Unemployed on Monday (lyrics)

(Erin Jordan and The Whiskey Romance)
September, 2008
Unemployed on Monday
A bit under the weather
The diner is closed today
So let’s just lay together
Burn the piles of clothes on the floor
And break the tea cups too
We will dance in the ash
We will dance in the glass
And then start anew….

No light came in last night
And the chemicals turned sour
And the earth revolved around the sun
While we slumbered through the hours
Two stray cats fall in love under the moon
We dig through the trash and chase all the rats
And do as the stray cats do
We did through the trash and chase all the rats
And do as the stray cats do

The weeds grow rampant in this seedy side of town
The more they grow, the more you try to cut them down
So we dive underneath the blue
You won’t come back for air….

The coffee is as bitter as the waitress who brings it
And I think there is a fly in your soup
And underneath the fluorescent lights
Your eyes are less and less hazel
And more and more chartreuse

The weeds grow rampant in the seedy side of town
The more they grow the more you try to cut them down
So we dive underneath the blue
You won’t come back for air…..
