Dance the Blues (live iPhone recording)
Sean Oshima travels and experiences being the outsider. For Malcolm Brooks, Sean could be recounting Malcolm’s daily state.
 
Went to a concert on the Bayou
I could feel the bass but not the song
Felt like a stranger in the crowd I did not belong
 
Saw people swimming in the Bayou
Floating on rafts and makeshift canoes
I watched from afar and, I bet, they can dance the blues
 
I bet they all can dance the blues,
If I could I’d be okay
Wish that I could dance the blues that way
 
I ride to a mansion on the Bayou
Never had a gin and tonic so strong
Felt like a stranger in the crowd, am I doing something wrong?
 
Danced with a woman in dark red
I look as if I’m doing fine
I talk with another ’bout Pennsylvania, faking a good time
 
I bet they all can dance the blues,
If I could I’d be okay
Wish that I could dance the blues that way
 
Oh, oh, oh, oh….
 
Think I’ll go to Greece or somewhere
Far from New Orleans and the Bayou
Where nobody even wonders if I dance the blues
 
I bet they all can dance the blues,
If I could I’d be okay
Wish that I could dance the blues that way
