The camera pans the cocktail glass
Behind a blind of plastic plants
I found the lady with the fat diamond ring
Then you know I can't remember a damn thing
He’s painting the picture of this memory he’s recalling. Cocktail glasses, plants, and a woman with a noticeable diamond ring.
The first two lines reference Joni Mitchell’s “The Boho Dance” from “The Hissing of Summer Lawns.” The original reads: “A camera pans the cocktail hour/ Behind a blind of potted palms”
