Help me out folks, I can't find the words to this beautiful song anywhere. I do remember the chorus -

Old Smoothies, two old people on skates
sequenced septigenarians, doing their figure-eights
see how they glide 'round the arena, so serene and sublime
they have been the old smoothies for a long, long time.

Gee, I thought that one would be easy to find on the Web, but it isn't. I also thought it would be easy to find on my shelf - but it wasn't. guess it's time to reaorganize the CD shelves again.
Here goes:

OLD SMO0THIES
(Steve Goodman)
(Big Ears Music,Inc / Red Pajamas Masic,Inc ASCAP)

My grandfather used to take us
Down to the ice skatin' show,
At the hockey rink at the stadium,
When the Blackhawks were on the road.
We'd cheer for the clowns in their costumes,
And the beautifal figure ballet,
Of the former Olympic champions,
As they'd spin on the frozen spray.
But there was one moment in that whole spectacular show,
When the band would strike up a quiet waltz,
And they turned all the lights down low.

CHORUS)
Old smoothies,
Two old people on skates
Sequined septuagenarians doing their figure eights.
How they'd glide 'round the arena,
So serene and sublime.
They had been the old smoothies for a long, long time.

Where did they get the stamina?
How did they stay in shape?
I bet that took the lion's share
Of Linament, pride and tape.
See my Grandpa would smile as the smoothies,
Would glide and pirouette,
And then he would reach for my Grandma's hand,
And Grandma's eyes got wet
The spotlight stayed on the smoothies,
While they circled the ice and bowed
Before fifteen thousand hockey fans,
Not a dry eye in the crowd
(REPEAT CHORUS)


from the CD booklet of the 1988 Steve Goodman recording, Affordable Art

Yeah, I figured it'd be easy to find ANYTHING by such a fantastic writer. A lot of his songs are missing from the web.

But I'm happy to have this one now.
Thanks!!
