Lyrics

There's a pecking order at my daytime bar
Where you sit tells everyone just how well-liked you are
I've sat in every stool along the rail
I've risen and I've fallen and been hammered like a nail

Once when I was good I had my seat back in the gloom
Soon enough they wouldn't even let me in the room
Where will I drink now, that I've been told to go?
The sun it pins me like a bug and makes everything slow

If this is the first day of the rest of my life
Then let me sleep all the way through to night
Let me sleep all the way through to night

I got a letter just the other day
The taxman says he's gonna come take everything away
Let him come he'll leave with empty hands
I squandered my possessions and I wore out all my plans

Once I had a place I could stay drinking all day long
My welcome there wore out and now I have to stay at home
My best days are behind me and worse days lie ahead
There's nothing I can say now that would change the way this ends

If this is the first day of the rest of my life
Then let me sleep all the way through to night
Let me sleep all the way through to night


There's a pecking order at my daytime bar
Where you sit tells everyone just how well-liked you are
I've sat in every stool along the rail
I've risen and I've fallen and been hammered like a nail

Once when I was good I had my seat back in the gloom
Soon enough they wouldn't even let me in the room
Where will I drink now, that I've been told to go?
The sun it pins me like a bug and makes everything slow

If this is the first day of the rest of my life
Then let me sleep all the way through to night
Let me sleep all the way through to night
Let me sleep all the way through to night
