I'm On A Roll

This song is by Over the Rhine and appears on the album The Trumpet Child (2007) and on the live album Live From Nowhere Volume Three (2008).

Black flamenco shoes
Dahlias in my hair
Garters on my stockings
The sidewalk bends to stare
I'm on a roll
I'm on a roll

Ambition may be blind
Diamonds come from coal
You provide the rhythm babe
And I'll provide the soul
I'm on a roll
I'm on a roll

This oyster is my world
My oyster's got a pearl
This ain't no dress rehearsal
I'm a very lucky girl
I'm on a roll
I'm on a roll

Tastes sweet on my lips
Tender on my tongue
All the road's ahead of me
Oh the night is young
I'm on a roll
I'm on a roll

I'm on a roll
Just like I oughta
I'm on a roll
I can't be bothered
I'm on a roll
I want the whole enchilada
I'm on a roll

Baby's got his bullhorn
Confetti's in the air
We're shakin' up Show Ponies
'Cause we haven't got a care
I'm on a roll
I'm on a roll

I'm on a roll
Just like I oughta
I'm on a roll
I can't be bothered
I'm on a roll
Cincinnati to Ensenada
I'm on a roll
From the thrift store to Prada
I'm on a roll
La de dah dah de dah dah
I'm on a roll
La la la dah de dah dah
I'm on a roll
