BRIEFCASE LIVING

morning cigarette on the stoop
Before the first siren crows
Straighten my tie and then realize
Time stopped moving so slow
Deadlines force me to my feet
Get on the subway before 9
Get dropped off in the thick of a city
Where I turn my water to wine

It's a cold jones
She's an old flame
Pushing my buttons
By saying my name
Stay on the gold
It's another misgiving
New sportcoat
Briefcase Living

Midday gotta meet for lunch
Cut another deal like a romance
American way a superman craze
Wall Street boogie and Brulee by chance
Mix up at the port authority
Just like that kegger at dover in 65
Pen runs dry in a sea of triplicate
Got to drink another one for sister Madeline

It's a cold jones
She's an old flame
Telling me a funky riddle
Like a rat race
Stay on the gold
It's another misgiving
Old sportcoat
Briefcase Living

If it were so easy everyone would do it
I used to have ideas at the old school when we had to prove it
By going to Frisco or Nam and finding love in the jungle
Now I'm stomping the concrete like a money hungry king Kong yet still I hunger
Where does it all go?

Evening falls like a guillotine
Manhattan is tight from the heat
Loosen my tie and take a load off
Look for something to eat
It's a TV dinner with me myself and I
Read Voltaire on the fire escape
She's a memory of what used to be
When it was fun to get into a scrape

It's a cold jones
She's an old flame
Telling me a funky riddle
Like a rat race
Stay on the gold
It's another misgiving
Old sportcoat
Briefcase Living
Slick my hair back
Easy affair
Take a taste of that new york air

CONEY ISLAND ALGEBRA

Living alone in a flat in the Bronx
Playing piano by TV light
Sipping old junior and sleeping in
Nowhere to go as I wring out the night
Phone rings it's the state department
Urgent message to go on the lam
Get word to ruby that I'm Cadillac bound
Poring over nude thoughts in Siam

Count backwards from ten
Asthma and corndogs
Coney Island algebra
Let's bathe in nostalgia
I'll be be back home
To fire up another parliament
Regale you in adventures
In the faithful zone

What are you drinking
It smells so divine
Like carbonated leather
Soaking in the good times
Distortion dinners and carson by Morse code
Makes a Delaware evening complete
Bombs away to the old folks at home
Silk sheets and magazines litter the streets

Count backwards from ten
Asthma and corndogs
Coney Island algebra
Let's bathe in nostalgia
I'll be be back home
To fire up another parliament
Regale you in adventures
In the faithful zone

Watch a movie and feel like I lived it
More popcorn and candy to fit in
Plugged in the cell phone so it gets ahead
Of my credits and razor sharp threads

Count backwards from ten
Asthma and corndogs
Coney Island algebra
Let's bathe in nostalgia
I'll be be back home
To fire up another parliament
Regale you in adventures
In the faithful zone

It's all in the bones
It's a limousine home
Dice roll

OLD NIGHTINGALE

she was a backstreet princess
Pin up girl for philosophy professors
Gave up a cigarette and my parking permit
So she could get straight As and a wedding date
What a rough and tough world
Disguised by the scent of fresh bagels
Now and then I remember
Hide and seek on the causeway
A three mile island romance

Old
Nightingale
So fine
Used to be mine
Slang on AM
Do it up for Saturday night

She had soft hands full of false information
Lie detector and movie directors seek her frame
Eyes alight like a campfire on the borderline
To turn a good man into a hustler for good times
What a rough and tough world
Obscured by my consumerist lies
Here and there I remember
Snowball fights in Central Park
The Dakota looms on the high side

Old
Nightingale
So fine
Used to be mine
Slang on AM
Do it up for Saturday night

It's time to take my exams
Time to take another chance
One sip of espresso
Before I let her get away

IT'S AROUND

Scanning the old high school annual
Remembering my lost love
Her eyes still alight in the old black and white
She made a young man bad
Amused by the news
That she became a doctor at bellvue
Behind the professional demeanor
Is a viper ready to strike

I'm still that wayward boy
Ready to take my medicine
If she needs a night on the town
It's around

Reading the paper from last week
Figure out gossip I missed
Her name is splashed on the back pages
She makes this old man sad
Bemused by the news that she married a dude
We used to smoke with after school
He got himself together
And now he's running away with my long lost jewels

I'm just an clerk at the courthouse
Ready to drink my medicine
Want to speak Esperanto without sound
It's around
It's always around
