NEARLY FAMOUS LAST WORDS

I knew it was raining, it always looks like rain
getting past those statues was gonna be fun and games
you caught me in your headlight, with my hat pulled down
running through the morning in my famous fish-face frown

I fall in love a million times on the way to work
the nurses with the winning shine, the teacher and the soda-jerk
I’d like to tell you more, if you’re not bored with it
and you can tell me all, if you’re feeling talkative

now you’re talking, now you’re talking, now you’re talking
nearly famous last words

Down in the bargain basement, cheap at twice the cost
soon began to wonder what it was I had lost
though I grew to love your packaging as any lover should
I never liked your marketing and I never liked your goods

I appreciate the gesture, don’t get me wrong
I was an optional extra and I stayed too long
storm clouds were gathering right above my head
and we had both forgotten what was originally said

now you’re talking…

I fall in love a million times…

now you’re talking, now you’re talking, now you’re talking
and the car horns were blowing –

now you’re talking…
