Lyrics


Sasha sashayed through our lives and our days, and not a soul had a clue
Ain’t it amazing what a swish of the hips will do?

Though all the boys wanted to touch her, they were too mystified to talk
But they bragged about what they’d done with her anyway
While nobody believed each other’s stories, they relived them each night in solitary glory
And by day froze like deer at the hint of her headlights
They’d hold their breath with panicked hearts
Yearning for a brush of skin as she slunk by
And just the thought of her lit them up from the inside

Sasha sashayed through our lives and our days, and not a soul had a clue
Ain’t it amazing what a flick of the wrist can do?

Though all the girls wanted to be her, we wouldn’t be caught dead with her
‘Cause who’d want to hang with that tramp anyway?
While nobody had met a friend of hers, we knew they must all be trés glamorous
So we scowled in her shadow, wordlessly praying for acceptance
We’d hold our breath with jealous hearts
Wishing her magic might rub off on us as she skulked by
And just a word from her lit us up from the inside

Sasha sashayed through our lives and our days, and not a soul had a clue
Ain’t it amazing what a lick of the lips can do?

Though all the men wanted to own her, they were afraid to be alone with her
But she could be their mid-life crisis any day!
Nobody ever figured out where she lived, but many dogs were walked where they thought she did
As they orbited ‘round her oblivious sun
They’d hold their breath with guilty hearts
Praying for some inner strength if she swayed by
And just one glance from her lit them up from the inside

Sasha sashayed through our lives and our days, and not a soul had a clue
Ain’t it amazing what two fluttering lids will do?

Though all the women wanted to protect her, they knew she was a threat
‘Cause what sort of men wouldn’t prefer her to them anyway?
Nobody knew anything for sure, but her eyes said she’d had a lot to endure
So they all gathered ‘round to shelter her flame from the wind
They’d hold their breath with conflicted hearts
Hoping they could be of help if she stopped by
And just one grateful smile lit them up from the inside

Sasha sashayed through our lives and our days, and not a soul had a clue
Ain’t it amazing what a little mystery will do?
