Cubic Zirconia Belly Ring


She claimed her name was Autumn Rain
Least that's what she said to me
Slinking around her slithery pole
Naked, pasty and free
   (Well damn, she was pasty...in her pasties)

Glistening glitter 'round darkened eyes
Hair the color of roots
I wished I was bare in my underwear
'Stead of trussed up in my suit
   (My black business suit...her in her black leather boots)

   Cubic zirconia belly ring
   I-I wondered if she could sing
   We could form us a band and travel the world
   Just me and her, my Autumn Rain girl

Slipping green beneath the string
The smell of sweet success
A smile, a drink, a druggy stare
The dance, the dance...of the undress  (Oh yes!)

   Cubic zirconia belly ring
   I-I wondered if she could sing
   We could get paying gigs down in Ft. Lauderdale
   Just Autumn Rain and me, and her fabulous tail
   (And I don't mean her life story neither)

   Let's go dancing, Autumn Rain
   Let's go dancing, whatever your name
   I call you Autumn Rain

   Cubic zirconia belly ring
   I-I wondered if she could sing
   We could play sold out shows in seedy strip bars
   Autumn Rain on vocals (and pole), me on guitar
   Me on guitar

   Let's go dancing, Autumn Rain
   Ten dollar dancing, whatever your name
   I call you Autumn Rain
