Watch your mouth
your speech is slurred enough
that you might swallow your tounge
you’d want to give up the ghost
with a little more poise than that
Or was it god who chokes in these situations?
Am C Em G Am C
Running Late? No no, he called in. he called in—–.
the hospice is a relaxing weekend getaway
where you are a cut above all the rest
sick and sad patients on first name basis
with all the top physicians
to offset the shakes
to offset the pills [Chorus]
you know you should
G Em Am C
take it a day at a time
Em G Am
That’s when you stutter something profound
to the support on the line
and with the way you’ve been talking
G Am C
every word gets you a step closer to hell.
No, I just can’t help it.
To say what everyone else is thinking
Em G Am C
let me state the obvious again
I am alone in this bed, house and head
she never fixes this but at least she
I am alone in this bed
she never fixes that but at least she
makes me forget
