Old Friends


I saw you at the railway station
There had been a cancelation
You were smoking cigarettes alone
I walked up and said hello, I lost my wife two days ago
You shand and said Francis was your name
And you had a hat
And I had a hat
Mmm, we both had hats
And my wife was dead
And your wife was dead
Shit happens, Francis said
Francis said it's five o'clock
How about we find a rock and throw at some cars from the bridge
I laughed and said that sounds like fun
We walked into the setting sun
And Francis said "I'm aiming at the kids"
And he threw a rock
So I threw a rock
We both put some gravel in a sock
And he threw the sock, I said we should stop
He smiled at me, then threw a rock in a sock
We snuck down to the local farm
And there we opened up the barn
To set the horses free and watch them run
The moon was extra bright that night
The horses in the pale moonlight
"Watch this" Francis said, and pulled his gun
And he shot a horse
So I shot a horse
Francis choked a chicken with his hands
But watching them die, he started to cry
"I'm bored" Francis said, let's steal a car
Oh, Margaret, Oh Margaret
Don't you worry bout' me now
I'm doing just fine on my own
There are other things to laugh than your soft skin against mine
And Francis is helping me move on
I'm moving on
Life's a bitch, a wise man said
No matter what, you end up dead
And all that you can wish for is a friend
So pour another glass of wine
With Francis shoulder touching mine
I 'll stay right here until the bitter end
And you have a hat
And I have a hat
Mmm, we both have a hat
And your wife is dead
And my wife is dead
Here's to life, Francis said
Here's to life, Francis said
Here's to life, Francis said
