GERALD (don't drink and drive)
-
download mp3

by Reid Jamieson
and Carolyn Victoria Mill

 

 

Carbon monoxide martini

– are you shaken or stirred?
Licensed to kill in your Camaro,

with the radio on, everybody’s heard…
Were you planning on opening that bottle?
Or keeping the lid on

tighter than the lid can be.

 

The Salvation Army has your wardrobe.
You spend your good money on hash.
Working construction and destruction.
Under the table and paid in cash.

Good to go and the night was getting late.
Could’ve used your head,

but instead you tempted fate.


And I’m not leaving out the part

where maybe you have murdered.
Shake your weary head,

and tell us why you did it.

Gerald you have let down,

Gerald you have let down.
All the family wishes that girl was alive.

 

You have a son, I have a cousin.
And I know that he smokes and drinks
Making some small talk in a small town.
Throwing up in the legion’s bathroom sink.
Have you found somebody else to drive?
I raise a glass that the both of you survive.

 

And I’m not leaving out the part
where maybe you have murdered
Her eyes are closed for good.
Don’t tell us why you did it.
Gerald you have let down, Gerald you have let down.
All the family wishes that girl was alive.


You should find another who could drive…

You should find another who could drive…

You should find another who could drive…

You should find another who could drive…
