Get Stuff

down the stairs

it's about half past happy hour and
i found my words for you
seems you've been gone at least a week now
i may have some problems with your truth
and i'm going to walk down to the corner
cause i know that you're not there
i may find someone new to hang with
first they'll probably have to grow some hair
i went to work one morning
came back your stuff was off the shelf
i was thinking maybe we could have some fun
guess i'm gonna have to do it for myself
and then i'm gonna walk down to the corner
maybe see if you got back in town
and i may miss you for a while
but then i'll buy another round

i came to see you in your valley
and i hiked all thru the mud
the only ones home were the mosquitos
stayed just long enough to lose some blood
now i'm gonna walk down to the corner
and i'll probly look for you
tho i know you're not in town and if you
are you're not alone
i just got nothin else to do

you asked me once if i would marry
but i knew you asked cuz you were just too high
may be the best we had between us was
it didn't mean enough to make me cry
i tried o tell you bout my theory
i guess i never got it right
all that time i thought we were
hanging out as friends
seems you had me auditioning for a wife
and now i'm gonna walk down to the corner
cuz i know you're not in town
yeah, i may miss you for a while
but then i'm gonna buy another round
