Same Old Thing

You ask me how I’m doing
Well, it’s been the same old thing
Just got back from Va-Ca in C.A.
Plannin’ another getaway in the Spring

My tennis has gotten rather sloppy
‘n marriage has been intense
I’ve recently taken up collectin’ pens
‘n tryin’ to find a good color for our fence

Same Old Thing
Same Old Thing
Same Old Car Keys
Same Old Wedding Ring
Man, it’s the same old thing

Upgraded the membership at the Country Club
I heard that’s the way to join the Poker League
Sometimes I go out slumming on a Saturday night
then on Sunday, fight a case of fatigue

I make a mean Bloody Mary and I can stock beer
Our guests call the champagne “shampoo”
My wife is working on the summer cabin
‘n perfectin’ a new recipe for Swiss Fondue

I’ve been hangin’ with the old boy network
‘n readin’ up on some Garry Trudeau
The Mrs. had my my pipe and shirts monogrammed
‘n our dog Muffy was recently named Best In Show

Same Old Thing
Same Old Thing
Same Old Car Keys
Same Old Wedding Ring
Man, it’s the same old thing

Last week, I was ridin’ the porcelain Honda
Must have been the crab cakes I ate last week
The Volvo’s been in the shop for at least a month
At my wife’s friend’s wedding, I’m gonna speak

I go bird watching every Wednesday afternoon
and have a good collection of store catalogs
I’m really proud of the pond we have out back
It’s filled with frogs, minnows, and polliwogs

Same Old Thing
Same Old Thing
Same Old Car Keys
Same Old Wedding Ring
Man, it’s the same old thing
What about you?
Good for you old chap!
Now if you’d please excuse me
I’ve gotta go take my daily nap

Now if you’d please excuse me
I’ve gotta go take my daily nap.
