Little Brown Rooster

Little brown rooster

Sings the blues all day

Calling for his little hens

Singing that he wants to play

He struts and dances

They dance away

Little brown rooster

Sings the blues all day

Little brown rooster

Sings the blues all day

As nighttime falls

Things fade to black

That hen house is hopping

Like a jumped up Cadillac

Little brown rooster

Don’t sing the blues at night

He’s too busy dancing

With those hens and getting tight

Little brown rooster

Don’t wake up at dawn

He only gets up at half past jazz

With a quiet kind of yawn

Little brown rooster

Sings the blues all day

Little brown rooster

Sings the blues all day

Perfect

A perfect view

From a perfect spot

But I’m here alone

Where you are not

And I’ve got my freedom

On the rising tide

Got my hopes and dreams

That a pin could pop

 

That’s when I remember

The way you looked

That’s when I remember

The strength it took

To move on

Past the bitter end

Swallow my defeat

And walk away again

 

A perfect view

From a perfect spot

I’m here alone again

Where you are not

 

So I hunker down

In the bitter wind

Put one foot in front the other

‘Til the corner’s turned

 

It’s a perfect view

And a perfect spot

I’m here alone again

Where you are not

Shadowboxer

I am a shadowboxer of distinction

But I know I’ll never win

Going toe to toe with my reflection

Is bound to do me in

 

Yet I step into the ring again

Think I’ll box another round

Every time you leave me hanging

Each time you turn me down

 

It starts with second guessing

All that stuff that echoes in my head

And soon enough it escalates

Till I’m fighting me instead

 

Yes I’m just a shadowboxer

Throwing punches in the air

Landing knockout blows on nothing

Just grasping straws that never were

 

My arguments are all inside

The dialogue is pointed

The things I did I now regret

And too many disappointed

 

I am a shadowboxer of distinction

But I know I’ll never win

Went toe to toe with my reflection

And its left me all done in
