DARB IN A GIN MILL


So, you're looking for a Darb in a gin mill tonight, 
and it's dark and dank in the street outside. 
Your footsteps echo in the empty street, 
you turn the corner and you feel some heat. 

You can see the lights, you can hear the tones, 
you lean into the doorway and there are the bones... 


Spiffy with Sheba locked in with the hooch; 
the Moll and the Lizard at the end of the room.   
The Sheik with his Hotsy & Totsy abreast, 
and Dumb Dora, her Fall Guy no wiser, all wet.  


Then in comes the Dame, her Jalopy outside, 
she waltzes straight passed you, shouts 'spread out' inside!  
She drifts to the Big Cheese as everyone stops 
and smacks a big kisser on his lips as you watch.


The three broads on the stage click their hips as they turn, 
they lengthen their , for a dollar to earn.

The trumpeter, poised, licks his lips in a flash, 
the bassist cracks each of his fingers for cash,  
the drumsticks knuckle-ride, back and forth, 
as the pianist flexes his arms on the call....

You can see the lights, you can hear the tones, 
you lean into the doorway and there are the bones...
