Grievances (Daniel Johnston - Songs of Pain)                            7/20/2007

 

If I had my own way

You'd be here with me today   

But I rarely have my own way

I guess that's why you're not here with me today

And the librarian said

'You can't buy no respect'

I said, ‘Hey, lady, what can you expect

When I'm lying on the floor?’

 

Well I love the lady but you don't wanna be

No girl of mine

Well the only thing you ever done for me

Was help me waste my time

And I saw you at the funeral

You were standing there like a temple

I said ‘Hi!  How are you?  Hello!’

And I pulled up a casket and crawled in

Yes, I did

 

Climbed up a Mountain and I looked around

Some kind of circus with all them clowns

I said hey wait a minute can't we slow down a bit

And I almost got hit by a truck

 

Well it just goes to show you that we're all on our own

Scrounging for our own share of good luck

Stab your brother in the back

And pick up your pay check

 

Good-bye lonely heart drawings

You never did work anyhow

I'm looking for a nice girl

And I don't want no cow

 

I'm heading out West

Gonna find me the best

Well, I played the game but I failed the test

If I can't be a lover then I'll be a pest

Yes, I will
