Strike It While It’s Hot [featuring Bette Midler and Dan Hicks]

Do do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do do

D: When that pictcher gets off a curve ball,
B: does that mean that there wasn’t no ball at all?
When the preacher catches you asleep,
D: does that mean that you’re some kind of a creep?

D & B: You be standin’ on the corner
lookin’ like a stupid loner
waitin’ for a bus.
But the bus’ll pass you by
’cause you couldn’t catch its eye
and you can bite it’s dust.

B: And your week’s not all that it could be.
D & B: And you reach out for something so impatiently.
D: And your days turn into months on end.
B: It’s time to flip the page and to start up again.

D & B: Time to roll over, see what other tricks you got.
Time to move over, let the new guy take a shot.
Strike it while it’s hot ’cause later there might not
be any room for thought.

Do do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do

D: When the rain clouds pass and it stays dry, does that
D & B: mean that there wasn’t no clouds up in the sky?
B: And when the rain comes back and it pours good,
D & B: does that mean that you’ve finally understood?

So you wanna feed your belly
and you jump into the deli
lookin’ for a bite.
And you have a close encounter
with somebody at the counter
lookin’ for a fight.

B: When that store runs all out of your size,
D & B: does that rocket your plans up into other skies?
And what’s the combination of the latest compilation?
Does it need interpretation to avoid a reputation?
D: Or can we simplify and make it work?

D & B: Time to roll over, see what other tricks you got.
Time to move over, let the new guy take a shot.
Strike it while it’s hot ’cause later there might not
be any room for thought.

D: So you jump back in and play some more.
And you’re breakin’ all records that have gone before.
B: And you’ve turned yourself a one-eighty.
Does that mean that your eyes are lookin’ backwardly?

D: So you’d like to turn around
and see the other side of town
but it’s not easy.
B: No, no, no. And everytime you look
it seems that they took
away the scenery. Ooooh,
D & B: It’s a view that you’re not quite used to.
But since when did that ever seem to bother you?

Time to roll over, see what other tricks you got.
Time to move over, let the new guy take a shot.
Strike it while it’s hot ’cause later there might not
be any room for thought.
Strike it while it’s hot.
Strike it while it’s hot!
