One Night Stand

from by Jonathan Burks



I can tell by the way that you walk
and the way you slang your talk
you and me gonna get along
at least until that morning sun comes 'round

everything flits and fleets
so it goes, so it seems
I'll be sad tomorrow when you go
but I'd rather be sad than leave here alone

I'm reaching out my hand
may I have this lonely dance
make my night more grand
honey won't you be my one night stand

the fruit don't fall far from the tree
I'm at your trunk on my bended knee
hoping your boughs might reach
down here where I tend to be

won't you drop a corn-dog a bone
come over and stay at my home
hold me forever for now now now
at least until that morning sun comes 'round


from How I Roll, released September 1, 2012

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here:

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!
