Something For Your Life

Patrick Cannell 2020

This old woman who thought she had it coming,
The bloke who did her plumbing had it coming for years.
This old preacher who thought he loved a teacher
But she was into nature so now he's into her.

Eliminate all your former failures,
Eliminate all your past mistakes.
We're giving you something for your life,
We're giving you something for your life,
We're giving you several good reasons not to change.

This old sonandso who liked to play his banjo
Was prompted to go solo upon his wife's advice.
This old copper who almost came a cropper
'Cause he had failed to stop her from skating on thin ice.

Eliminate all your former failures,
Eliminate all your past mistakes.
We're giving you something for your life,
We're giving you something for your life,
We're telling you nothing is exactly as it seems.

This head mistress was feeling somewhat listless
And somehow she got blisters while courting Charlie's Aunt.
This old preacher who thought he loved a teacher
But she was into Nietzche so now he's into Kant.

Eliminate all your former failures,
Eliminate all your past mistakes.
We're giving you something for your life,
We're giving you something for your life,
We're telling you nothing is exactly as it seems.
