My favorite lounge doesn't make a goddamn sound
silent movies showing, ice and drizzle blowing

I'll have the clams and the french fries ma'am
that's all I have by way of a plan
meandering and dawdling are up next
in this ambitious quest

My favorite lounge chased away the nearest town
every hour is happy hour for introversion in the round

hail fellow quite well met
now move along and write your sonnet
I'm reading last week's funnies front to back
then I'll step up and slack

And it's true I got a problem with you
we could take it outside but this ice floe isn't all that wide
precious illusion of space and the absence of the human race
how bout another round of an hour without sound
and we can knock it down

my favorite lounge is painted tundra gray and pretty well fades in
to a landscape far from anything resembling progress
ice fishing from the stage where only light beams play
trombone on anchorite night
shark fry on Catholic night
no bluegrass any night
this berg's getting smaller every day
