"So far" as written by and Garneau....
Like the touch of my mother's hand on my head
I'll miss you, too. when I go to bed
We've ruined all the new pots
And the metal in the egg crate cots
But we haven't missed a good day of television yet so far
But we haven't missed a good day of television yet so far

The dishwasher's on now
Cleaning somehow
The baby bits of hamburger helper that dried too soon
We leave out the milk and it rots
And the mayonnaise that we get from Tops
But we haven't missed a day of eating good food yet so far
But we haven't missed a day of eating good food yet so far

You love good
But I think you should
Go home, honey
'Cause we haven't got any money

Like the touch of my mother's hand on my head
I'll miss you, too. when I go to bed
We've ruined all the new pots
And the metal in the egg crate cots
But we haven't missed a good day of television yet so far
But we haven't missed a good day of television yet so far

    General Commentwow, i'm surprised there haven't been any replies to this song. it's absolutely beautiful. "you love good but i think you should go home, honey, cause we haven't got any money." brilliant. maybe it's his voice, but something about that line and this song just hits me in a way his other songs don't.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about childhood memories. Messing around with his siblings. Leaving out milk, watching TV, getting in trouble, having a financially poor but a decent life. The only deviation is when it suddenly switches themes in saying "You love good, but i think you should go home, honey cuz we haven't got any money." Here he is telling someone to leave. It is about someone living in the past, and refusing help, because of shame. He can't let anyone in, even to this day.
