Mainline Prosperity Blues (Richard Farina) Good morning, teaspoon Teaspoon give me back my brain Hello, reflection- You don't look the same And good morning, sweet companion Pardon me if I've forgotten your name. Well I know the sun is shining I believe it 'cause the shades are down And I know the nighttime's over Honey, nothing else could make that sound And I know you won't be moving Pardon me if I just hang around. Well, society is rolling Got to drive above a certain speed Population's exploding Gonna get you in a wild stampede Well, companion, you'll forgive me If I seem unwilling to succeed. Now efficiency's the by-word Everybody get to work on time There ain't no unemployment I believe I'm going to lose my mind I'm listed on the census But I think I'm going to just resign. Well, I'm only just a pillow, honey And I belong in bed I need a little soothing Something soothing, kind of mellow for my head They say I could be productive But I think I'll just recline right here instead. (Repeat First Verse) Copyright 1965 Whitmark Publ. Rec. by Farina on "Reflections in a Crystal Wind" Vanguard VSD-79204 GF Apr98
