lyrics

NO ONE’S LAUGHING AT MY JOKES NO MORE
THINK I’LL OPEN THIS ONE UP TO THE FLOOR
USE TO BE A TIME WHEN I COULD PACK THIS PLACE
WITH MY LOW KEY CONDEMNATION OF THE HUMAN RACE

CHORUS
IT’S A LONELY JOB I GOT
MAKING IT UP ON THE SPOT
I DRINK A LITTLE TOO MUCH
BUT IT HELPS ME GET THE OLD DUTCH
WOOOOOOOOOOOO
I’M MAKING A COMEBACK
REWORKING MY OLD ACT
BUT THEY DON’T COME BACK
WOOOOOOOOOOOO

I GOT 2 CLEAN SHIRTS 40 CIGARETTES
IN A SUITCASE PACKED WITH PURPOSE AND REGRETS
I GOT BETA BLOCKERS BISODOL AND DIET PILLS
A QUICK PICK QUICK FIX CURE FOR EVERY ILL

REPEAT CHORUS

SOMETIMES I FEEL A LITTLE SORE
FOR REASONS BEST LEFT UNEXPLORED
THEN I HEAR THE VOICE CALL FROM ABOVE
GETTING OLDER IS NO PROBLEM
YOU JUST HAVE TO LIVE LONG ENOUGH

BUT ALL THIS TALK IS WASTING TIME
I’D SELL MY MOTHER FOR THAT KILLER LINE
SO COME ON DOWN AND SEE THE SHOW
DON’T WATCH MY LIFE DISSOLVE ON TV GOLD

REPEAT CHORUS
