Tiny dancer
Two words
That strike a chord in the heart of every sensitive 32 year old man and
A song actually I don't think I'd ever heard until I saw... Almost Famous
So every night before going to bed, I thank Cameron Crowe
For... opening up a part of me that I don't think I ever knew... until now


Blue jean baby, LA lady
Seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smiled
You'll marry a music man

Ballerina
You must have seen her
Dancing in the sand
Now she's in me, always with me
The tiny dancer in my hand

You know let's skip all the other crap and just get to the chorus, like on that bus scene
What do you say?
Now, keep going, keep going, keep going, keep going
There you go
But you know what I really wanted to do, was I wanted to recreate that timeless scene in uh, Almost Famous
I wanted to do kind of like a performance art piece, where I'd have uh, a little kiddie pool and I'd jump in the kiddie pool
And then - on acid, and uh and then, then someone come and drape a towel on me
And then have uh, uh ya know, Craig come behind me and uh, sing along to the, to the song
But I think what I'm gonna need everybody to do
Is sing the chorus along so we can really recreate that magic
Right?
OK?
Now I'm gonna count, I'm gonna give you a four count
Hey this is my show!
Alright, here we go... One, two, three, four


Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

One more time, come on! Sing it like you mean it!

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

One more time!

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
This is so stupid
LA lady
Seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smiled
You'll marry a music man
Oh my God, it keeps going
Ballerina, you must have seen her
Dancing in the sand
Now she's in me, always with me
Tiny dancer, in my hand

Ok, the teleprompter stopped
So we gotta do the chorus one more time!
Two, three, four


Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

Oh yeah!
There you go
