lyrics

How it happens on a new day
As the bathroom boys awake you
In a bebop that's the backup
For their voices that demand you
As their Legos pierce your footsteps
And you yell 'Aim for the toilet'
A familiar refrain, a case of deja vu
That surrounds you in its aggravations
and denied exasperations,
It's another time, it's another place, it's another day.

As you microwave their Pop Tarts
Hear their embryonic grumbles
Loudly begging for your presence
Without which they can't ignore you
Give a cameo performance
In absorbing daytime drama
Safely acted on stain-resistant Herculon,
As you ask if kids on other planets
Wipe their tentacles on the guest towels
It's another time, it's another place, it's another day
It's anothehr time, it's another place, it's another day.

As you fix the horizontal
Turn to study the Ricardos
Catch the light of your reflection
Late Still Life by unknown artist
Midlife Wife with Hoover Upright
Madly lit behind the pupils
(Seven-forty on the verbal, and seven-ten on the math),
And the memory rocks you like a nightmare,
Then deserts you like a daydream,
It's another time, it's another place, it's another day.
It's another time, it's another place, it's another day.
