Bella Belle about this girl named Bella Belle who is soft and smooth like caramel. The boys all love Bella Belle. However this girl named Bella Belle is trouble.

Here is the storyline of the song from the third person point of view/third-person narrative.

A man is on the train to see and visualize how it’s all the same. He is looking out the window pane. And then sees amongst the gray and rain.

He thinks about his wife again. He can smell her cooking. He longs for that woman’s cooking. But then he sees a foot and a leg of another girl. He feels attracted as he scrambles like a scrambled egg. She walks by his seat. He wants to weep and beg. This girl is lookin’ good!

She dropped her lipstick on the floor. Her lipstick rolled along the corridor. She now heads for the bathroom door. He follows her blindly to the women’s bathroom. He knocked upon the pearly gate. Before you know it, it’s too late as this girl knocked his teeth out for following her to the women’s bathroom. She thinks he is a pervert. He took the apple and ate a big ol’ bite!

He now falls in love with her. So he introduces himself to her. This girl said her name was Bella Belle. She was soft and smooth like caramel. However this girl named Bella Belle is trouble. Can you tell? And one by one the boys all yell, “Let me be ya fella ’cause you’re looking mighty swell, Belle”

She’s so sweet enough to eat. He has a fetish for her feet. He was incomplete without her. You can tell he loves her dearly. But he knows she’s all alone. She never nags and she never moans. Bella Belle tells the man he is her precious stone.

He shines up nice! Now they married under the apple tree. You’re sure you’re who you wanna be? But now it’s on. He feels so guilty about being married to her. He wishes he could resign away and not have gotten married to her. Or find a way to hide away. He knows the little runaway has strangled him.

A woman tells a man that she is in love with him. She wants to kiss him when they dance together. She asks him to take her in his arms and to at her when he dances with her. You can tell clearly she loves him with all her heart. It’s a divine love.

The woman tells the man, “Darling, I think I love you with all my heart when you dance with me. Darling, I think I love you with all my heart. I want to kiss you now when you dance with me. My friend, take me in your arms and look at me when you dance with me.”

Harvey is about man named Harvey who works in the circus. He makes the magic happen with animals.

Harvey works in the shadows. He waits in the wings. Miracle make and the magic begins beneath a lamppost as he beckons you near with a furry white claw and magnificent ears. It might be a bat or a rhinoceros. Maybe a horse or a pet octopus. But I think it’s rather convenient to find a friend in the circus of your mind. What will you do when he comes for you? What will you do when that pooka chooses you? So don’t be afraid to follow his lead. He’ll show you the ropes of our reality. He ain’t gonna hurt you. Not in the least. So a toast to a most benevolent beast.

So, here’s to you, Harvey. Raise a glass to old Harvey. The weaver of dreams. The stopper of clocks. The unpicker of seams.

Where will I be when he comes for me? What will I see when that pooka chooses me? Don’t be scared of ghosts in the night. Lap it all up with delicious delight. An ocean of time where we can run free. In our grand fantasy.

So fellas, if you’re ready, grab your gal by the hand. It’s grand. So get ready to swing. Swing it nice and swing it free. Welcome to Electric Swing Circus swingin’ show.

The Penniless Optimist is about a man who travelled far and wide. The Penniless Optimist is a man who’s got his soul but no money to his name.

Ladies and gentlemen. I present to you a man who has travelled far and wide. He might not have a shilling to his name. But he has a song in his heart. He is the penniless optimist. This man has got no carriage but he’s got his song. He’s got no money but he’s got his soul. He’s got no silver to his name. Basically he’s got nothing but he’s got his soul.

Minnie is a modern take on the jazz classic Cab Calloway – Minnie the Moocher. However the lyrics are altered. This is because Electric Swing Circus used their own lyrics for the song. You heard the story. Now this is the song.

Folks, here’s a story ’bout Minnie the Moocher. She was a red-hot hoochie-coocher. She was the roughest and toughest frail. But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale. She was a good girl but men have done her wrong. Now they took away. They put the crazies. Now poor Minnie is kickin’ up them daisies. She was a good girl but they’ve done her wrong.

Put Your Smile On is about a woman not being able to find the perfect guy. There is not enough time for this man and woman to make their relationship work because the romantic possibilities were strangled at birth.

There is not enough time for this man and woman to make their relationship work despite the romantic possibilities. The romantic possibilities were strangled at birth. Now he tells her that he want her. That only makes it worse. There’s nothing she can do.

He accepts the sacrifice. Like a chocolate pie as she gobble sit up. However the woman finds out it tastes like a lie. Later she is in the kitchen with a bottle of wine to drink away her sorrows.

Her mother tells her to put her lipstick and smile on as she has to dance to the rhythm in order to sing the song. Her mother asks her, “What happened to the perfect guy? Now put your lipstick on. Now put your smile on. You gotta dance to the rhythm. Gotta sing to the song.”

She sees his face the moment that they climb up the stage. Yet she feel the sadness welling up. So she brushes the sadness away. They smile and dance to music to help to soothe their pain. But her head and heart keep spinning in the mess they made. Dancing is addicting. Her nicotine distracts her from everything that’s hurting her.

Her man later tells her, “I’m sorry that I wasn’t who you’d thought I’d be. I’m sorry that you thought that you could count on me.”

Ruby is a short acoustic electro swing song which is backed by a guitar and lively horns. This song is one of their lesser known songs.

Little Phatty is an upbeat electro swing song that uses a handful of breakbeats over modern electronic production. This Electric Swing Circus son is quite different as most Electric Swing Circus don’t use breakbeats. Electronic house meets jazz on the song Little Phatty.

Here in the jungle I can be so free. Holding the papayas from the papaya tree. So bounce with me to the bongo beat. Deep in the jungle is where I wanna be! When the music starts to play.You got to swing then you got to sway. You got to swing from the jungle from tree to tree. Swing your hips and tap your feet to that jungle beat and now bounce right back to that jungle beat.

Everybody Wants To Be A Cat is about how everyone wants to be that cool person that knows what’s hip and trendy.

Everybody wants to be a cat because a cat’s the only cat who knows where it’s at. Everybody’s pickin’ up on that feline beat because everything else is obsolete. You can set music back to the caveman days. Heard some corny birds trying to sing. But a cat’s the only cat who knows how to swing. Who knows where it’s at. When playing jazz he always has a well command because everybody needs a swinging cat.

I rate this album 5/5*****!!
