A particularly appropriate lyric for NETT

In keeping with the poetry festival theme, here's a unique set of lyrics that grabbed my attention. Local rock legend Bill Janowitz's band Crown Victoria put this song out and it references our own Battle Road (he lives in Lexington these days).

One, Two, Three
By Bill Janowtiz

See the spotlight’s on her tawdry dresses on the bed beside the fire
She’s always kept her word, she’s not a liar
Walking down the Battle Road, the Lincoln woman’s family is not home
Oh, you’re beautiful you know
Oh, we beg you not to go
She probably drinks a glass a beer a thousand miles away from here
Or maybe she is underneath the sea
One, two, three, so easily
