Satellite Iwo Jima

I surf to a movie with John Wayne (x3)

satellite Iwo Jima

I just got home from my lousy job (x3)

screw my cubicle

screw it

gonna quit my job and be a songwriter (x3)

tora tora Warren Zevon

gonna drink ten beers and then I will crash (x3)

like a Zero into the ocean

hey, hey

Hold On, It Gets Better

Preacher Joe is ATM-ing / grabbing traveling dough

Sue called him at four A.M. / “I’m carrying your baby, Joe”

very inconvenient / Sue’s married to Mean Dean

Dean has a pirate eye-patch / owns more guns than the Marines

hold on, it gets better

five Supreme Court peanut eaters / stroll out of a bar

they hi-jack a nearby election / drive it off like a stolen car

they take a right-turn joyride / get stuck on some railroad tracks

freight train barreling down the hill / welcome to Iraq

hold on, it gets better

Preacher Joe changes a flat / whoops, it’s a tornado!

Mean Dean owns two big piranhas / aquarium talk radio

Sue looks out a window / as Preacher Joe flies by

Dean serves his fish the neighbor’s cat / who’s name was Garfield

hold on, it gets better

My Sister’s Pinto

my sister’s Pinto was yellow in color / like a lemon, like a submarine

she drove it through the car-wash every Saturday/ had to keep that Pinto clean

(chorus) my sister’s Pinto, my sister’s Pinto / look at her go, whew Lord, whew Lord

my sister’s Pinto, my sister’s Pinto / that baby was made by Ford

now my sister’s Pinto had three on the floor / it was a lot of fun to drive

buzzer told her to strap in / they had to keep my sister alive

(chorus)

now my sister’s Pinto was almost paid for / things began to go wrong

engine started pinging and the gas tank blew up / radio quit during a Johnny Prine song

(chorus)

Workin’ for the O’l U.P.

up near Castle Rock in midnight rain / an engineer yawns on a slow freight train

he says “it’s just about like workin’ days” / I light up a smoke and sit in the haze

(chorus) hey Ma, still workin’ for the ol’ U.P. / hey Pa, they’ve been pretty good to me

hey wife, I’ll be home eventually / baby baby, I’m  workin’ for the ol’ U.P.

we ain’t bound for glory or any crusade / just a motel hallway, morning maids

up near Castle Rock, hey, listen, listen / to the bones of deer in the headlights glisten

(chorus)

up near Castle Rock in midnight rain / an engineer smiles on a slow freight train

he says “it’s just about like workin’ days” / I light up a smoke and sit in the haze

(chorus)
