GETTING THE PAPER
by Britt K. Arnesen

To the mailbox get the paper
Headlines, read the rest later
Dermot writes 'bout the weather
Her coffee cup drinks in it all

The schoolbus finds the children
Sidewalk finds the pigeons
Cell phone finds her busy
Her true love don't find her at all

On a holiday she gets festive
On her birthday she gets presents
At the party she'll play dress up
But her true love won't notice at all

The schoolbus finds the children
Sidewalk finds the pigeons
Cell phone finds her busy
Her true love don't find her at all

On the website she's a writer
Get to know her there's no denying
That woman's made of lightning
But her true love never put up his rod

The schoolbus finds the children
Sidewalk finds the pigeons
Cell phone finds her busy
Her true love don't find her at all
Her true love won't give her a call
Her true love's out walking his dog
