lyrics

I am a skeleton
These are my bones
These are my bones
I rattle and chatter and crack all alone (All alone)
I crack all alone (All alone)

So let me do a dance for you (Let me dance for you)
Let me do a dance for you (Let me dance for you)

Nothing holds me together
Nothing holds me back
Nothing holds me back

So let me do a dance for you (Let me dance for you)
So let me do a dance for you (Let me dance for you)

I had blood and organs somewhere
But I threw them all away
Yeah, I threw them all away
Nails and hair and eyeballs somewhere
But I threw them all away
Yeah, I threw them all away
To show you these bones
These bones

I am a skeleton
Can’t you see these bones?
Can’t you see these bones?

This is all I have left
This is the best I’ve got (Best I’ve got)
This is the best I’ve got (Best I’ve got)

So let me do a dance for you (Let me dance for you)
Let me do a dance for you (Let me dance for you)

I had blood and organs somewhere
But I threw them all away
Yeah, I threw them all away
Nails and hair and eyeballs somewhere
But I threw them all away
Yeah, I threw them all away
To show you these bones
These bones

These bones do a dance for you (Bones dance for you)
Let me do a dance for you (Let me dance for you)

Dog Is Blue Toronto, Ontario

Toronto’s Dog Is Blue is a garage-folk duo made up of Paul Watson, principal songwriter and cookie-tin pedal enthusiast, and Laura Heaney, purveyor of ghost-noises and multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire.

Together they bramble around proudly with all the jangly toys of a tickle-trunk and the surefooted bravado of travelling snake-oil salesmen.
