Ntozake Nelson

Oh no, another day begins 

Calenders and wristwatches are counting down my sins 

Construction trucks outside are piling up the years 

After 25 the brides leave the single girls in tears 

Ab                                Eb5  
God bless them, god bless them all 

'Cause we've heard about what happens when their engine stalls 

The tallest ones are mauled in the falls of the Midwest 
The quiet ones are farmed out to businessmen's requests 

Ab                            Eb5  
And osteoperosis gets the rest 

They'll remember her best as charming and good-looking 

Though they wouldn't take her now for all the beer in Brooklyn 

Her cooking is her pride but she sits alone for dinner 

In the dark under faded posters of Lew Alcindor 

The local red-eyed bottles have settled in for the winter 

Ab                        Eb5 
But you won't see me there 

I can't raise my glass and the others never cared 

Ab                    C#                   Ab                    Eb5 
I'll drink my morning coffee without Irish and I will make amends 

Ab         Eb5              Ab                  Eb5              Eb5        
I miss the bottle I miss my friends, I miss the bottle I miss my friends
