bruce ! a bit of nostalgia (plus lyrics)

I remember loving this album when it first came out. I played it over and over and over and .... you get the picture. With all that play time, I realized that the lyrics of the album weren't written by a happily married man ( at the time to some beautiful actress), but a man who has fallen in love with someone else ......... watching MTV clued me in: the red headed back up singer. Yep. Months later, my suspicions were confirmed by the tabloids. Chalk one up for rdg. Ha. As far as I know Bruce and his lady are still together .... but I've long given up MTV and tabloid reading ...... riiiigghhtt. Enjoy the ride.

Fat man sitting on a little stool
Takes the money from my hand while his eyes take a walk all over you
Hands me the ticket smiles and whispers good luck
Cuddle up angel cuddle up my little dove
Well ride down baby into this tunnel of love

I can feel the soft silk of your blouse
And them soft thrills in our little fun house
Then the lights go out and it's just the three of us
You me and all that stuff we're so scared of
Gotta ride down baby into this tunnel of love

There's a crazy mirror showing us both in 5-d
Im laughing at you you're laughing at me
There's a room of shadows that gets so dark brother
Its easy for two people to lose each other in this tunnel of love

It ought to be easy ought to be simple enough
Man meets woman and they fall in love
But the house is haunted and the ride gets rough
And you've got to learn to live with what you can't rise above if you want to ride on down in through this tunnel of love
