Lyrics

Oklahoma

I don't have lofty ambitions
I'm just trying to stand up because I've got to take a piss
but my feet feel weak below me
and my hands shake like trees in the wind

maybe I should explain, I saw a doctor for this pain
she said that I would die before the winter came again
but I'm not going down without a fight the like of which
will knock out every light
and burn out every switch in Oklahoma

They tell me there is nothing I can do
there ain't anybody I can sue
I can't write to complain to any board of directors
sometimes things just happen
no matter what you do

I remember how you used to sing those silly songs
like the one about the fringe on the surrey
I regret now that I didn't sing along
I thought I had better things about which to worry

now they all tell me to be strong
but I'd like to take every conversation we ever had
and try to cram them all in this song
and blast it 'till my hearing goes bad

They tell me there is nothing I can do
there ain't anybody I can sue
I can't write to complain to any board of directors
sometimes things just happen
no matter what you do

Oklahoma
where the wind comes sweeping down the plains
I ain't never been there let's go before it's too late
the best things in life never come to those who wait

I don't have lofty ambitions
I'm just trying to stand up because I've got to take a pee
but my feet feel weak below me
and my hands shake like wind through the trees
