Bob Schneider – “Let The Light In”

It always amazes me how you can listen to a song over and over and not really pay so much attention to the lyrics. I just realized how funny the storyline of this Bob Schneider tune is…

“Wicked witch of Cincinnati pulled out her old broom
Dusted off the spiders and cobwebs and used it
To fly on down to cleveland for the weekend
Cause she thought it would be time to do some freakin’.

And it’s been so long since she didn’t feel bad
Not spending all the time making people feel sad.
No more now she’s made up her mind
Put on that old dress and get herself looking real fine.
All up in the club drinking hennessey
Oh my what a mess I must confess that

All right! let your hair down
Let your heart pound
Let the light in let the light in
Let the light in let the light in
Let the light in let the light in
Let the light in again!

Well the lion and the tin man showed up at the spot
The wicked witch walked in said show me what you got!’
The lion ran for cover and the tin man didn’t move
That’s when the band started playing this groove and…

The next thing you know there was magic in the air
No one saw it coming it wasn’t too clear
And the tin man said I don’t know how to do this baby!
Maybe you could show me how… she said

All right! let your hair down
Let your heart pound
Let the light in let the light in
Let the light in let the light in
Let the light in let the light in
Let the light in again! 

And they danced in the darkness on the floor
And the world kept spinning round
Like it’s always done before
And all the people in club
Said they don’t make a pretty pair
But the tin man and the witch they didn’t care

No ’cause love don’t give a damn about what other people say
It does what it wants; it’s always been that way

That’s the way it was the way it will be again
Forever and ever amen”
