OH MONA

 

Sorry I missed your call

But I was passed out in the hall

Stayed out too late and I drank too much again.

Got in around three o’clock

Couldn’t get my key in the lock

Now I’m out here with the cat and the recycling bin.

 

I can’t live without you

Oh Mona, Oh Mona

I can’t live without you

Oh Mona please open the door.

 

Drank with a guy down at the Baja Bean

Who thought being clever was to be obscene

Said to all the girls, why don’t you sit on my facebook.  (ha ha ha)

I hung around for a while

Flirted with the bartender just to see her smile

Watched a desperate woman disappear into a trivia machine.

 

I can’t live without you

Oh Mona, Oh Mona

I can’t live without you

Oh Mona please open the door.

 

We live in our houses

Go to work in our cars

Meet in hotels and alleys

Drink in our bars

We pray in our churches

For no permanent scars.

 

I remember the night we met

You held my clarinet

I talked a lot of trash- must’ve been hard to swallow.

But I was cute you said

So you took me to your bed.

Left a note inside my head

Goodnight Apollo.
