  1. A Record Year For Rainfall

    A Record Year For Rainfall

    I read in the paper today
    It’s been a record year for rainfall
    And you were leaning against the bathroom wall
    In your lonely dress
    Was your only dress

    Stand accusing across
    I’ve got a temper set for tender
    And you were shrugging it off like a feather
    Saying, “Oh, would you look at this weather?”

    What’s the use of all of this?
    It’s to remember you in the entire
    Because I’m watching it slip away
    And in the annals of the Empire
    Did it look this gray?
    Before the fall
    Before the fall

    So rake your thumbnail across
    The stretch of the patina
    Revealing a Proserpina
    In a low recline
    In a steep decline

    What’s the use of all of this?
    It’s to remember you in the entire
    Because I’m watching it slip away
    And in the annals of the Empire
    Did it look this gray?
    Does it look so gray?
    Does it always look so gray?
    Before the fall
    Before the fall

  2. Raincoat Song

    Raincoat Song

    Caroline, you’re angry ’cause you sleep like a spinster
    and you’re twenty-eight.
    You’ve been thinking late
    You couldn’t catch a cold.
    Bend your head double
    in the goosedown, piling all the pillows high.
    Heave your fiercest sigh
    and see if that’ll work.

    And the raincoat that you wore
    when it rained today
    And the raincoat that you wore
    when it rained today,
    I think it only made it rain more.
    I think it only made it rain the more.

    And if the water’s all wickin’ up your pantleg,
    better wear your britches tight.
    I should teach you right
    to be so down at heel.
    Goin’ off half-cocked, night-shot
    full of arrows from the cherubim.
    Oh, the nerve of them–
    to not draw their bows.

    And the raincoat that you wore
    when it rained today
    And the raincoat that you wore
    when it rained today,
    I think it only made it rain more.
    I think it only made it rain the more…
