    Hi, how are you?
    Every morning he got up
    Dreading each moment he had to be awake
    He'd look at the floor, scribble on gum wrappers
    He never found a better way to joke around
    The clock would tick and time would slow
    There wasn't anywhere he wouldn't go
    To avoid having to see anyone
    He'd sit in a chair and lean against a wall
    But that didn't seem to matter much at all
    But late at night he had a savior
    In his sleep, in his dreams
    She came to him and she said
    "Poor you, poor you
    No one understands you
    Poor you, poor you"
    And every word that everyone would say
    Got mumbled up in his head
    Like mumble-jumble and everywhere he went
    It seemed like everyone was saying to him,
    "Blah blah blah"
    But late at night, he had a mistress
    In his dreams, in his sleep
    And she would say "poor you, poor you"
    No one understands you
    Poor you"
    This story, though, not well told
    Is not that old
    It's not that funny, it's not that great
    But I know it to be true
    Because late at night, I have an angel
    In my dreams, in my sleep
    And as she runs her fingers through my hair
    As I lay on her lap
    And she says, "poor you, poor you
    No one understands you, poor you
    Poor you"
