Sweep the Leg, Jonny

from ApriltoApril by limesix



I knew the name of this song came from somewhere, but I honestly couldn't remember where. I just had the line in my head and the rest of the lyrics and the bass melody spun from it.

About the song:
There are people who love you as much as you love them, and people who love you less than you love them, and people who love you a lot more than you love them. I think most songs are about the first two categories, this one is about the third.


You'll never find someone who cares this much about you.
I spend all my time just making sure that is true.

Sweep the leg, Jonny.
Figure out just what is what.

Just the other day I came over right when you called.
It's the little things that sometimes mean nothing at all.

Sweep the leg, Jonny.
I know someday you will deserve it.

And only I know what you want or what you need.
The others they don't understand you.
That you give them the time of day makes my hair stand on end,
and I don't know what to do.

I can overlook the many ways you're letting me down.
But it's almost the same as if you were watching me drown.

Sweep the leg, Jonny.
I think you might as well.

And if this is the end,
I don't have time for it.

I only have time for you.
