Bukowski infused slice of Apple Pie Americana...


I'm goin' out tonight
Things are lookin' bright.
My girl's back in town.
She turns my fown upside down.
It's time to go, time to go,
Into town. Turn my life around.

We meet at Bob's Cafe.
We got so much to say.
The sparkle in her eye.
As I order Ham on Rye.
Does she know? Does she know?
I hope so x 2

The nerves'r gettin' to me.
As I hold the ring.
She's got somethin' to say.
I proceed to listen in dismay.
Up in smoke. Up in Smoke.
Oh no no x 2

She tells me 'bout a guy.
Named Jack - he's six foot high.
'It's not you it's me',
is what she said to me.
I can grow. x 2
No I can't! Time to let go.

She wishes me well.
But leaves me in Hell.
I go pawn the ring.
I get drunk an' I have a fling with her best friend Rose,
Her friend Rose.
Well that's how it goes. x 2

I never saw Jane again.
She married Jack there and then.
Many years have passed.
But my wife Rose she's still got a fine ass,
Yes she does.. mmm...mmm....mmm
