all over town
the flat chested trailor brides
their braces and their bottle caps
jangle like tambourines
triangle flags in a car dealer parking lot
aprons on clothes lines
from barbeque restaurants
and i know your mom's got
a half pack of cigarettes
and one of them's light
and the other nine wait for it

somewhere an arrow
is flashing directionless
over hotels of husbands and infidels
but i'm in the backyard
burning leaves in a barrel
for the prettiest girl
in all of the motor court

casserole role role
casserole role role
casserole role role
casserole role role
casserole role role
casserole role role
casserole role role

    General CommentIt's just a song about living in a bad situation with nothing really good around you, but looking on the upside of it. He's trying to get or already has the prettiest girl in the motor court, which probably doesn't mean much. He has the best of the worst, and he's optimistic about it.

    General CommentI'd say this song is a representation of the mundane facts that one may be held within by some barrier. The "half pack of cigarettes" suggests a constant way of living, and it symbolizes the unhealthy habit of staying where you are.

    Then, the flashing, directionless arrow that is connected with husbands and infidels serves to separate the narrator from other lovers by suggesting that he has a solid interest in a woman in a place with little aspiration for direction.
