lyrics

Neighbor Helen: Good morning son, I knew you hadn’t gone away
What with the bolted door and breakfast dishes in the sink to stay
Sunken with the suds and grey
Hey, hey!

Operator! Operator! Tell the preacher there’s more for later!
Tell the mailman and the writers! Tell the business and the buyers!

Jason, your toes are singing songs about your thumbs and oranges
What’s in the woods? “It’s good!” I’ve heard the people say
But what of bears? Who cares! You’re living day to day
Hey, hey!

Operator! Operator! Tell the preacher there’s more for later!
Tell the husband and his mistress! Tell the courts and every witness!

Punches and hits that make a pleasant parlor game —
This time next year our evenings will have rearranged and changed
Ducks in the vents they quack in merry melody —
Helen, the din’s removed me from my gallantry and turned me on my head


Grandpa washed the windows at the factory,
I clean the glass at the corner grocery

I live next to some modern men – they’re going places
But I’m just working on who I am by making faces at them
Don’t bury the car and I won’t bury your name
