FALL GUY

If you’re looking for quote to use for your review
How about “I could have used an editor before I mentioned you”?
But then the first hand turns to second and the minutes leave the hour
Until your facedown in your forties wondering “Where’s a Higher Power?”

For the Ladies, for the Mens
In the Mercedes Benz
From the Heavens down to Hades through the wrong end of the lens
Underwritten, overpaid
Smitten with the money made
For every cat there is a kitten charging rent for retrograde

There’s a nail in your tire
Where’s the needle nose pliers?
You know a fall guy when you see one
You want an ally but you don’t wanna be one

Dialing roadside assistance
Just to ring some false alarm
Crying wolf to go the distance
Trying to twist somebody’s arm
Maybe I could make a fast buck flipping switches for The Club
If could find myself a bigger pair of britches, there’s the rub

From an armchair to the moon In your hot air balloon
Never put the pen to paper on a Sunday afternoon
Under contract, overdone
The cover shot on Zeppelin I
For every act there is an actor
Every set, a setting sun

There’s a nail in your tire
Where’s the needle nose pliers?
You know a fall guy when you see one
You want an ally but you don’t wanna be one

I’m off, you’re on
Life’s short, so long

Every beach is not Tahiti
Every barstool ain’t The Diamond
If you can’t reach Warren Beatty
Best to not call Carly Simon

There’s a nail in your tire
As you preach to the choir
You know a fall guy when you see one
You want an ally but then you’d have to be one

I’m off, you’re on
Life’s short, so long

I’m off, you’re on
I’m off, you’re on
Life’s short, so long

I’m off, you’re on
Life’s short, so long

I’m off, you’re on
Life’s short, so long

I’m off, you’re on
Life’s short, so long

I’m off, you’re on
Life’s short, so long

I’m off, you’re on
Life’s short, so long

I’m off, you’re on
Life’s short, so long

I’m off, you’re on
Life’s short, so long
