Love at the Five and Dime 歌詞

Love At The Five And Dime (LP版) - Nanci Griffith

Written by:Nanci Griffith

1 2 cha cha cha

 

Rita was sixteen years

 

Hazel eyes and chestnut hair

 

She really made the Woolworth counter shine

 

And Eddie was a sweet romancer

 

And a darn good dancer

 

They'd waltz the aisles of the five and dime

 

Eddie played the steel guitar

And his mama cried 'coz he played in the bars

 

And kept young Rita out late at night

 

So they married up in Abilene

Lost a child in Tennessee

 

Still that love survived

 

'Cause they'd sing

 

Dance a little closer to me

 

Dance a little closer now

Dance a little closer tonight

 

Ohh

 

Dance a little closer to me

 

It's closing time and love's on sale

 

Tonight at this five and dime

 

One of the boys in Eddie's band

 

Took a shine to Rita's hands

So Eddie ran off with the bass man's wife

 

Oh but he was back by June

 

And we singin' a different tune

 

And sportin' miss Rita back by is side

 

And he sang

Dance a little closer to me

 

Dance a little closer now

 

Dance a little closer tonight

 

Dance a little closer to me

 

It's closing time and love's on sale

Tonight at this five and dime

 

Eddie traveled with the barroom bands

 

'Till arthritis took his hands

 

Now he sells insurance on the side

 

Oh Rita's got a house to keep dimestore novels

And a love so sweet

 

They dance to the radio late at night

 

And still sings

Dance a little closer to me

 

Dance a little closer now

 

Dance a little closer tonight

 

Oh

 

Dance a little closer to me

 

Hey it's closing time

And love's on sale tonight at this five and dime

 

Rita was sixteen years

Hazel eyes and chestnut hair

 

She really made the Woolworth counter shine

 

Eddie was a sweet romancer

 

And Eddie was a darn good dancer

 

And they'd waltz the aisles of the five and dime

 

Who live a simple life

 

They'd waltz the aisles of the five and dime

 

C'mon Lewis let's go

 

Ohh

 

 

We go through all aisles of the five and dime
