The Jayhawks - Martin's Song lyrics

(Olson) Gunflint Music BMI

He's only six years old, that old killer died.
Put him down in a great big hole, I fill it up all the time.
See the buildings rise up to the sky, parking meters, traffic cops.
You'd best watch your record son, they'll come and lock you up.

Chorus:
I been working all night.
I go long into the day.
You got much money now.
Got the time ahead, you got the time ahead to pay

Smoke and lightning, dressed to kill.
Don't talk to strangers, girl take your pill
Forty years of sudden death, the acid rain is falling on my head
Bush raids (abortion rates?) on the rise, doctors working overtime.
Too much of a good thing not enough, stepping stones, building blocks

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

Cause, I been working all night.
I go along into the day.
You got much money.
Got the time ahead, you got the time ahead to pay
