Can't Stop The Music

Monday and Tuesday
same ol alarm ring rings
silver cans clank and
wheels peal down roads unseen
the fridge is humming
the coffee is babbling
a neighbor's dog barks
a train rolls over tracks unseen

I can tune out the train
I can sleep through alarms
If I wait
I know that dog will go inside

But I can't-can't stop-stop-stop
Bda ba bada

Wednesday and Thursday
flashing phones ring ring and
car alarms blare
and sirens are screaming
echoes of strangers
a chorus of voices
in high and low ranges

I can tune out the phones
Tolerate the alarms
If I wait
I know those screams will pass me by

But I can't-can't stop-stop-stop
No I can't-can't stop

Whoa oh
Whoa oh
Whoa oh
Nothing but music

I can tune out tvs
Sleep through alarms
Forget about the cars
And while I wait
Friday will march on by

But I can't-can't stop-stop-stop
No I can't-can't stop
I can't stop-stop-can't stop
can't stop
No, No I can't stop-stop
can't stop-can't stop the music in me
