Five Best...Songs from Closing Time


#5. "Rosie"

Well I'm sitting on a windowsill, blowing my horn
Nobody's up except the moon and me,
And a lazy old tomcat on a midnight spree
All that you left me was a melody.


#4. "Ol' 55"

And my time went so quickly, I went lickety-splickly
Out to my old '55
As I pulled away slowly, feeling so holy,
God knows, I was feeling alive.


#3. "Martha"

And those were the days of roses, poetry and prose
And Martha all I had was you and all you had was me.
There was no tomorrows, we'd packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day.


#2. "Old Shoes (& Picture Postcards)"

I can see by your eyes, it's time now to go
So I'll leave you to cry in the rain,
Though I held in my hand, the key to all joy
Honey my heart was not born to be tamed.


#1. "I Hope That I Don't Fall in Love With You"

Well I hope that I don't fall in love with you
'Cause falling in love just makes me blue,
Well the music plays and you display your heart for me to see,
I had a beer and now I hear you calling out for me
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you
