A Jazz Bar that Plays Rock

Tucked in the basement of a New York block


Is a small jazz bar that also plays rock

Twinkling eyes and smile so disarming


She sings her songs with a voice that’s charming
Scarlet rose in hair and bold lips that are matching
“Hello darlings” she says in a tone that’s catching

Tucked in the basement of a New York block


Is a small jazz bar that also plays rock

He stood in a quiet corner with amber glass in hand


Ice cube melted while the witch wove her magic without a wand
His heart skipped a beat each time her pitch was high
She locked her eyes with his and her mouth went dry

Tucked in the basement of a New York block


Is a small jazz bar that also plays rock

He knew why she sang the way she did


Today the band played to her tune and as she bid
Eons ago in an empty stable she had stood with her face hid
Walking backwards with wobbly knees and knocking the milk can lid

A filthy hand from behind held her violent shaking form


Undid her life in a second, leaving her on the floor, teary eyed and broken by the storm

A blurry image – the eerie closeness, the chase and the fateful end
There was no going back or a way for the canvas to mend
In the light of the day, she limped home and said, “Why me? Sid”
I stared into her eyes and thought, “I wish I knew. Like you I too am a kid”

Tucked in the basement of a New York block


Is a small jazz bar that also plays rock

Below the arc lights upright she stood


Tears rolled down her face that seemed made of wood
Oh, what wouldn’t I give dear Kim to wipe those memories if I could?
To see the smile that touch your lips reach your eyes I would

A hundred hands came together every day to applaud her style


Like a school girl she giggled and blew sweet kisses all the while

A wave here and a wave there, she was their star she knew
She cried every night into her pillow and none of them had a cue

She walked up to him and said, “How strange is life or time, I can hear it tic toc”
Tucked in the basement of New York block is my home, a small jazz bar that also plays rock
