The Song Goes On

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

Hound and the kitty walked hand in hand
A full moon giddy and slick
Washed upon the Koconino sand
When out of the shadows there flew a brick
Kitty declared undying love
The mouse wound up in jail
Hound rolled in at ten to six
With lipstick on his tail

The song goes on
The song goes on
All night long
The song goes on

Thigh bone said to shin bone
Meet me at the knees
We'll find someone to kick around
And something sweet to squeeze
Let's go down to lonesome town
And boogie till we die
Find someone to follow you down
Or find someone to try

The song goes on
The song goes on
All night long
The song goes on

She cried catch me if you can
And ran ahead full speed
I was crushed in several pieces
In my heart if not in deed
I don't know where I got off
In attempting to get on
The Queen of Wild Horses
Who was pulling up the dawn

The song goes on
The song goes on
All night long
The song goes on

Standing by the riverside
We shall not be moved
Until the situation is
Very much improved
The song goes on and on and on
And on and on and on
From Gypsy campfire's midnight
Golden earrings until dawn

The song goes on
The song goes on
All night long
The song goes on

Hearts are made for breaking
Tears made to be shed
Faith is made for shaking
Children to be fed
If there is no encore
Relax and let it be
The song goes on, that I know
The rest I must believe

The song goes on
The song goes on
All night long
The song goes on

The song goes on
The song goes on
All night long
The song goes on
