Sarasota Steamboat Farewell

Lyrics: David Nelson?
Music: David Nelson?

Played by the David Nelson Band in the late 1990s. I can't find any other trace of this song, and I assume it's an original.

You get nothing for nothing, that's what I learned
It's nada for nada at best, and the rest get burned
You don't go climbing the Golden Gate Bridge at night
You do what you do, and hope it turns out right
Tight shoes are bound to pinch, babe
That's a lead pipe cinch

Well it's nothing for nothing, it's about like that
If you tear out what's left of your hair, you'll have to borrow a hat
You don't have to sleep with everybody in town
To leave them with a smile turned upside down
They take a mile if you give an inch
That's a lead pipe cinch

I had a dream of Mexico
They did the tarantella oh so slow
I wish I could remember all that I heard said
While I was hiding down under your bed

I had a dream of Mexico
They did the tarantella oh so slow
I wish I could remember all that I heard said
While I was hiding down under your bed

Well it's nothing for nothing, you can bank on that
Sarasota Steamboat Farewell, and my regards to your cat
I'm just sitting at the bottom with the south side up
Just going through the motions, no it don't mean much
It covers me in the clinch, babe
That's a lead pipe cinch
They take a mile if you give an inch
That's a lead pipe cinch
