Title :

Why Must You Always Dress In Black


You may be a cheap date

But my therapy's expensive as hell

Then you pay a psychic healer who let you know

Things aren't working out so well



Tomorrow's shining off our face

Yesterday's shadow's at our back, at our back

So why must you always dress in black?



People, they don't take advice, they only give it

And the only way you're ever gonna learn is to live it

So what you spent your younger years

Parlaying on the wrong side of the track, of the track

Well, why, why must you always dress in black?



If you have to lie, do it quickly

And as thoroughly as you can, as you can

This morning I woke up slow

Feeling like a shell of a man



Don't blame me for us, you cried

Or cut me some slack, cut me some slack

And tell me why, why must you always dress in black?



She wore high heels

The ones that can pierce your heart, pierce your heart

Just 'cause you go down in history

Doesn't mean you're really are that smart



Like Robert E Lee at your best

When under attack, under attack

Why must you always dress in black?



You call in sick on Monday

Tuesday, you show up late

Wednesday, you left early

Thursday, you fight with a boss you hate



Friday, you up and quit

Saturday, you want your old job back, old job back

But Sunday morning, you wake up all dressed in black

Why must you always dress in black?
