    "Flyswatter/Ice Water Blues (Monte Trenckmann's Blu" Lyrics

    Lyle Lovett


    Honey, put down that flyswatter
    And pour me some ice water
    And would you bring me my hammer
    And could you find me some nails
    For soon I'll be going
    To work for this living
    And with you here to guide me
    Then I cannot fail.

    The morning it stumbles

    Right in through the window
    And this getting up early
    Gets old anyway
    And if you listen close dear
    The crying that you hear
    Is the nighttime lamenting
    The start of the day.

    And it's hotter than concrete
    In July in Houston
    And it'll get worse here
    Before it turns nice
    But old Tink's in the backyard
    And I swear that boy's so smart
    He's got everything ready
    So we'll be all right.

    So honey put down that flyswatter
    And pour me some ice water
    And though I'll soon be going
    Well I haven't gone yet
    So come stand here beside me
    And hold my hand gently
    And tell me do you remember
    The first time we met...
