Hold me closer tiny dancer
Only you and you can hear me
Hold me closer tiny dancer
Looking on she sings the songs
Lay me down in sheets of linen
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
The words she knows, the tune she hums

But oh how it feels so real
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
Lay me down in sheets of linen
Lay me down in sheets of linen

Lying here with no one near
When I say softly, slowly
Only you and you can hear me
Lay me down in sheets of linen

And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand
In the auditorium
Piano man he makes his stand
Count the headlights on the highway
Hold me closer tiny dancer
Handing tickets out for God
You had a busy day today
Count the headlights on the highway
Count the headlights on the highway
Lying here with no one near
But oh how it feels so real
Hold me closer tiny dancer
When I say softly, slowly

Jesus freaks out in the street
Count the headlights on the highway

Turning back she just laughs

And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand
You had a busy day today
lady, seamstress for the band Blue jean baby, L.A.

You had a busy day today
The boulevard is not that bad
You had a busy day today
Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
