Giraffes & Sparkle

Well, neither one of us could get ROCKET out of our heads or off the vocal and guitar chords so we kept on with the call to write some more songs in the same fashion and sat down to do so a couple weeks later, this time in Nashville, TN. We sat around a round, wooden kitchen table talking about giraffes and planets and science and Einstein which soon became the second song in this song series, HOW'D YOU GET THAT SPARKLE IN YOUR EYE.

...I read that giraffes got their long long necks from their granddaddy's granddaddy. The ones that ate the best were the ones that learned to stretch so they could reach the highest leaves. If the earth was only seen from high in the sky no doubt it would seem to be quite frozen. But we know underneath the mountains that we climb, all those plates are in motion. Despite all the knowledge we've gained, theres just one thing that can't be explained. How'd you get that sparkle in your eye? It would put old Einstein's mind in a bind. I don't know where else to look but it sure aint in no science book. How'd you get that sparkle in your eye?...
