But Wait, There's More

To Do:


  • Yoga class
  • Pick up Car
  • Laundry
  • Pay Bills
  • Buy Cat food
  • Purchase bulk sizes of feminine hygiene products, condoms, and chocolate






All the while humming Talking Heads......

You may find yourself living in a Pleasant Suburban Town
You may find yourself in another part of your mind
You may find yourself behind the wheel of a fuel efficient automobile
You may find yourself in a hormone filled house, with hormone filled teens
You may ask yourself, what the f*#% have I done?

Letting the days go by, let the hormones hold me down
Letting the days go by,  menstrual flowing all around
Into the loo again, after the pads are gone
Once in a lifetime, menstrual flowing all around

You may ask yourself, where did I park that fuel efficient automobile?
You may tell yourself, this is not my Messy Suburban house
You may tell yourself, these are not my hormone filled teens

Letting the days go by, let the hormones hold me down
Letting the days go by, menstrual flowing all around
Into the loo again, after the pads are gone
Once in a lifetime, menstrual flowing all around

Same as it never was, same as it never was, same as it never was, same as it never was
Same as it never was, same as it never was, same as it never was, same as it never was

Sanity dissolving and sanity removing
There is a little sanity at the bottom of the box
Remove the sanity, carry the sanity
Remove the sanity from the bottom of the box

Letting the days go by, let the hormones hold me down
Letting the days go by,  menstrual flowing all around
Into the loo again, after the pads are gone
Once in a lifetime, menstrual flowing all around
Into the store again, into the girly aisle 
Under the pads and plugs, for the flow that's come around
Letting the days go by, into the girly aisle
Once in a lifetime, menstrual flows all around

You may ask yourself, how do I know that helpful clerk?
You may ask yourself, why do these condoms cost so much?
You may ask yourself, am I sane, or am I gone?
You may hear your neighbour say, 'my god, what has she done?'

Letting the days go by, let the hormones hold me down
Letting the days go by, menstrual flowing all around
Into the loo again, after the pads are gone
Once in a lifetime, menstrual flowing all around
Into the store again, into the girly aisle   
Under the pads and plugs, for the flow that's come around
Letting the days go by, into the girly aisle
Once in a lifetime, menstrual flows all around

Same as it never was, same as it never was, same as it never was, same as it never was
Same as it never was, same as it never was, same as it never was, same as it never was

Time it is aging us, time it is after us
Time it is aging us, time it is sagging us
Time it is aging us, time it is after us
Time it is aging us.....

Letting the days go by, letting the days go by, letting the days go by, thrice in a lifetime
Letting the days go by, letting the days go by, letting the days go by, thrice in a lifetime....



and yes, I knew that helpful teenage clerk, from when he was in public school
and yes, my neighbour with different views on raising teenagers saw my mega box of condoms
and yes, I do drive a fuel efficient automobile, live in a messy hormone filled house, and mumble to myself while buying girl products, chocolate and condoms.



the days go by, the days go by, the days go by.....
