On failure to launch

lyrics

CHORUS:
Working no job, taking no train
Hearing no call, feeling no pain
Oh, she’s like a rainbow
That goes on forever
She’ll get busted

Won’t get a job, and won’t tell mom
Never really thought about it all that long
Given up the crying for laughing out loud at nothing

Sitting in the house, watching that show
The one where the guy does the thing you know
Never need an enemy, friends’ll do just fine

(CHORUS)

Had to get a job, couldn’t keep it down
Had to go to school, and she never was around
Can’t kick her out, ‘cause she’ll just shack up with him

Doesn’t get mad, doesn’t get high
Can’t make her laugh and you can’t make her cry
No movin’, no losin’, no nothin’ gonna happen till she feels that way

(CHORUS)

(SOLO)

Now I got a job, and a house to my name
And I fall down some, but I get up again
Oh, I got the memory
But I ain’t got the rainbow
I got busted

(CHORUS)
