Complaint

Went to work on Monday
it was Teusday when I got home
don’t leave much time for sleepin’
and no time to roam
By this time tomorrow
it’ll be this time again
and I’ll still be sitting here
trying to remember when

I wasn’t kind of tired
of wanting something real
something I can sink my tooth in
something I can feel
magic is as magic does
when it don’t it ain’t
missing all the magic
is an old man’s complaint

Aladdin without the Genie
Pan without Tinkerbelle
Harry without Hogwarts
wouldn’t be a story to tell
An apostle without the Spirit
a poet without a Muse
feels just like a firecracker
with a soggy fuse.

Getting kind of tired
of wanting something real
something I can sink my tooth in
something I can feel
magic is as magic does
and when it don’t, it ain’t
missing all the magic
is an old man’s complaint
