Put It in a Cool Dry Place (Peter Nappa) Well I woke up in the morning The place was such a wreck And I couldn't reach the bathroom Thought I'd better clear the deck I tried to call a lawyer And asked him what to do He referred me to his doctor Who referred me back to you And when you checked the manual You kept inside the case It said, "Put it in a cool dry place." I drove around the city Looking for a room But the only cash we had Was the scent from your perfume When I suggest the mountains You thought it worth a peek But by the time we get there You tell me not to speak It happens all the time When I try to plead my case You say, "Put it is a cool dry place." Cho: I'd be better off without you And I know you think about it too When I say, "I'll get a lawyer." You say, "Don't you remember when?" So then I reconsider And here we go again Each day I go to work 'Cause that's what I have to do You think I'm such a jerk I'd expect no less from you At night when I get home I'm tired and out of sorts You think that all I think about Is what's inside my shorts I crawl into my bed Great expectations on my face You say, "Put it in a cool dry place." I'm tired of all the put downs And all the snide remarks You're a series of explosions When all I want are sparks I need for this to end With my sanity intact You think I'm going crazy On a locomotive track I ask for understanding You can't look me in the face You say, "Put it in a cool dry place." cho: Now I'm looking for revenge For the rotten stinking life From my one time best companion Who then turned into a wife She's sleeping in the kitchen So peaceful and serene My problems now have ended I think you know what I mean The hearse comes to the door And with a grin upon my face I say, "Put her in a cool dry place." music from Traveling Wilburys SOF
