​Reader And Advisor

This song is by Loudon Wainwright III and appears on the album Fame And Wealth (1983).

Reader and advisor, can you help me please
Check the cards, read my palm, personal tea leaves
Will I be a millionaire? Will true love come my way?
Reader and advisor, I'll head what you say

Reader and advisor, let me sit inside your sitting room
And partake of the advice, that you provide
Money is no object, I will pay you well
Reader and advisor, my fortune you must tell

Nothing can explain it, it's a mystery
No one can axplain how you know their history
Some fools laugh at gypsy's, some fools call you a fake
Reader and advisor, we both know that's a mistake

Reader and advisor, does danger lie ahead?
Will I lead a long life? Next week, will I be dead?
What's around the corner? What's in store for me
Reader and advisor, is it catastrophe?

Reader and advisor, will my dreams come true?
Use you magic science, show me what to do
Should I take some action or should I just lay it low?
Reader and advisor, which way should I go?

Nothing can explain it, it's a mystery
No one can axplain how you know their history
Some fools laugh at gypsy's, some fools call you a fake
Reader and advisor, we both know that's a mistake
