“Mushroom Cloud Blues”

me and my baby, we were doin' just fine

that is until a nuclear bomb went off last night

I woke up this morning, she's nowhere to be found

she took everything I owned and left town

if you see her she'll be wearin' a radioactive suit

if you see her she'll be eatin' genetically modified fruit

if you see her she won't be givin' a hoot about me

I got no tv, no iv, no idea why she left me

no food, no booze, no water filter

now I'm all alone in this fallout shelter that I built her

I know it may seem ridiculous at a time such as this

to get choked up over just one girl

but I am!

it's well past the 11th hour so I'm takin' a chemical shower

to wash away the tears that fell at the end of the world

I got no escape, no air supply

I'm underground wonderin' how she could say goodbye

is that mushroom cloud over your head?

or are you just sad to see me?

“I Only Call When I’m Lonely”

you gave me your number the night that we met

and you told me I should give you a call

I hope you don’t mind that I never did

you see, I only call when I’m lonely

that’s why your phone rang today

you see, lately things ain’t been goin’ my way

so I was thinking maybe you’d still like that drink

even though I only call when I’m lonely

you won’t hear from me when I’m doin’ just fine

you won’t hear from me when my name’s in bright lights

no, you won’t hear from me most of the time

because I only call when I’m lonely

now I know I got no excuse

except for when I’m happy I don’t have much to say to you

and honestly I’m not too concerned with how you’re doin’

that’s why I only call when I’m lonely

and I wish you’d pick up, but you know that I

I only call when I’m lonely
