Tickling the Ivories

Tickling the Ivories - John Paciga
00:00 / 00:00

Long week, all uptight

Oh thank God it's Friday night

Too many things that need to be done

Not enough time; I'm only one person

I don't know why don't have a clue

But I'm stuck inside, can't break through

But oh who cares? ‘Cause I'm feeling alright

Ain't gonna waste a perfect night

Oh when I hear the bass a walking

When I hear the guitars a talking

Can't help but tap my feet, feel the rhythm 

Stand up and greet the day with a song of my own

If you call you'll know why I won't be answering the phone

I won't have it any other way

Gotta play, gotta play, gotta play

The world's in my fingertips tonight

Prefer when everything's black and white

Someday I'll travel the world

But tonight oh please, please, please

Let me stay in and play. You know me,

I'll be tickling the ivories

Oh I wonder why life

Is like the touch of an angel then the blade of a knife

Too much unpredictability

Need some time away some time to be free

Am I searching for something that can't be found? 

Gotta get my feet back on the ground

Gotta take a step back from it all

But before you walk you've gotta crawl

Oh when I hear the bass a walking

When I hear the guitars a talking

Can't help but tap my feet, feel the rhythm 

Stand up and greet the day with a song of my own

If you call you'll know why I won't be answering the phone

I won't have it any other way

Gotta play, gotta play, gotta play

The world's in my fingertips tonight

Prefer when everything's black and white

Someday I'll travel the world

But tonight oh please, please, please

Let me stay in and play. You know me,

I'll be tickling the ivories

I won't have it any other way

Gotta play, gotta play, gotta play

The world's in my fingertips tonight

Prefer when everything's black and white

Someday I'll travel the world

But tonight oh please, please, please

Let me stay in and play. You know me,

I'll be tickling the ivories

Gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta play
