Song: Spin Out - Poem by David SmithWhite

Uneasy, I bumble,
my way through the world.
Beset by all troubles,
that bad luck might hurl.
If life is a struggle,
then love is a pearl.
A beautiful bauble:
I spin for the girl.

I spin for the girl!
I spin for the girl!
I spin like the batons,
she juggles and twirls.
I spin for the girl!
I've paid the full toll.
I spin in mad circles,
and let slip control.

Oh spin doctor, spin doctor,
give me your spin.
How can I make her
see my true self within?
Oh spin doctor, spin doctor,
if you give me a clue,
she'll not forsake me
for somebody new.

I spin for the girl.
I spin for the girl
Crazy and humbled,
I spin for the girl!
I spin for the girl.
I laid out my soul;
but with barely a tumble,
I knew I'd been rolled.

And dizzy, I stumble,
from love's carousel;
with feelings so jumbled,
my mind is a-whirl.
And reeling, I mumble,
it must be a spell.
All dignity crumbles.
I spin for the girl!

I spin for the girl!
I spin for the girl!
Careless, I fumble,
with tassel and curl.
I spin for the girl;
a knockout called Shirl.
And punch drunk and pummelled,
I spin for the girl.

Oh spin doctor, spin doctor,
give me your spin.
I'm not a good loser;
to live I must win.
Oh spin doctor, spin doctor,
give me your cure,
for a heart that is broken,
though my love endures.

I spin for the girl!
I spin for the girl!
Like a black widow,
of web, weft and purl.
I spin for the girl!
My net is unfurled.
I'll capture her shadow,
and spin for the girl!

Oh spin doctor, spin doctor,
have you vaccine?
A jab in the arm,
and a drab world's a dream.
Oh spin doctor, spin doctor,
can you give me a pill?
To forget that I love her,
and I always will.

Oh spin doctor, spin doctor,
medicine man.
Oh spin doctor, spin doctor,
do what you can.
Oh spin doctor, spin doctor,
placebo or sham?
Oh spin doctor, spin doctor,
I spin like the damned.
I spin like the damned.
I spin like the damned...
