Recorded Fall 2008, Hoosick Falls, NY


Oh you could hand me a dollar
you could hand me a dime
but i assure you honey
no amount of money
could change my mind

cause it's clear i've got a game plan
cause its clear that i've got goals
now please go home

and i've made contacts with the locals
i've made contacts with police
and if there's word of you in town
i swear you'll see no sign of me
cause i've got a house of polished steel
with no windows, hung from eves
and only I know how to enter
because i've got the only key

and if this seems a little drastic
and you're questioning my state
well i assure you honey, if you had my money
you'd shy away from fate
sure it's easy just to flaunt it
live your life out on display
but i've got wordiness, distinction and a social life at stake

so if you wouldn't mind retiring
I suppose it's just as welll
you can sleep out on the sofa
if you're hungry, help yourself
and by the dawn i'll hail a taxi
hell, i'll even pay the fare
just remember nothing happened
there was no liaison here.
