Loudon Wainwright III - Muse Blues lyrics

I went down to the library, you know the big one way downtown
I went down to the library, you know the big one way downtown
I pulled out my spiral notebook and my scripto pencil
These, these, these are the words that I did put down

I’m a dud-fire cracker, I ain’t got any fuse
I ain’t got no inspiration since I lost my muse
I’m a table with two legs, I’m a spider with five
I’m going down, slow muse, when will you arrive?

Oh muse, where are you?
Oh muse, where are you?
You know I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
I don’t know what to do

I went to the mountain and the desert too
I was there ladies so where were you
I’m a flattened out wave, I ain’t got any curl
I’m an empty old oyster, I ain’t got any pearl

Muse, where are you?
Oh muse, where are you?
You know I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
I don’t know what to do

Sit up late, stay up wait
It’s a rule of thumb she’s got to come
Sit up late, stay up wait
It’s a rule of thumb she’s got to come

I take lots of cold showers and I go for long walks
I wait for a pitch but the fickle bitch barks
Took a shot of whiskey and a snort of cocaine
Opened up my head and stuck electrodes in my brain

Oh muse, where are you?
Where are you muse, oh where are you?
You know I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
I don’t know what to do
