lyrics

I dreamed of Paul Newman last night
He looked so handsome with his pool queue
and his necktie
And those famous eyes of steel

He was shooting nine ball in my local bar
I was sipping on a cocktail watching from afar
Smokey half lit room set a nice scene

I pulled some confidence
From the pool of human endeavor
Walked up to him tried to pull myself together
Tapped him on his shoulder
He turned around and looked at me

I spoke and told him I could beat him in three games straight
In the first one I potted the nine of the break
In the second one I planted the nine of off the three

Stuff of dreams

Come the third game man he didn’t stand a change
I potted each ball in turn around the table I danced
He stood there stiff as stone in complete disbelief

He put his arm around my should said
Hey you’re a pretty cool kid
We had a good laugh, we chewed the shit
He said I’m gonna write you a part
And put you in my next movie

We found a quiet spot in the corner of the bar
He told me about his life as a movie star
Cried when i spoke of east of eden and James Dean

He said hey ben I’ve gotta go I’ve gotta chariot waiting
But if you promise to be good
Maybe in heaven ill be waiting
Brace yourself for the concept of immortality

Stuff of dreams

Now he’s up there in heaven I want to go there too
Have a beer in the sun play a game of pool or two
Ride around on the clouds on his motorbike
Feel the freedom of eternity all day or night
No troubles no worries there shall be peace
And in that divine moment time will freeze
