs ask the listener to pay attention to their simplest activities. There’s an empathetic pathos to their music, a self-conscious bitterness rare in modern songwriting. The band features the talents of AJ Marquez, Dan Potthast, Greg Braithwaite, and Jeff Stultz. ... more
