I slow down Purple Avenue

to March around in April's fools

Weather vanes remind

of the summertimes that I've left behind

Money's gone for auld lang syne

I spent on Eastern Standard Time

whatever happened to my role(?)

September fell right through the hole

All I've got is empty pockets now

Why does August try so hard

to hoist me on my own pitard?

I've learned one thing from how we were

that an ounce of prevention's worth a pound of cure

The shadows fall, but I cannot thread

the tenor of the things you said

All that's left is flesh and bone

Lights are on but no one's home

All I've got is empty pockets now

I spill myself another drink

I count the silver in the sink

The orchestra is blind

but I've never been the worrying kind

Subsequently and furthermore

I'll sleep right here on the draining board

I'll never be paroled(?)

I like to drink them while they're cold

All I've got is empty pockets now.
