lyrics

Hey there Mr. Flashy Pants
Hey there voice of thunder
As you lie there flat on your back
Does it ever make you wonder
If all the pomp and circumstance
And all the fancy moves
Were really worth the effort
Or did they make you look the fool?

Hey there Mr. Flashy Pants
Hey there General Custer
You've showed us all your best dance moves
And dazzled us with bluster
So tell me
how did that work out?
Do you
have a bit of doubt?

Hey there, Mr. Flashy Pants
Hey there, Mr. Flashy Pants
Hey there, Mr. Flashy Pants
Hey there, Mr. Flashy Pants
Dance

Hey there Mr. Flashy Pants
Hey there new boy wonder
Do you feel that creeping doubt quite yet?
Do you wonder if you've blundered?
You've thrown around some mighty words
And shouted them quite loud
But your words feel so cheap
We don't believe you now

Hey there, Mr. Flashy Pants
Hey there, Mr. Flashy Pants
Hey there, Mr. Flashy Pants
Hey there, Mr. Flashy Pants
Dance

One day you might understand
I hope that you will understand
But I'm not sure you'll ever understand
What I mean

Hey there, Mr. Flashy Pants
Hey there, Mr. Flashy Pants
Hey there, Mr. Flashy Pants
Hey there, Mr. Flashy Pants
Dance

about

Letter Seventeen Norcross

Whimsical indie pop from a one-man band. Except when other people help. Which is quite often. So it's not like a one-man band at all.
Oh. And there are songs about donkeys.
