lyrics

I can hear my neighbor practicing
Do You Hear the People Sing
But I can’t seem to focus on
A single goddamn thing

It seems that all my friends
Have got the whole thing figured out
But I can’t even bring myself
To take the garbage out

CHORUS:
Take the garbage out
Take the garbage out
Won’t throw a coat on over pj’s, put on a pair of boots
And take the garbage out

Well it’s cold here in Chicago
The whole city’s gone insane
And I can’t even go outside
Or someone calls my name

I just wanna buy a coffee
That don’t come with sauerkraut
But I guess I’m on the wrong street
So I take the garbage out

Take the garbage out
Take the garbage out

And take the garbage out

SOLO

Well it’s goin on 2:30
And I’m ready to start my day
I go and cash my paycheck
And I blow it all away

The water’s turned to whiskey
My coffee’s a coffee stout
I’m gonna get too liquored up
To take the garbage out

Throw a coat on over pj’s
I don’t have much spirit these days
Cut me up and cook me three ways
Then put on a pair of boots and take this garbage out
