TODD


todd waits for a letter

with ever fading hope

his friends applied together

they all got thin envelopes

ah to dream a fine dream

caught between harvey’s and harvard


see that she dumped him flat

she’s on her hands and knees

she’s crawling back

she’s begging todd please

never would have let you go

if i’d known how smart you were


flow to his need ebb to his wanting

down on his knees he’s yawning

flow to his need he’s down on his knees


finally the “yes” comes in

todd can see his future

a shiny red convertible

a thousand dollar hooker

he reads the letter ten times

and waits for delicious joy


funny thing it never comes

but he can remember a girl called barb

she cut him loose at recess

he was begging in the schoolyard

finally she said ok

but todd dumped her after two days

he was full of fire for the chase

full of fire evaporates...


flow to his need ebb to his wanting

down on his knees he’s yawning

flow to his need he’s down on his knees


he’s standing proudly

laughing with the customers

at starbuck’s coffee

he’s a quote out of the hustler

this mop’s my pool cue

look out minnesota fats

the next time i’ll be ready


flow to his need ebb to his wanting

down on his knees he’s yawning

flow to his need he’s down on his knees

listen to “Todd” from Country Songs and Instrumentals
