Lyrics
She says it's o.k.
The rat just burned an end to ten men but
Who's gonna say
It's just not my day
She's got enough stuff to get me tough and
She's not gonna play
The holiday is over
The honeymoon is over
The garden's overgrown
The trust is rusted
The rake's been busted
The seeds are sown
The signs on your breath
What do you expect
Echo in the hall
The ghost of a picture
Still haunts the monster
Bedroom mirror broke
I suppose you'll say she made a fool of me
Oh, but she has authority
It used to be fine
Days full of music, nights full of music
Music all the time
Invisible lies
I tried my best but I transgressed it
Used to be fine
Chances are used up
Finances used up
Energy is low
Letters are returned
Lovers are spurned
Deliver quite a blow
The signs are disaster
I wouldn't put it past her
The diver's in the dark
The stale perfume
In her old room
Hell of a shock
I suppose you'll say she made a fool of me
Oh, but she has authority
I guess that that's old
The curtain comes down the circus leaves town
And leaves the game to fold
I guess that I think
The world keeps spinnin', people keep sinnin'
All the rest is just bullshit
The shadow's getting longer
The widow's getting younger
The cup doth overflow
The luxury of painted
Babies in a crib
On with the show
Life is a tangle
Of one-night triangles
The tangle of life leaps
You sleep like a baby
You're precious as a ruby
Goodbye, everything
I suppose you'll say she made a fool of me
Oh, but she has authority
