"Still Life With Cooley" as written by and Kevin Griffin....
Everybody talking saying you will be walking
This neighborhood will never be the same
You said we'd understand. You found out what's happening now.
So we all sat down and you broke the news.

Now daddy don't love her anymore.
It's still life with Cooley
Now Daddy don't love her anymore.
It's just still life with Cooley.
All your friends show on time.
They come in bringing red wine.
You said if it's over then we'll go in style.

You better best take care keep one hand to your ear
So you're not left hanging when they're finally gone.

[Chorus:]
Watcha' saying?
You're going to stay of at St. Madigan's?
(reeled in again)

You're just fooling around fooling around
People hanging with their good friends
Listening to those old songs
Now Daddy don't love her anymore.

It's still life with Cooley
Now Daddy don't love her anymore.

It's just still life
It's just still life with Cooley.

    General CommentI think that this song may have a "prodigal son" type theme to it. "Saying you will be walking" sounds like a reference to someone who just barely avoided jail (when maybe they didn't deserve to). Afterwards, it seems as though everyone is throwing this guy a party in celebration. Furthermore, it seems that the one organizing the party may be the father. Meanwhile, "Daddy don't love her" may be the father ignoring the daughter who has always done right while he feasts attention on his "prodigal son" instead. This is what I get out of it at least.
