​One Trick Tony

This song is by You Am I and appears on the album Deliverance (2002).

Well I gave up drinking for a whole half-week
To see how the story ended,
Two left feet and a set complete
Of the ivories newly-stained white.

One Trick Tony took himself out for lunch
To celebrate the feel of his suit
If this disguise played through from the back of the room
Even for the last of the wine

Singin' now -
Well here's to your daughters,
Cause the curves and corners
Make my mind go slow
So bring the ol' sun down, we're coming out

You can never go back home
You can never go back home
When your plans all turn to dust, yeah,
You gotta sing from your guts,

She asked me "How can you write all them sad sad songs?
Celebrate the lonely and the lame?"
I said "The joy in you, I just couldn't compute,
'Gainst a rhythmn and a good chord change."

One Trick Tony took himself out for drinks
Fought the poetry and smoke
To ease on back in the drink
From the back of the Russian tea wrote
For me now

Well here's to your daughter,
Cause the curves and corners
Make my mind go slow
So bring the ol' sun down
We're coming out

You can never go back home
You can never go back home
When your plans all turn to dust, yeah,
You gotta sing from your nuts,

Well here's to your daughter,
Cause the curves and corners
Make my mind go slow
I'm gone
I'm gone

You can never go back home
You can never go back home, oh sing it now,
You can never go back home
You can never go back home
When your plans all turn to dust, yeah,
You gotta sing from your nuts.
