Hello, I missed your call.
You're the one that I always lie about, no one knows that I'm without. It happens every fall.
When the groundwork that we've laid proves it's worth and we get paid again.
8 A.M. all day, from the greybreak in the morning to the grey sunset that's yawning.
All that it can say is to threaten more to bore me and send me to bed early again.
Still waiting in line, nothing much to do. Still far behind, we can only loose.
The list on my hand sprawls, I'll consider something done if I even get to one of them.
And underneath it all, when there's nothing much to do, I'm in love with only you again.
ed Haired Mary
Put down your red hands, Mary. 'Cause we're going out tonight.
Put down your red hands, Mary. 'Cause we're going out tonight.
And I want to make it there without a fight.
Don't wear that orange dress, Mary. 'Cause I"m not an Orange Man.
Don't wear that orange dress, Mary. 'Cause I"m not an Orange Man.
And we're going to stay out all night if we can.
Keep your hands off Red Haired Mary, her and I will soon be wed.
We'll see the priest this very morning. And tonight we'll lie in a marriage bed .
Well it's been so long Mary. I've been waiting for this date.
Well it's been so long Mary. I've been waiting for this date.
Come out, Mary. Please don't make me wait.

    General Commenti think it's a little bit about a cycle he goes through every year around the same time.
