The Boy Scouts Of America

This song is by Saint Etienne and appears on the album Tiger Bay (1994).

Like a birthday card / from a previous year,
The weather in Chayco / is sparkling and clear.
The girl lies in bed, / the boy sits in the yard.
He wants to talk sleep / but he has to keep guard.

She stirs from her sleep / and she calls for a beer;
He knows there are none / and pretends not to hear.
She hears his breath / like she's heard it before.
She cuddles her sheets / as he slips out the door.

God had derailed / the Lonestar train
That can take her away / from sadness and pain.
He acts like a saint / but the strain really shows;
The boy scouts of America / taught him all that he knows.
