An electro swing original from Sepiatonic inspired by a March Fourth Marching Band dancer named Polly Pepper. Polly can be seen co-starring in the music video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=079D8GqrP3w&list=PLmAvYayENdOhafNSkHQU8BemAvpKx2WXd


She came to town on a bicycle
On the second day of May
She wore leather boots
And her birthday suit
And to me she looked okay!

Well I sat beside her,
And I drank my cider
And I said “Hey what’s your name?”
She smiled so wide,
I just jumped inside
And I never come out the same



When she dances it’s like thunder


But there’s lightening in her step


Pretty Polly Pepper
Do you think you’d ever
Hang around
A hand-me-down like me?

Well her i’s are dotted and her t’s are crossed,
She’s the prettiest gal I ever lost.
Good golly, Polly, you’re the one for me!


Well I traveled near, and I traveled far
And I traveled in between
But every prince I met would only make me miss my queen.

So I rambled back
To that scrambled shack
Where I knew that I would say
"Oh Polly dear, I'm back I fear, to dance the night away"
