How Can I Keep From Swinging? (Craig Johnson) Our life flows on, an endless song Of tedium and frustration. With love grown old, and sex grown cold What's left for recreation? And so we slumber by the tube, But..Hark! The doorbell's ringing It's Bob and Sal and Ted and Sue.. How can we keep from swinging? We'll take a drink to loosen up And have some conversation, Then intermingle on the floor And practise fornication. So you grab mine and I'll take yours While Manilow is singing By Golly! Did I lock the doors? How can we keep from swinging? Since these new friends have come our way Our lifestyle's been most frightening; Mazola parties every day, And Kama Sutras nightly. There's videos and Polaroids While lingerie we're flinging... Creative use of chocolate fudge How can we keep from swinging? So you do mine and I'll do yours, And we'll do one another. Why not invite the folks nest door? And likewise Dad and Mother? And when the months have passed away And we're left sore and stinging, We'll wish Aunt Mabel hadn't come.. How can we keep from swinging? from Bill Day's singing RG
