Lyrics

The Middle Ages

Seems like a very long time,
Since you been away, been away, been away……………..

I used to see her all around town.
On the subway…
Café…
Sippin’ on an Earl Gray.
I took her to a restaurant.
Gourmet…
Thick fillet…
Washed it down with a Pousse Café.

Yeah, I know…
Ought to take it slow…
This isn’t a reality show…
Or, a Lifetime video…
Oh, no…

She took over my little world.
With her cachet…
Child’s play…
Red and gold bustier…

She was gone after 13 days.
With my Chevrolet….
Courvoisier …
The macramé for Mother’s Day.

On and on.
All I do is carry on.
Face down on the lawn.
A debauchery decathlon.
And on……………….

I tried to get her out of my mind…
So I made a play,
For the divorcee…
Pepper spray…
Severance pay…
I tried to get back in the game.
With a cutie pie…
From the senior high…
Wasn’t called to testify.

Is it me?
Are my glory days, history?
Have I reached my apogee?
Is this water on my knee? Owweee.

I finally had to settle down.
Soul mate…
Domesticate…
Overwrought and overweight.
I used to see her all around town.
On a Thursday…
Matinee…
Red and gold bustier…

I used to see her all around town…
At the ballet…
Breezeway…
Leading me to harm’s way…..

Is it wrong?
Is this the end of my love song?
Have I run my marathon?
Is it time to say, “So long?”
“So long.”
