lyrics

(Words/music by P.Mark)

Every day that I go through
And every night 's the same thing too
Every day and every night I get the feeling
There's something I missed

Life for all its promise is one big tease
When I think about the way things ought to be
I say hey there goes another thing
That I'll never get

A dollar bill that' s worth more than a dime
A salesman that tells me just what I'm buying
A winning hand that turns up
Just when I get the urge to bet

A dollar jug of wine that really does the trick
A woman that don't work me like a carrot on a stick
Man there goes another thing
That I'll never get

They say good things come to those who wait
But I'm working on limited time
All I'm really shooting for is breaking even once in a while

A TV show that I’d like to see again
A radio that plays a song I can stand
A night on the town that doesn't strap me with the national debt
A Broadway show that leaves me calling for more
A movie that' s worth the price you pay at the door
Man there goes another thing I'll never get

They say good things come to those who wait
But tell me when do the goods arrive?
All I'm really shooting for is breaking even while I'm alive

A state trooper that looks the other way
A county judge who sees the world my way
A presidential race where the man really means what he says
A job that pays me just for being alive
A vacation that lasts until I'm 65
Man there goes another thing I'll never get
