Aimee Mann - Slip And Roll Lyrics




You went from moonlighting
but you came out fighting
I saw you larger than life
throwing your knife
gone into deep hiding

But you were so charming
that it was disarming
I wondered what was behind
having to find
an army that keeps arming

Oh, Slip and roll, honey
stick the jab, kid
don‘t just trade punches
like your father did
cause this playing the odds
isn’t fooling the gods
so slip and roll til you’re willing to take the hit

So we just keep hoping
although the deck’s sloping
you’re thinking, Throw me a bone
or leave me alone
to do what they call coping

Oh, Slip and roll, honey
stick the jab, kid
don‘t just trade punches
like your father did
cause this playing the odds
isn’t fooling the gods
so slip and roll til you’re willing to take the hit

And you can take it, take it, take it, take it
we’ve all seen that guy take it on the chin
oh, take it, take it, I know you can take it
but when will you take something in

Oh, Slip and roll, honey
stick the jab, kid
don‘t just trade punches
like your father did
cause this playing the odds
isn’t fooling the gods
so slip and roll til you’re willing to take the hit

And you can take it, take it, take it, take it
we’ve all seen that guy take it on the chin
oh, take it, take it, I know you can take it
but when will you take something in
when will you take something in

    You went from moonlighting
    but you came out fighting
    I saw you larger than life
    throwing your knife
    gone into deep hiding

    But you were so charming
    that it was disarming
    I wondered what was behind
    having to find
    an army that keeps arming

    Oh, Slip and roll, honey
    stick the jab, kid
    don‘t just trade punches
    like your father did
    cause this playing the odds
    isn’t fooling the gods
    so slip and roll til you’re willing to take the hit

    So we just keep hoping
    although the deck’s sloping
    you’re thinking, Throw me a bone
    or leave me alone
    to do what they call coping

    Oh, Slip and roll, honey

    don‘t just trade punches
    like your father did

  9. Israel Boone

    She has a Joni Mitchell sound

  10. John Doe

    Your autism is really quite astonishing, this is her official channel.

  11. Iago B

    A true fan buys twice? I hope you're kidding... :D really do.

  12. ValeAndThe13thConfes

    Bloody true...
    If you want to know what they did to Aimee with all of this piracy, see the video named "Portlandia: Aimee Mann". Poor Aimee! Poor Sarah McLachlan!!

  13. lfuentes515

    Most artists that are part of this whole anti-piracy thing have not adjusted to the times. The only reason I heard about Aimee Mann and ended up buying her vinyl is because: 1. The music does not suck 2. Free media allowed me to listen to it before buying it. The 2nd point is what artists are against and is also what most likely than not decides whether a new listener, like myself, becomes a fan.

  14. James Lovitt

    good for you, do you realize how much you are stealing from her??

  15. James Lovitt

    if you were a true fan you would buy the album twice and not post this on youtube, it;s depressing she is getting nothing for your free posts

  16. paperbacknovel

    Over the top. The melody.

  17. Manny Luis
