  • Lyrics: I overslept this morning but I had nowhere to be That just means that no one nowhere's waiting around for me You were gone so I went downtown Your angry words still in my hands the gin still on my breath Walked down to the county bank to see if something’s left But the lights were off and the door wouldn’t budge It’s Columbus Day and the paper’s got a story on B-2 Talking about how brave Chris was to sail the ocean blue But explorer’s just a better way of saying runaway So grab your junk throw it in the trunk It’s Columbus Day I know you’re mad about your job and what your father said I walk across the street to see a sale on waterbeds No down payments and no interest for a year! I know I know that aint no reason to stay Those things they make me dream I’m drowning anyway The road is open and the coast is clear It’s Columbus Day and you’re the only thing I like about this town These city limits only limit me and bring you down I think we’d be better off without them anyway So let’s head out west and make the best of it It’s Columbus Day Ain’t got no Pinta no Nina no Santa Maria just a bad reputation and a good idea Your friends are getting married and your daddy hates my guts Your momma she does too but probably twice as much This world aint flat. It’s just narrow as hell The leaves are turning green to gold Them northern winds are blowing cold If we don’t leave right now ill spend the new year growing old TYHey're aint no good news in the old world It’s Columbus Day and we all know what he did but I suspect that he was getting tired of Madrid Maybe we’ll find our new world in Vegas or L.A. So dry your tears and face your fears It’s Columbus Day.
