Play Me a Polka

(for Pat DiNizio)

Play me a polka, Pat
Beneath the Barbie Doll heads
At Charlies in your hat
Play me a polka, Pat
Play it

They're dancing to your words
Wanna hear "A Girl Like You"
Older men with younger girls
Paranoid that they're not you

Strummin' in the black light
Lint on your shirt glowing white
This Beatles kind of night
Just wait 'til the moments tight

And play me a Polka, Pat
Beneath the Barbie Doll heads
At Charlies in your hat
Play me a polka, Pat
Play it

Out back where they pay up
You give me a polka dance
But the music's all stopped
You left out the polka, Pat

Tell me, what's up with that?
I know it's not Black Sabbath
To get you all revved up
But it's just a polka, Pat

Play me a polka, Pat
Beneath the Barbie Doll heads
At Charlies in your hat
Play me a polka, Pat
Play it
