Mongrel Soul I keep saying it. Stu McLamb may be the best American songwriter of his generation. I dare ye to argue that.

The Capulets - Ontario


One evening in my home
Behind my attic door
I found a human bone
Dancing on the floor

He took me by the hand
Led me to his gramophone
Made just one demand
Play his favorite song

In stere- in stereo
Played very soft and
Slower than a winter’s tan
Scorch the bone
Baby roll them while you can

We delved in dire affairs
And I led him down the stairs
To meet my sweet Marie
Coming back from the mortuary

Her hair’s gold
Corpse has grown cold
Where we left it
Out in the back yard

It’s buried
Beneath the snow
In the foothills
Of Ontario

Oh the storm came up strong
Blew down the ceiling
While I was sleeping
Oh I was there all alone
But I don’t believe in
Any of those demons

Home at last, let the swallows ring true
My heart is black but it’s beating for you

Still buried beneath the snow
Let’s dig him dear
Have a dancing with a dancing bone
