Steely DanGirlfriend

Alone in my cave It's corn flakes and camels And the long restless shadows of my life None but the brave Jim beam and jack daniels Channelhopping these empty days and nights Glued to the screen Rerun by rerun At the dark outer limits of my soul Stranded between The green acres of my good intentions And the twilight zone of zero self-control So come on angel Tune in on me You 'll see your faithful servant Lost in misery And all of your hard work Coming down to no good Better see about me babe If you only could now Girlfriend if it can't be you I don't even have anyone to tell my story to I said girlfriend if it can't be you Girlfriend if it can't be you I don't even have anyone to tell my story to I said girlfriend if it can't be you Dust and despair Cobwebs and confusion Collecting in the corners of my room All of my dreams Bitter illusions I just can't be rid of them too soon Tired of my brain Tired of this movie Too tired to get up and shut it off The time that remains What good can it do me Now that I know that too much is not enough Wait a minute baby What about my heart Was it your idea To take it all apart And put it all back together Just one piece at a time Now it's down to you darling That's why I'm all Girlfriend if it can't be you I don't even have anyone to tell my story to I said girlfriend if it can't be you Girlfriend if it can't be you I don't even have anyone to tell my story to I said girlfriend if it can't be you I'm pullin' in a picture now Up off my back pages And all at once am privy to The entire grim design Of a great civilization In the terminal stages Of a slow but steady mental moral spiritual decline And so it goes And thus it is written And all I want to know is Where does a guy like me fit in? So I'm visualizing a cute little bunny With a fluffy white tail and long grey floppy ears Who looks up at me and says, doc don't you worry All you got to do is, hide in here Now all you got to do is to just say when You might consider bringing your sweetness 'round here again Girlfriend if it can't be you I don't even have anyone to tell my story to I said girlfriend if it can't be you Girlfriend if it can't be you I don't even have anyone to tell my story to I said girlfriend if it can't be you
