  • This is my song don't sing along
    It's opinions disarrayed of might are drooped
    Like good men I am disabled
    From understanding what we are taught to condemn

    In the kingdoms of the well and of the sick
    And the hours that it took to think of this
    And the road that got the best of you one day
    Can you see it all

    Some how I knew this wasn't it
    Some how I knew that we will see this to fruition
    They said I was a ditsy housewife
    And I have a crude opinions of unpractised men

    In my pajamas I still hold my record player
    There's a hockey game on the table by the chair
    And when it rains your hair begin to curl
    Come the winds of dawn

    Without your eye patch and your parrot
    I've been informed it was national "talk like a pirate day"
    Perhaps this singing is a refuge
    From other equally uncomfortable thoughts
    And you disregard the clock upon the wall
    It's a wonder you can disregard at all
    You just try to find a softer way to fall
    Back into my arms

    Now he thought he was a citizen
    But only in the vaguest sort of way
    And we will tale it to the people
    And the people will then take it all away

    With our pencils we are righteous and we're rough
    And you wonder when your education starts
    And you wipe your nose upon your pretty sleeve
    And then you leave

    I think we had better call a cab
    Our thirst for this has made these no use
    And I remember our last kiss
    And I'll remember all the others from now on

    Until it's time to sing this song over my grave
    Like a boy who just forgets the mourning shave
    Or the girl gets that hound dog to behave
    I will sing to you Writer/s: KURT WAGNER
