"Three Martini Lunch" as written by and Graham Thomas Parker....
I live near Hollywood out in the Canyon
It's a good life if you're winnin' it's a killer if you're not
My wife up and left last night, couldn't stand another fight
The studio boss fired me, my future's been shot by

Chorus
The Three Martini Lunch
Things will get better soon, I gotta hunch
The three martini lunch, wasting another afternoon
Punching a hole in my life

I came from the backwoods my prospects seemed real good
For actor or director the future looked bright
But I ran in with a bad crowd and since then it's just been down
Alone in the Canyon my only companion

Chorus

I know what they're saying yeah I'll never get back again
I pushed my luck this time and I'm on the skids
But I know what I'm doing I just can't stop doing it
Me and my companion, hell bent to ruin it

Chorus

Coda
Wasting another afternoon
Punching a hole in my li............fe
Wasting another afternoon
Punching a hole in my life
