Brandy ~ Looking Glass

You know what always gets me about this song? If these sailors have been so long out to sea, do you really think that the first thing on their minds is what a fine wife Brandy is going to make?? :grin:

Indulge me please.... I've looked for a clip to this song for ages. It's part of the soundtrack of my life. It's a one hit wonder by Aliotta, Haynes, and Jeremiah, little known outside the midwest. You've got to read the lyrics, see the video, and listen (and walk and chew gum :) ). Beautiful song, with some d*mn good piano....

Lake Shore Drive

Aliotta, Haynes, and Jeremiah - Lake Shore Drive

There’s a road I’d like to tell you about, lives in my home town

Lake Shore Drive the road is called and it’ll take you up or down

From rags on up to riches fifteen minutes you can fly

Pretty blue lights along the way, help you right on by

And the blue lights shining with a heavenly grace, help you right on by

And there ain’t no road just like it

Anywhere I found

Running south on Lake Shore Drive heading into town

Just slippin’ on by on LSD, Friday night trouble bound

And it starts up north from Hollywood, water on the driving side

Concrete mountains rearing up, throwing shadows just about five

Sometimes you can smell the green if your mind is feeling fine

There ain’t no finer place to be, than running Lake Shore Drive

And there’s no peace of mind, or place you see, than riding on Lake Shore Drive

And there ain’t no road just like it

Anywhere I found

Running south on Lake Shore drive heading into town

Just slicking on by on LSD, Friday night trouble bound

And it’s Friday night and you’re looking clean

To early to start the rounds

A ten minute ride from the Gold Coast back make sure you’re pleasure bound

And it’s four o’clock in the morning and all of the people have gone away

Just you and your mind and Lake Shore Drive, tomorrow is another day

And the sunshine’s fine in the morning time, tomorrow is another day

And there ain’t no road just like it

Anywhere I found

Running south on Lake Shore drive heading into town

Just snaking on by on LSD, Friday night trouble bound
