Lyrics

A Bone In The Pan

Written By: Yury Shenkar

Verse 1
Tonight I will be in my chair.
Red light will glow right through my hair.
I’ll sing, and the dancer to my right
Will drop her clothes and kick off the night

Verse 2
My piano is luckily in tune.
It’s not a place for me to croon.
I’ll sing as roughly as I can,
Someone will through a bone in the pan.

Chorus
I’m playing on, and on, and on, and on, and on.
I dream what my life would be when this job is gone.
I can’t think of anything to look forward to.
But I will play and I will sing all night for you.

Verse 3
They’re here to give us bread for love.
This work is not what I dreamed of.
My job is not to shine, not that I would.
They put me here to make you look good.

Chorus X2
I’m playing on and on …

Hey Nephew

Written By: Yury Shenkar

I was walking in my dream through the fields of hay
In that dream I saw my aunt, here's what she had to say:

Hey, hey nephew, come and eat with me
I just made some chicken soup cooked with celery

I was sitting on the porch watching flowers grow
In my mind I saw my aunt waving through the door.

She said:
Hey, hey nephew, come and eat with me
I just made some chicken soup cooked with celery

Once I mentioned to my aunt with a dreamy sigh
That when I grow up just like an eagle I will fly.

So she said:
Hey, hey nephew, come and eat with me
I just made some chicken soup cooked in celery.

Hey, hey nephew, time to step inside
We will have a lot of fun eating side by side

Hey, hey nephew, stop doing your “eagle” thing.
Time to get serious, here's a chicken wing.
