"Tin Man"

(As recorded by America)
DEWEY BUNNELL

Sometimes late, when things are real
And people share the gift of gab
Between themselves
Some are quick, to take the bait
And catch the perfect prize that waits
Among the shelves

But Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man
That he didn't, didn't already have
And Cause never was a reason for the evening
Or the Tropic of Sir Galahad
So please, believe in me, when I say

I'm spinning round, round, round, round
Smoke glass stain, bright color
Image going down, down, down, down
Soap suds green like bubbles

Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man
That he didn't, didn't already have
And Cause never was a reason for the evening
Or the Tropic of Sir Galahad
So please, believe in me, when I say

I'm spinning round, round, round, round
Smoke glass stain, bright color
Image going down, down, down, down
Soap suds green like bubbles

No, Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man
That he didn't, didn't already have
And Cause never was a reason for the evening
Or the Tropic of Sir Galahad
So please, believe in me, oo.


:wtf:

The following was taken from VenturaHighway.com and the response is from the writer of the song, Dewey Bunnell. Great song by the way!

1. Jeff : What was the inspiration for the lyrics of "Tin Man"?

Dewey : "As for "Tin Man"...the lyric was built around the one line, so grammatically well written: "Oz never did give nothin' to the Tin Man, that he didn't already have." We all know that this is the obvious central theme of "The Wizard of Oz"...that all the characters already possessed the qualities that they were seeking. After that I simply built a collage of word pictures that really did not fit together, but helped create a visual effect..."spinnin' round, smoke, glass, stained bright colors", etc.."

>> We all know that this is the obvious central theme of "The Wizard of Oz"...that all the characters already possessed the qualities that they were seeking.

that might have been one of the themes..but for the most part..the wizard of oz was a political allegory of the 1896 election...

>> Oz never did give nothin' to the Tin Man, that he didn't, didn't already have.

a quadruple negative.. prolly unique...maybe thats why its considered a classic...

>> After that I simply built a collage of word pictures that really did not fit together, but helped create a visual effect..."spinnin' round, smoke, glass, stained bright colors", etc.."

maybe that line has a visual effect..but that still doesnt explain ..

And Cause never was a reason for the evening
Or the Tropic of Sir Galahad


they must have done alot of coke when they did that song...the title might even be a reference to some paraphernalia used to ingest the cocaine...
