Lyrics
TOE JAM [Buckley/Smith]

It's hard to see the point 
of dancing on a broken joint

"Break a leg" is meant to bring good luck
I didn't break a leg I broke a toe
does that mean that my performance is going to suck
or that I'm nine-tenths good to go?

You can run on a broken leg
if you're late for your afternoon nap
You can dance with a broken toe 
if you're squirming on a big tipper's lap
 
It's hard to stay in step with your toe changing its tune
from mini-stub to major sprain to hanging by a thread
I wince, I whine, I waver, I wail beneath my breath
I hobble through a pas-de-deux "Dear God, just let me rest!"
 
Every time I pirouette
my toe emits encrimsoned dew
its death-spiral tracery 
bedaubing cheeks as if face-painting
Satan’s rubescent crew

I guess dancing on a broken toe is primarily
just a matter of blood-spatter choreography
