The Lyrics

(andalusite)(n.) A silicate of aluminium, occurring usually in thick rhombic prisms, nearly square, of a grayish or pale reddish tint
Got up on the rooftop, having some sun, sir.
'Fraid this ivory skin will be red.
Poor me, looked andalusite. Aah.

Got up on the rooftop, having some shade, sir.
So that my ivory skin won't be red.
Poor me, the isle of the white. Aah.

I walk and I talk, like a 'bot with rust believe me.
Ailing, I am, I wonder what the degree.
Poor me, looked andalusite. Aah.

"Shirt them a-tear up, trousers are gone."
I don't want no clothes to strike upon my hide.
Poor me, the isle of the white. Aah.

My skin's too warm there must be a balm.
They patch me in the arm. I won't buy the farm.
Poor me, looked andalusite. Aah.

Poor me, the isle of the white.
I wonder if I'll shed some more.
Poor me, andalusite.
"I look a-down and out, sir."

Very well done.
Excellent line!
My skin's too warm there must be a balm.
Must be 5s on this one. I did one myself on this and can appreciate the complexity to get a good one on this difficult song.

I waited a bit for the dust to settle. Thank you for offering your moral support. I learned a few importiant lessons about messageboards. There's bound to be spam in an open forum . Best thing to do is report it and be done with it. That old saying " Sticks & Stones......
