Goodnight, Fair Lady

Album: The Afterman: Ascension (2012)
  • Good evening, ladies and gentlemen
    I have a story to tell you, of a once lonely night
    When a girl came down the street to break this man's heart

    Oh lord I think I deserve a little better than this
    I think I've earned it
    So I'll just keep plucking this song and hope you follow

    Turn me over, roll me 'round
    To find the truth that I don't want found
    Oh, don't believe everything you hear
    I'm the snake waiting for you, dear
    And eventually you'll come to me
    I know you will

    Oh, I know you will

    Let's get crazy, I'll make my pass
    The drink turns over, the glass smashed
    And with a kindness and my smarts I replaced your pleasure
    With a friend at the bottom

    Turn me over, roll me 'round
    To find the truth that I don't want found
    Oh, don't believe everything you hear
    I'm the snake waiting for you, dear
    And eventually you'll come to me
    I know you will

    Oh, it's my sake to be your biggest mistake
    Oh, I tell you all you want to hear until you sleep

    I know you will
    Oh, goodnight
    Oh, goodnight, fair lady

    Oh, turn me over, roll me 'round
    To find the truth that I don't want found
    Oh, don't believe everything you hear
    I'm the snake waiting for you, dear
    And eventually you'll come to me
    And eventually you'll come to me

    Oh, we can agree to disagree
    Well maybe that was you, then, and now this is me
    Eventually you'll come to me, baby
    I know you will
