When Yer Gone

dirty kichen

This place gets awful messy
   when yer gone
Things ain’t in the places
   they belong
The boys and me been stayin
   up till dawn
And three of them are sleeping
   on the lawn

if you gonna go
baby, let me know
i’ll hire me a crew
to do the things you do
several will get paid
a cop, a chef, a maid
a seamstress and a shrink
someone to hall away my stink

Things get mighty lonesome
   when you go
Days are long and nighttime
   lost its glow
The boys and me been raisin
   Cain too long
Won’t you please come back
   where you belong?

if you gonna go
baby, let me know
i’ll hire me a crew
to do the things you do
several will get paid
a cop, a chef, a maid
a seamstress and a shrink
someone to hall away my stink
