about

I'll always think of this one as the Coca-Cola song. I got caught in the rain after a band rehearsal, walking down the street with my guitar case over my head ... my grey suede shoes had holes in the soles. Stopped under an awning for a minute and there was this old Coca-Cola sign in the window advising me to enjoy my beverage here ... some rehearsals were legendary.

lyrics

I walk her beat from dusk to dawn
Coca-cola flashing sign
Enjoy your beverage here
Enjoy your beverage here

As my head succumbs to the pounding Euro beat
Coca-cola flashing sign
I used to meet her here
I used to meet her here

And I can’t take no more
As I’m rolling on the floor

You could say I’m under serious strains of pressure
You could say I’m unstable and obscure
You couldn’t lose, standing in my shoes
It takes a serious strain to make the world go round.

At night I find I lose my sense of time
Check my Seiko wristwatch
Just to find I’m running late
Just to find I’m running bait, yeah

I shake my head, signals turning red
Coca-cola flashing sign
Enjoy your beverage here
Enjoy your beverage here

Get Serious
