5. Getting Smaller Blues

(Greg Bond)
September 20, 1999
I don't know what's come over me
I don't feel right at all
It must have been the piece of cake
That Alice gave me this morning
I'm feeling just a bit small

I'm walking down a corridor
Where the doors have disappeared
The floor has vanished from
Beneath my feet
I know I'm falling,
I don't know where
CHORUS
I'm looking for someone to save me
It doesn't have to be that way
A little love would lift me up
And away ... But I get smaller,
Smaller, smaller smaller.

It's getting so my pants won't fit
I need a new notch on my belt.
It's getting so the neighbors dog
Can push me around
If only he knew just how I felt

A little love would lift me up
So I won't feel mean and low.
A man needs a woman he can relate to
And then by giving, begin to grow.
Repeat chorus

Hello there! Is anybody listening
To each other tonight?
Hello there! Does anybody understand
What is happening tonight?
Hello there! Does anybody realize
There's a madman sitting
In the seat right next to you?

Repeat CHORUS

He's looking for someone to save him
It doesn't have to be that way.
A little love would lift him up
I said, a little love could lift me up
You know, a little love could lift me up
And away ... when I get smaller.

I don't know what you take me for
I guess that's up to you.
Babe I'm fallin' for ya
Day by day. I might fade away.
Smaller, smaller, smaller, smaller.
