Note from Derek: I heard this busker in the BART station playing guitar and performing Johnny Cash tunes, with a spot-on imitation of the singer's voice. I was thinking about doing a song in that style for Song A Day while riding home on BART and reading an article in the SF Weekly about an upcoming Busby Berkely film festival, and this is the result of those influences. He spent his whole life working At the DMV He had no inclination To start a family He lived inside a cubicle With harsh fluorescent lights He stayed in his apartment And prayed aloud each night "Bring on the dancing girls Oh, bring on the dancing girls From my favorite movie scenes Of Busby Berkeley dance routines Bring on the dancing girls Oh, bring on the dancing girls" All he ever wanted Was to see some dancing girls. At his retirement party He sat there all alone It was the only party That he had ever thrown He packed up his belongings And shouted out goodbye When all he got was silence He offered this reply: "Bring on the dancing girls Oh, bring on the dancing girls From my favorite movie scenes Of Busby Berkeley dance routines Bring on the dancing girls Oh, bring on the dancing girls" All he ever wanted Was to see some dancing girls. �
