It feels like flying when I see your face
I'm charged with the power of amazing grace
A flip switch signal on permanent green
Like the palm of my hand on a tambourine
Dumb rocks filling up my poor head
Did you just say what I thought you said
First cat back here gets the cream
And bounce a little rhythm off my tambourine
chorus:
Smack it in the middle, toss it in the air
I don't care you can play me anywhere
Rolled and rattled when I'm out of steam
You got my head ringing like a tambourine
A curveball coming that I din't see
A flash flood washing out a dried-up creek
I went in muddy but I came out clean
Like a Baptist banging on a tambourine
(repeat chorus)
You're a spin-around Gypsy in the moonlight
Cymbals flashing in the firelight
I'm free-falling into a dream
My head and heart banging like a tambourine
(repeat chorus)
Rolled and rattled when I'm out of steam
You got my head ringing like a tambourine
