Song of the Day – “Queen of the World” – The Jayhawks
May 21, 2016 Leave a comment
A jangly Gary Louris-penned tune from the 2000 release Smile.
Just a face among the crowd
Another ship upon the sea of sweet confusion
Standin’ on your toes
While your jewelry was swayin’ to the music
You are a rose among the reeds
And you’re the only one I’ll ever need
And when I look into your eyes
I know that you will
Take me to a place I never go
You send me kisses made of gold
I’ll place a crown upon your curls
All hail the queen of the world
Reminds me of my wife.
