lyrics

When Dean Martin crossed Jerry Lewis the martinis were dry
Unlike the kiss she blew us at the Sapphire last night

Six silver bullets ring out across the Nevada sky
Death Valley never seemed so alive
Tone slingers and tone deaf singers on a return Delta flight
She’s in for some drama tonight

When Dean Martin crossed Jerry Lewis the martinis were dry
Unlike the kiss she blew us at the Sapphire last night

Clark County Fire Department on a Sunday Afternoon
And Everybody’s hanging at the pool
All except for Britney, she’s down at the Double Down Saloon
She’s looking cute through the eyes of this sun stroked fool

And the palm trees remind me of Christmas on Mars
The real mountains behind Macy’s are no distractions from the cards and the fake stars

Well, look who just checked into the Flamingo Inn
With a blank slate and a new respect for gin

When Dean Martin crossed Jerry Lewis the martinis were dry
Unlike the kiss she blew us at the Sapphire last night
When Dean Martin crossed Jerry Lewis
When Dean Martin crossed Jerry Lewis

about

the james clark institute Toronto, Ontario

With a wink and a nod to the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry in Toronto (now CAMH), The James Clark Institute is the musical guise for singer and songwriter James Clark. Confronting the ghosts of his past, James spins his personal demons into witty, well-crafted pop-folk/rock tunes.

His writing is inspired by the works of Ray Davies, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan and Michael Nesmith to name a few.
