Michael Johnson - Mr. Arthur's Place (Slide With Me Julia)
Mr. Arthur's place is set about a mile just off the interstate highway And it's kinda hard to get to so you really gotta know where to go And it's there you'll hear the music they played before the children were children How the sound and the spirit sets you swinging as you step through the door And they show you to a table, you have a drink or two You ask her if she wants to dance, she says it's up to you So you take her by the hand and you lead her to the edge of the dance floor And she whispers to you, "Honey I'm afraid my gown's a little too long" You get into the rhythm and remember what it was that you came for You forget the thirty years that have happened since they played you that song And as you twirl around the room, you no longer feel a fool It's just the way it used to be when she was your girl at school Slide with me, Julia I can lead if you will follow through Glide with me, Julia To see the simple pleasure we once knew Just to see the simple pleasure we once knew You've had one terrific evening and you tell her as you drive down the highway She says, "Yes I really loved it and you know we gotta go there again" But you get that empty feeling as you pull the car back into your driveway You know exactly where you are but you're not too sure where you've been As you turn out the bedroom light, you have a word or two You ask her if she wants to sleep, she says it's up to you Slide with me, Julia I can lead if you will follow through Glide with me, Julia To see the simple pleasure we once knew Just to see the simple pleasure we once knew
