HANEY AND THE MACHINESHOP

(Guy Thomas)  1979

We were watchin' the 10:30 final news
And losin' the spirit of the night
Well the phone didn't ring and it looked like everything
Would go wrong before it went right
The night was mainly black and rainy
When Haney's car appeared outside
And he strolled in and with a grin dipped into his pocket
And said boys I'm gonna take you for a ride
And we'll get strange, tonight we're gettin' strange
Gonna strain our brains forget our names
And stumble around
Gonna change the same old games
We've been playin' in town

So we drove off a half-lost crosseyed crew
Just plain diggin' our predicament
The Machineshop was a bad stop to be sure
Somehow Haney lost his innocence
From the barmaid's scream I'd say the boy got obscene
And the very next thing I know
We had to leave him behind and started drivin' off blind
With a barfly and crazy Joe
Things are strange, yeah things were getting strange
We're at a stop light with the cops right beside us and then
That's when I swore to myself I'd never do this again

So I looked at the clock and thought we rocked until 6
But it was only 3:30 instead
I said shit Bruce I'm hangin' loose but what can I do
To shake this high from my head
He said it seems son that we done slipped into a dream
But I'm sure we'll wake up again
Because a dream's just a dream and eventually
All things must come to an end
Well it's strange, you know I'm feelin' strange
Woah, woah, woah, woah
