Lyrics
Long Story , Short
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 8-24-2018

The room fell pin-drop quiet
As the waitress served the feast
The fat man starts his diet
When there's nothing left to eat


----Chorus ---
But everyone was shaking, as the dancers took the floor
And the band just keep on playing, till they stumbled out the door
There ain't nobody gonna make a long story, short
-----------------

The liar keeps on lying
Till there's no one to deceive
And the preacher keeps on preaching
Till there's no one to believe

-Repeat Chorus-

-Bridge-
I could sing it, like an ordinary song
But the band won't play it. Till you wave your magic wand
----------------

-Repeat Chorus-
