Muffins in the toaster.
I got my raspberry jam.
My grandfather was a sailor.
When he came onto this land.
He was looking for gold,
A pretty hand to hold,
Or some cards to fold,
At least, that's what I was told.

Silver lining,
Silver lining, where'd you go?

Turn on my TV,
They got talking heads in space.
Used to be so easy to have a little faith.
I used to rely on luck
To earn an honest buck.
I didn't feel so stuck.
I didn't limp around like John Kruk.

Silver lining,
Silver lining, where'd you go?

I used to have hope.
Now we got soap on a rope.
We used to have dreams,
Now we got overplayed baseball teams.

We got grocery baggers,
Grafitti taggers,
Golf-ball shaggers.
Go team, go.

Silver lining,
Silver lining, where'd you go?

My landlord knocks upon my door.
He's got that payday face.
I swear to God he should be payin' me
To live inside this place.
It's filled with sharks and fins
Whose double chins
Say thicken your skin, child,
If you want to win.

Silver lining,
Silver lining, where'd you go?

I fix myself some herbal tea
'Cause it's healthier they say.
Well, healthier ain't half as fun.
l'lI take a cold beer anyday.
I used to have dysfunctional fun
In the cancerous sun
With my co-dependent hun
Eatin greasy, greasy hotdogs on a buttered up bun.

Silver lining,
Silver lining, where'd you go?
Silver lining,
Silver lining, where'd you go?
