​Neighborhood Blues

This song is by David Kauffman & Eric Caboor and appears on the album Songs From Suicide Bridge (1984).

My daddy's workin' and my mama's in bed
Been there for eight days with a pain in her head
My sister's struttin' her stuff on the grass
Brother's out huntin' one more piece of ass

But I think I'll write me a letter
Think I'll send it away
To some lonesome loser
Who'll hear what I've got to say

The neightborhood begins to smell like death
Windows are foggin' from a drunkyard's breath
Junkies are shakin' out of every tree
The dog next door won't want to let them be

But I think I'll write me a letter
Think I'll send it away
To some lonesome loser
Who'll hear what I've got to say

My old acquaintances have just moved on
To one-track houses with Bermuda lawns
Their cars are painted like their ladies' nails
At least their chrome will shine when all else fails

But I think I'll write me a letter
Think I'll send it away
To some lonesome loser
Who'll hear what I've got to say

The sun is droppin' like a dish to the floor
Darkness comes crashin' but there's somethin' more
The moon has faded and the stars are all gone
This town may never see another dawn

But I think I'll write me a letter
Think I'll send it away
To some lonesome loser
Who'll hear what I've got to say
Yeah, some lonesome loser
Who'll hear what I've got to say
Ain't there no lonesome losers
Who'll hear what I've got to say?
Am I the only loser
Left in this world...
Today?
