So this is the new year And I don't feel any different The clanking of crystal Explosions off in the distance, in the distance
So this is the new year And I have no resolutions It's self-assigned penance For problems with easy solutions
So everybody put your best suit or dress on Let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once Lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn As thirty dialogues bleed into one I wish the world was flat like the old days Then I could travel just by folding a map No more airplanes, or speed trains, or freeways There'd be no distance that could hold us back. There'd be no distance that could hold us back
