Lyrics: Dave Matthews Band – Alligator Pie

More lyrics from the new Dave Matthews Band album Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King. Stella and Grace are the names of Dave’s twin daughters.

Alligator Pie:
Floating in the lower nine
Waiting for a boat to throw me a line
See my Stella smile
Sitting on the roof eating alligator pie
First day the water rise
Second day the sun is high
Third day Stella cried cause night times dark as a dead man’s eye’s

Tell me when is help gonna come
Stella said daddy when you gonna put me in a song?

Morning ride on by thank lord everybody’s alright
Don’t mean to throw us a second line
The devil left us here to die

Stella said daddy when you gonna put me in a song?

All the things we know and
Everything we hoped for
All the things we wanted
Everything that was sure
Now there is a scar
Where the old men used to be
The corner store and market
Where Stella used to sing to me

Grace is all I’m asking
When will grace return

Remember how I feel in those days of the summertime
Then Stella smiled
Stella said daddy when you gonna put me in a song?

Tell me lord when help is gonna come
Daddy when you gonna put me in a song?

And here’s another preview video with a clip of ‘Shake Me Like a Monkey’:
