The Lyrics

Spinal Tap takes credit for the name of this song, and I certainly recommend a listen to their original heavy metal take. But I always thought this Christopher Cross song would make a nice parody candidate for the title, so here it tis..
This is a song about a break dancer.
No, really it is.
Break dance tonight
My body speaks
Beat box of one
Make people weep
I’ve got to break
Break like the wind
See me spin again.

When I’m hot see the air softly glow
I start off very slowly then let it go
Then I’ll break like the wind.
Break like the wind

When the moon is come
I’m a cheeky man
See my moves so fine
Repertoire will expand
Eyes will cry
Knees will bend
Break like the wind.

And my crowd seems to move with the flow
Some fallin’ like the walls in ol’ Jericho
And I’ll break like the wind.
Break like the wind.

Footloose and fly
I’m twirly thang
I move the air at night
Sonic boom brings bang
Leavin’ them behind
To breezes I let go
Break like the wind
Rapport from below

Smoke in the night
Hear thunder beat
Spinnin’ the bum
Body will squeak
I’ve got to break
Break like the wind
Feel release again

And my dance is a glimpse of my soul
Though many think the act slightly overblown
But I’ll break like the wind
Break like the wind

Now I’m not such a bad guy to know
They say I’m quite a gas down in Tokyo
When I break like the wind
Break like the wind.

Warren - Nicely done! Don't take a "break" from us too often. ;D

Thanks, OMR. I was hoping for more comments, but I guess my song didn't sound the right note. Maybe I should have gassed it up a little more. Sigh...guess I'll just take some Rolaids and start airing out a new parody.
