The Wild Mouse Song: The singer imagines the boundary between life and death as an amusement park ride, then conjectures communicating with ‘little dead souls.’

A Wild Mouse roller coaster (also Mad Mouse or Crazy Mouse) is a type of roller coaster characterized by small cars that seat four people or fewer and ride on top of the track, taking tight, flat turns (without banking) at modest speeds, yet producing high lateral G-forces. The track work is characterized by many turns and bunny hops, the latter producing abrupt negative vertical G forces.

The Wild Mouse Lyrics

The singer imagines the boundary between life and death as an amusement park ride, then conjectures communicating with ‘little dead souls.’

The Wild Mouse

 (Doyle/Kelley 2016)

Verse 1

Where do we find the Rim of Life?

Where do we find the Rim of Death?

The exact point where the living

can touch ghostly ones without breath,

tiny dead souls, so forgiving.

Chorus

Your rim . . . .

It’s a joyride, it’s a joust,

careening soul, a spiral,

thrilling ride, The Wild Mouse,

you flirt with them awhile,

it’s nothing you’ve been fed,

but they tell us instead

about a day you can re-pay.

Life and Death are not separate,

they just look that way.

Verse 2

Little souls who would flirt with us,

Little souls who would flirt with us

at the arc where our somber hearts

describe the universe of us,

drawing the living soul in parts.

Instrumental

 

 

 

Bridge

Ooo, Ooo, the Rim of Life,

Ooo, Ooo, the Rim of Death,

Ooo, Ooo, pure baby’s breath,

Ooo, Ooo, the Rim of Life,

Ooo, Ooo, the Rim of Death

 

Instrumental

 

Chorus

Your rim . . . .

It’s a joyride, it’s a joust,

careening soul, a spiral,

thrilling ride, The Wild Mouse,

you flirt with them awhile,

it’s nothing you’ve been fed,

but they tell us instead

about a day you can re-pay.

Life and Death are not separate,

they just look that way.
