Chess on Grass.

You can let it go
You can let it go

You can let it go
You can let it go


You can let it go
But it won’t let you go
It’ll take your middle stump
That red cherry will
Take it, real bad

Come here mister
Let me engage you
Engage you in a game
Engage you in my game -
Chess on Grass
Chess on Grass
Oh yeah, chess on grass

Too bad if you won’t last
But it sure has,
And if the world don’t end
It sure will

I’m talking about
Chess on Grass
Chess on Grass

Cricket’s too common a name
With all kinda new evil attached
I’d rather sit back, sip on my ale
And listen to some good ol’ JJ Cale

Time before Clapton borrowed cocaine
Time before cricket burrowed cocaine
Time before one guy gave another a slap
Time before Modi wanted us all to clap

I’m talking about
Chess on grass

Hope it goes on and on
And on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on

Come here baby,
Come to me baby,
You’re my
Chess on Grass
Oh yes you are

Gimme five!
Five days baby!

Chess on Grass.

(To be performed by Jeff Beck+Rod Stewart, ideally)

Superb!

Hate to say it but I told you so!!!MaryJane would make any game sane,
But even the wacky backy,
couldnt redeem dud shindigs like ICL,
Deep drag later ... that's just as well!!!

Chess on grass! So this is part 1. Hmm... all of a sudden you gave me the urge to hunt for my old old rod stewart collection... though I doubt those tapes will play.

scorpi - they'll play. if they're there. My downtown train tape took the last metro outta here.
