Each month (more or less), we will install a lyric sheet here for a Shrimp City Slim original song that might be timely.  

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This song appeared on two CDs (so far): a solo version on "Dark Road Piano" (2006) and a band arrangement on "Star Marina" (2013).  The song speaks for itself.  Do YOU believe in reincarnation?

(WE SHOULD BE) NAKED (words & music: Gary Erwin, copyright 1999, published by Blue Chasqui Music (BMI).

CHORUS

(We should be) naked / It's the way we come in / It's the way we go out / What's all the ruckus about?

(We should be) naked / After all's said and told / the body's a box where you carry your soul

VERSES

--It's not Republican, it's not Democrat / It's not where you've been, it's not where you're at

It's not the clothes and it's not in the hair / It's not what you've got under your underwear

--It's not your credit line, not who's on your side / It's not where you live, it's not what you drive

It's not your nation, your color or faith / It's not education, your birthplace or age

--Sometimes everything is not as it seems / You might be awake or this could be a dream

But everything evens out in the end / When you kiss us goodbye and start all over again

CHORUS
