52 Still Upright Album: 09. Sister Senorita
Lyrics
SISTER SENORITA
2014 Starburst/Bobby Sahlen updated 2-23-14

Way back in time, what's yours is mine, the Ferris wheel moves on
Contain the wind, bring youth again, anachronistic dawn
I'm seventeen when knowledge gleans the mysteries of the soul
Way back again when time begins to teach me how to know

(CHORUS)
SISTER SENORITA SING YOUR HALF NOTE MELODY
PROMISING THE WONDERS OF FULL SCALE FALLACY
VACATION FROM THE COMMONPLACE, ESCAPING TO THE PURE
SISTER SENORITA COMES A MARCHING WITH THE CURE

One for papa, one for mamma one for Sally Mae
Share the vision overload come the light of day
Fate's a monstrous undertow, both evil and divine
Sticking with the program may not pass the brush with time

(CHORUS)
SISTER SENORITA SING YOUR HALF NOTE MELODY
PROMISING THE WONDERS OF FULL SCALE FALLACY
VACATION FROM THE COMMONPLACE, ESCAPING TO THE PURE
SISTER SENORITA COMES A MARCHING WITH THE CURE

(BRIDGE)
Hold me steady on my feet its life that's rushing by
Ever ready elegance a kiss and then goodbye

(CHORUS)
SISTER SENORITA SING YOUR HALF NOTE MELODY
PROMISING THE WONDERS OF FULL SCALE FALLACY
VACATION FROM THE COMMONPLACE, ESCAPING TO THE PURE
SISTER SENORITA COMES A MARCHING WITH THE CURE
SISTER SENORITA ........THE CURE
Short Song Description:
Long Song Description:
In this song the words "Sister Senorita" is code language or a metaphor for whatever it is in life that enables us to find the strength to make it through pain and suffering. For some its alcohol, for some its drugs, for some it's indiscriminate sex, for some its religion. Doesn't matter, really. For centuries philosophers and learned men have described the "human condition" as one of suffering. There's a famous quote by Woody Allen, I think, to the effect of life being a long journey through pain interspersed with occasional fleeting moments of happiness.
