Flamboyance

gregg connolly 1956 (pennsylvania)



WOW, WOW, WOW, Got to get it
I’ll look so cool, I’ll look so electric
My head will be the center of all attentions
Whatever the room, it will relieve all tensions
I’ll take the Orange Hat Sir, I’ll be so pretentious

I wear it out and WOW-O-WOW,
Everyone asked me to take a bow
The Orange hat has it’s awakening power,
It stirs the spirits in everyone’s tower

Oh my god look at that, an Orange coat, quite a twill
My orange hat jumps off my head, now I’ll be dressed to kill.
With a electric blue shirt, silken vest and neon purple tie
I head out into the night, I am the light of day in everyone’s eye
