Hey Darlene, I’d like a word with you
You’ve been thinking out loud and none of that is true
When you talk through your hat, well no one wants to hear that
Hey Darlene

Oh the return of the prodigal son
Happens every day when your work is done
Let’s not get caught up in deception
But you’ve earned his affection
Hey Darlene
Hey Darlene

Oh light a fuse and let it burn
There’s a lesson to be learned
Hurling missives dripping wet in gasoline

I guess the deepest blood connection
Can somehow lead to an infection
Of the body, mind and fully vented spleen
Hey Darlene
Hey Darlene

Hey Darlene, I’m flattered just the same
You talk a lot about me
But take it all in vein
When you whisper in the night
Does your left hand know the right

Hey Darlene
Hey Darlene
Her Darlene

The Stephen Stanley Band Toronto, Ontario

Stephen came up through the Canadian music scene with The Lowest of the Low. After years of touring, a gold record for 'Shakespeare My Butt' and some hard knocks, he thought of walking away from music. He never did quit though then his friends and fellow musicians urged him to form The new Band.

New record coming Fall 2017
