out there on the summer lawn
there's the neighbor's son
his name is Paul and he's
come on by for dinner

on the kitchen floor
back behind the door
the bird dog Bob ain't
getting any thinner

Carolyn wipes off some dishes
says something about her wishes
then her hands hold biscuits
wrapped in cellophane

and outside Jack joins Paul
the roadside grass is tall
out o'er the fields
the sky, it looks like rain

each body is a temple
but y'know it's not that simple
'cause the door is known to open
once the sun goes down

a sad bulb shines out in the night
on the porch, they watch the fight
their bellies full of bacon
their minds alive

the sweet science of fist to face
as the ghosts surround the place
and their featherweight
gets knocked out in round five

eat some supper, boy
better eat up your beans, boy

people from all over town
come on over to the sound
of a party in the country
a bottle and some dancing girls

and death is everyone's last name
but don't let your face hang
don't let your arms fall
you're alive in the modern world
