about

Your life is filled with things you feel forced to do. Where your midlife crisis meets EC.

lyrics

When you got out of college
The road ahead was clear
The car, the wife, the job, the lawn, the house
The kids to rear

Now metabolism's slowing
Signs of decay appear
Panic sometimes seizes you
And says, Get out of here.

As you drive to work one day
Upon the radio
The song it reaches out to you
Like somebody you know

Now you're hearing in his gentle voice
Rebellion without sacrifice
It's tempting to think that you could swap shoes

But it's not very likely that he shares your point of view
No it's not very likely that he shares your point of view

Steered clear of androgyny
His hair was neatly trimmed
Coked out in the 70s
Cast stones ye without sin

His blues walks hand in hand with his
Frumpy kind of manliness
And that, resonates so deeply, friend, with you.

But it's not very likely that he shares your point of view
No it's not very likely that he shares your point of view

The sultan finds his palace
Has ceased to pacify
You feel displeased and mild unease
As you muse on things to buy

The Janissary is staffed now
With one solitary haus frau
To whom it is a trial to remain true
And your life is filled with things you feel forced to do


It's possible the two of you
might get along quite well
Whom we prefer to spend our time
Nobody can tell

The common ground of kids and work
Might con-vince him you're not a jerk
Anything's possible, man
I suppose that's true

And later feeling bolder
Out comes the off-color joke
A secret smile plays 'round his lips
And disappears like smoke
