lyrics

CEO Blues

La la la la la dee
La la la la la daa

Used to be proud of something
Can't remember what or why
The autumn shore smells like comfort
Sandpipers skitter off and cry

Downtown no longer calls you
Not for business or nasty fun
Handmade shoes go un-walked
In the dark where your suits get hung

Used to be proud of something
Can't remember what or why
But back when you were golden
Your demands were not denied

Sea air hangs damp and heavy
The low sun rusts out the sky
Thank god for very fine whiskey
It holds you tight through the night

La la la la la dee
La la la la la daa

Used to be proud of something
Can't remember what or why
Back in the day you were golden
And your world inspired your pride

Those summer beach house weekends
All the girls you dallied and laid
Do you forget they've grown older
Wouldn't come for you anyway

Used to be proud of something
Can't remember what or why
Only that you once were golden
And have fallen from on high
