The Fox and The Pearl (feat. Melvin Knight)

from The Manhattan Slide and Other Songs for Dream Dancing by Mr. and Mrs. Muffins

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    A beautiful vinyl package that features four pages of liner notes, lyrics, and credits, as well as four different album covers that can be changed to fit the listener's mood. Pressed on classic black vinyl.

    Sadly, production has been delayed, and estimated shipping has changed to mid-July. We are very sorry for this. Unfortunately, the world of vinyl is very backed up these days.

lyrics

Mama used to say, “Boy, hold your head up high.
Up high!
It’d give them too much joy to let them see you run
And cry.

Darlin’ think where you want to be
(Baby, don’t let them steal your smile)
And take this pearl from me
In the end it’ll set you free.”

“When the fox needs a ‘pick-me up’ he puts you down
He’s trying to turn your smile to a frown
But he’s the clown
So hang on to your roots and hold on tight
It’s a long, hard ride

So, think where you wanna be
(Baby, don’t them steal your smile)
And take this pearl from me
In the end it’ll set you free”

Mama used to say, “Boy, hold your head up high.
Up high!”
