Lyrics 

Blue-jean baby

L.A. lady

Seamstress for the band

Pretty-eyed

Pirate smile

You’ll marry a music man

Ballerina

You must’ve seen her

Dancing in the sand

And now she’s in me

Always with me

Tiny dancer in my hand

Jesus freaks

Out in the street

Handing tickets out for God

Turning back

She just laughs

The boulevard is not that bad

Piano man

He makes his stand

In the auditorium

Looking on

She sings the songs

The words she knows

The tune she hums

But oh, how it feels so real

Lying here, with no one near

Only you and you can hear me

When I say softly, slowly

Hold me closer, tiny dancer

Count the headlights on the highway

Lay me down in sheets of linen

You had a busy day today

Hold me closer, tiny dancer

Count the headlights on the highway

Lay me down in sheets of linen

You had a busy day today

Blue-jean baby

L.A. Lady

Seamstress for the band

Pretty-eyed

Pirate smile

You’ll marry a music man

Ballerina

You must have seen her

Dancing in the sand

Now she’s in me

Always with me

Tiny dancer in my hand

Oh, oh, how it feels so real

Lying here, with no one near

Only you, and you can hear me

When I say softly, slowly

Hold me closer, tiny dancer

Count the headlights on the highway

Lay me down in sheets of linen

You had a busy day today

Hold me closer, tiny dancer

Count the headlights on the highway

Lay me down in sheets of linen

You had a busy day today
