by Tennessee Williams
My chair rock-rocks by the door all day
But nobody ever stops my way,
Nobody ever stops by my way.
My teef chaw-chaw on an old ham bone an’
I do the dishes all alone,
I do the dishes all by my lone.
My feet clop-clop on the hardwood floor ‘cause
I won’t buy love at the hardware store,
I don’t want love from the mercantile store.
Now the clock tick-tocks by my single bed while
the moon looks down on my sleepless head,
While the moon grins down at an ole fool’s head.
