a few months ago on my last trip to Vegas, I spotted my first hooker - (my radar is off but I'm gathering they're the girls always walking alone)

she was most likely the cute Asian girl saying hi and giving a nice smile to every guy she walked by on the Strip at 3am - at the time I looked ahead and let it go, being that I had rejoined the Body of Christ and all...

but today, I'd smile and say hi, and find out how much a date was, and she'd follow me back up the Strip to the Imperial Palace or whatever $45/night dive I was staying at, and I'd tell her my first name, - yah, I'd probably use my real first name -

and she'd probably say her name was whatever I wanted it to be, and I'd tell her that her name was Kathleen.

It's plain to see, the sun won't shine today
but I ain't in the mood for sunshine anyway
maybe I'll go insane
I got to stop the pain
Or maybe I'll go down to see Kathleen.

A swallow comes and tells me of her dreams
She says she'd like to know just what they mean
I feel like I could die
as I watch her flying by
ride the north wind down to see Kathleen.

Stars hang high above, the oceans roar
the moon is come to lead me to her door
There's crystal across the sand
and the waves, they take my hand.
Soon I'm gonna see my sweet Kathleen.

Soon I'm gonna see my sweet Kathleen.
