NO PLACE TO BE TODAY

THE MAN AT THE FACTORY SAID THINGS ARE SLOW.

IíD LIKE TO KEEP YOU ON BUT YOUíLL HAVE TO GO.

I KNOW THESE TIMES ARE TOUGH.  IíM HURTINí JUST AS MUCH.

WHEN THINGS PICK UP WEíLL GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU.

 

MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY SEEM SO LONG.

THURSDAYíS DONE AND FRIDAYíS ALMOST GONE.

A YOUNG RETIREE, THATíS WHAT THEY WANT FROM ME.

SITTINí IN MY ROCKINí CHAIR AT HOME.

 

NO PLACE TO BE TODAY.

NOTHINí YOUíVE GOT TO DO OR SAY.

NO ONE TO TELEPHONE.

MAYBE JUST SIT AT HOME, ALONE.

TURN ON THE T.V. SET.

AINíT GOOD, BUT WHAT THE HECK.

LIVE TODAY LIKE YESTERDAY, LIKE YESTERDAY.

 

FRIENDS DOWN AT THE BAR DONíT COME AROUND.

MONEYíS GETTINí SCARCE IN THIS WHOLE TOWN.

THE LANDLORDíS AT MY DOOR, THE BANKER HE WANTS MORE.

AND THE PRICE OF GASOLINE IS ON THE RISE.

 

I MIGHT NOT LIVE THE LIFE OF A MOVIE STAR.

OR DO THE TOWN WITH YOU EATINí CAVIAR.

BEFORE MY LIFE IS DONE, WILL I SEE PEACE FOR EVERYONE?

WE JUST CANíT LIVE ANOTHER DAY THIS WAY.
