I was buyin', it was a decadent time.
We had a half-a-dozen houses, and the market was mine.
The doomers and gloomers had their heaven and hell.
They said "Imagine what you'd do if it happened to you!"
Everyone moves, and well I did it too.
So you might as well know that I did it for you.
As the zodiac shows, I'm accident prone.
I had to hunker down and reminisce on shakin' it loose.
Another decision, another magician.
Listen to words? There's a wasp in his hand now.
We could ride mules, or the market could choose.
I could write a book called "How to Win It and Lose."
Maybe more men would fill the holes in our walls.
And maybe I could join too if I got it approved.
They said I think I can change you, I know I can change you.
If you fall into line and grab the citizen in front of you.
You were a two, I was a seven.
I was amazing, what an amazing husband!
I was gonna sue, and then I withheld.
Your mother's attorney was a whole year ahead of me.
And the funny thing is, when I feel understanding,
The voice of the pills says I was demanding.
And so I put on these shoes because they're my shoes
While the goals I've imposed on my life want to kill me.
