Saint Ampersand

Words and music by Bill Price

I'm holding on to my ampersand
Won't let it slip through my understanding
It's the holy conjunction known as And
Better get used to him - he's the man - Saint Ampersand

We need mind and we need heart
We need business and we need art
Life would be such a bore
If it was always either or
We need white all the way to black
Sometimes we need a surgeon - sometimes we need a hack

We wander left - we wander right
Sometimes it's day - at times there ain't no light
Sometimes it's solo - sometimes a band
Sometimes you want quiet - sometimes you just wanna jam
Saint Ampersand

I'm holding on to my ampersand
Won't let it slip through my understanding
It's the holy conjunction known as And
Better get used to him - he's the man - Saint Ampersand

Sometimes religion - sometimes science
Sometimes flight - sometimes strong defiance
Sometimes fiction - sometimes fact
Sometimes it's love - sometimes it don't come back
Sometimes comic books - sometimes Macbeth
Sometimes life - sometimes one last breath

Sometimes a helping hand - sometimes a fist
Sometimes you do the waltz - sometimes you do the twist
Sometimes sea - sometimes sand
It's not either or - it's both and
Saint Ampersand

I'm holding on to my ampersand
Won't let it slip through my understanding
It's the holy conjunction known as And
Better get used to him - he's the man - Saint Ampersand
