about

lyrics

He sits there grey and statue-like

Still as stone and not so bright

But he lays down the law

And pulls the reigns so tight



His voice is cold and thick with hate

As I drop my pickle to the plate

Like lowering my sword

And we continue our debate



One more round again

Will I go down again

Battling uncle lobster eyes

Up against his oyster eyes

Who will be the winner

Will there ever be a winner

Will there ever be a winner of this fight



He says to me “You must be insane…

What on earth has gone wrong in your brain?

You talk to yourself and play solitaire

But we know you’ve been drinking again”



I say “It’s the road or rehab for me…

I’ll take to the road and then you’ll see

That I don’t need your tough love decree

Please leave me alone and let me be free”



One more round again

Will I go down again

Battling uncle lobster eyes

Up against his oyster eyes

Who will be the winner

Will there ever be a winner

Will there ever be a winner of this fight



Spoken: Then he raises his head and …Here we go….



One more round again

Will I go down again

Battling uncle lobster eyes

Up against his oyster eyes

Who will be the winner

Will I ever be a winner

Will there ever be a winner of this fight
Will there ever be a winner of this fight

about

The Bushwick Book Club Brooklyn, New York

We started in January 2009 playing songs written in response to Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions. We haven't stopped since. We've written & performed songs inspired by everything from "On The Origin of Species" to Dr. Seuss to Raymond Carver. There are BBCs popping up nationwide now. Bushwick Book Club Seattle started in 2010 & is run by Geoff Larson. Our nerdy dare-devilry knows no bounds. ... more
