Subterranean Monday

Go get your coffee

And listen to the cover

It will do you more good

than listening to your mother

˜

Read all the lyrics

Check out the matching pics

Take a quick peruse

Grab some Monday juice

Then look out kid

˜

Johnny’s in the basement

Mixing up the medicine

I’m on the pavement

Thinking about the government

The man in the trench coat


Badge out, laid off


Says he’s got a bad cough
Wants to get it paid off

˜

Look out kid
It’s somethin’ you did

God knows when
But you’re doin’ it again

You better duck down the alley way

Lookin’ for a new friend

The man in the coon-skin cap
By the big pen


Wants eleven dollar bills
You only got ten

˜

Maggie comes fleet foot


Face full of black soot

Talkin’ that the heat put

Plants in the bed but


The phone’s tapped anyway

Maggie says that many say

They must bust in early May

Orders from the D.A.

˜

Look out kid
Don’t matter what you did


Walk on your tiptoes

Don’t try “No-Doz”


Better stay away from those
That carry around a fire hose

Keep a clean nose


Watch the plain clothes

YOU DON’T NEED A WEATHERMAN
TO KNOW WHICH WAY THE WIND BLOWS

˜

Get sick, get well

Hang around an ink well


Ring bell, hard to tell

If anything is goin’ to sell

Try hard, get barred

Get back, write braille

Get jailed, jump bail


Join the army, if you fail

˜

Look out kid
You’re gonna get hit

But users, cheaters
Six-time losers

Hang around the theaters

Girl by the whirlpool
Lookin’ for a new fool


Don’t follow leaders

Watch the parkin’ meters

˜

Ah get born, keep warm

Short pants, romance, learn to dance

Get dressed, get blessed

Try to be a success

Please her, please him, buy gifts

Don’t steal, don’t lift

Twenty years of schoolin’


And they put you on the day shift

˜

Look out kid
They keep it all hid

Better jump down a manhole

Light yourself a candle

Don’t wear sandals

Try to avoid the scandals

Don’t wanna be a bum

You better chew gum

THE PUMP DON’T WORK

’CAUSE THEVANDALS TOOK THE HANDLES

 

It’s Monday.

 

Handle it.
