What we're talkin' about is late night and early morning low clouds
With a chance of fog
Chance of showers into the afternoon
With variable high cloudiness and gusty winds
Gusty winds at times around the corner of Sunset and Alvarado
Yeah I know, things are tough all over

When the thunderstorms start increasing over the southeast
And south central portions of my apartment, I get upset
And a line of thunderstorms was developing in the early morning hours
Ahead of a slow moving cold front
Cold blooded

With, with tornado watches issued shortly before noon Sunday for the areas including
The western region of my mental health
And the northern portion of my ability to deal rationally
With my disconcerted precarious emotional situation
It's cold out there
Colder than a ticket taker's smile at the Ivar Theatre on a Saturday night

Flash flood watches covered the southern portion of my disposition, yeah
There was no severe weather well into the afternoon
Except for kinda a lone gust of wind in the bedroom

High pressure zone
Covering the eastern portion of a small suburban community
With a 1034 millibar high pressure zone
And a weak pressure ridge extending from my eyes down to my cheeks

'Cause since you left me, baby
Put the vice grips on my mental health, well
The extended outlook for an indefinite period of time
Till you come back to me, baby
Is high tonight, low tomorrow
And precipitation is expected

That wraps up the weather for this evening
Now back to the 11:00 o'clock blues
Dr. George Fischbeck ain't got nothin' on me
