Cloak and Dagger

lyrics by Jeremy Kidd, music by Hal Lewis

Baby's in the circus now,
Touring in the sticks,
Left me in the city,
And went to look for kicks.

I'm walking the pavement,
Watching the stars,
Caught in the headlights,
Of the passing cars.

The sun don't shine for me now,
The rose don't bloom, no, no, no,
Since my baby left me,
The sun don't shine no more.

I thought we had a good thing,
A love as safe as houses,
I always kept my shoes shined,
And creases in my trousers.

What did she see,
To make her leave me?
I'm in the dark.

The sun don't shine for me now,
The rose don't bloom, no, no, no,
Since my baby left me,
The sun don't shine no more.

I believe in honesty,
Sweetness, light and reason,
I don't believe in lechery,
In lying, spite and treason.

Here I am on bended knee,
And armed against these vices,
All alone, heartbroken,
Left to my own devices.

The sun don't shine for me now,
The rose don't bloom, no, no, no,
Since my baby left me,
The sun don't shine no more.

Cloak and Dagger quotes...

This was always a hard song to pin down at the time, but when I listen to it now I think it sounds great. Especially the swirling Hammond stuff that Danny Wood did for us over the outro.   Hal

I think John and Jerry always saw this as a filler, but Lou, Hal and I loved it, especially live. The backing vocals became a pure piss-take in the end.   Matt

This was always fun to play live. Me and Matt used to really ham it up.   Lou
