​Rest Awhile

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the EP Working Undercover for the Man (2000) and on the compilation album They Got Lost (2002).

I got rid of my jackets and coats
I threw out all of my pants
I got sick of my stinkin' clothes
I had to get rid of them

I'm not yet considering replacing them
I'm only glad to be rid of them

Rest awhile
Rest awhile

I lay out in the sun too long
And burned off all of my skin
I felt so dizzy I got into the car
And got into an accident

Out of the burning wreckage I fell
Wanting only to lay where I fell

Rest awhile
Rest awhile
Rest awhile!

I became friendly with Ruy Lopez
The author of works on chess
Ruy said you're incorrect
He cut me off and acted mad

He won't even talk to me now
But I don't care 'cause I'm sick of that guy

And I need to rest awhile
Rest awhile
