1. E.V. Olive You

From the recording PLAYING THE GHOST

In cart Not available Out of stock



He mixed one shot of sanity
With two shots of vermouth
He served it to humanity
With an olive of pure truth

The whole world drank it greedily
After the prolonged drought
Quickly, just not as speedily,
They spit that olive out

It rolled and rolled along the ground,
Came to rest by a tree
Since there was no one else around
I took it home with me

I placed that olive in a jar
And put it on a shelf
Too valuable to share by far
I kept it for myself

The Beatles had it almost right
When they sang about love
You too can be set free tonight
All you need is olive …

All you need is olive …
All you need is olive …
