The Jazz Butcher Lyrics Falling In Love


Falling In Love
Every morning, I wake up
In a new hotel
Try to make it to breakfast
So far I'm doing quite well
But there are times when even the best laid plans go wrong
And I'll be standing on the corner
With another pair of sunglasses gone
What are we doing here?
With the clear blue sky above?
And this real bad case of too much falling in love
I've seen the ships sail off to Germany
I've seen that idiot train
When it has tried to run you over
It comes back and tries it again
You're by my side in one of a thousand pairs of Raybans
And I wish that I could understand
A quarter of the things you were saying
And I don't care too much for the way you kiss
But Lord above
There's this real bad case of too much falling in love
It's just a kind of dis-order
I know it's dreadful and bad
Well I sit in the back of the bus
And sometimes I feel so sad
And there are other times I can't believe the way things go
I start to jibber and to giggle and to yammer whoa-oh-oh-oh
But I'm not complaining
I'd never do that, Lord above
But there's a real bad case of too much falling in love
Oh it's like the bends for a diver
A back seat for the driver
There's a real bad case of too much falling in love
That's all it is
Just a real bad case of too much falling in love
You know it hurts to say that
There's a real bad case of too much falling in love

Distressed Gentlefolk
We were deeply confused young men when we made this record. Max, Jones and I had all been drinking dangerously for over a year now. Generally, we had it down in concert. In just about every other department, however, we were coming to bits, individually and collectively, and to me this record actually shows the morbid state of things at the time.

    Regardless of what Mr.Fish might say, and I'm inclined to think any disparagement was intended as humor, this is the finest o all the Jazz Butcher albums. And that's saying something. A great album.

    dear lord i love this song...
    and i only have an old warped record version that is nearing the last of it's grooves...
    hoping to find another copy...(weird that it isn't on any of the complilations either?
    couldn't believe all the negative things mr fish said about this record...
    it was definitely one of the ones that hooked me me to the gills with it's first tiny tug
