We can’t get enough of the was We can’t get enough of the then Cuz then was then Why should I be something new when I have you Longingly cheering for the me who was me I wish I could be you so I could see What you see, isn’t it pretty? Now is so dreary We can’t get enough of the was We can’t get enough of the then Cuz then was then I will be the was who was You can be the then that was then Pretend, pretend I just can’t pretend that I’d rather be here I can’t pretend that the then wasn’t more fun Wasn’t it more fun Wasn’t it more fun I’ll just give in I’ll just give in And find myself a soft pillow And dream the dreams that have been dreamed

The Garden 04:24
In the garden, from my window You can see their love bloom It is rotten it is poison Fills my heart with gloom I will stop them I will ruin Everything they grow They are rotten they are poison, My thoughts they grow and grow Just like that I can weed out, stomp down Just like that I can scorch the ground I am with them every day now But they don’t know that I know I can see them as they pretend Try to hide their glowy glow Just like that I am your best best friend Just like that I am bitter to the end I’ll plant my poison I’ll plant my poison

Over the Ramtail bridge down by the River Lived a woman named Dolly Cole She’s said to be seen at night in the woods dressed in white Just another Rhode Island ghost Poor Nelly Vaughn no grass grows by her gravestone Where she’s waiting and watching for you Perfectly pleasant if you come to visit Just another Rhode Island ghost Zelma lived all alone in an old farmhouse Frank had died years ago He’d scare away teens who'd drive by late at night to see the headless man chase them with a gun Just another Rhode Island ghost Mercy Brown's grave smells of Roses and perfume if you’re coming to her with a prayer — She died as a teen, thought a vampire They would never let her rest in peace Just another Rhode Island ghost Just another Rhode Island ghost Just another Rhode Island ghost

Driving home to Rhode Island No surprise to find Home is a friend that is lying No friend of mind — Now that I’ve been forsaken No contenders to weigh in Lonely are hearts and they’re breaking Away — Guess we all just want someone to love Maybe we all just want someone to love Grab your keys to the wagon Any road with no baggage How did I get to this dead end Again? Guess we all just want someone to love Maybe we all just need someone to love And then Chris met Jefferson Who, while shoveling snow, wrote a song for Chris About her home state of Rhode Island And Chris began to think differently For they were in love And so, on this day, driving into Providence, Chris sang out: It’s a great day in Rhode Island! A great day in Rhode Island!

Well I’m not known to be shy I’ll tell you the who, what & why But I was taken by surprise The night Joan Anderman got me high I said a lot and I said it wrong Her marijuana was too strong She said, Just give it a little try That’s how Joan Anderman got me high Well I don’t like feeling out of control And I don’t like being that guy who can’t stop smiling And I don’t like hearing that nice guys finish last, That the past is in the past, And that I should make my music for free and be happy Well you can suck my dick And my clit But back to Joan Anderman getting me high Dan Zedek heard a diatribe But I was just giving a pep-talk And then my mouth tasted like chalk I’d taken a Philadelphia drag Chris Toppin raised a red flag She laughed so hard she started to cry The night Joan Anderman got me high

Rhode Island 04:00
It’s the smallest state in the Union but one of the most densely populated — It’s not really an island but it was first founded as one — It was the first colony to declare independence from Britain and my baby’s from there — So let’s go to Rhode Island baby That’s where you’re from You can take me around to the places You left when you were young Let’s find a good bar my love Open up the past Talk about how grateful we are We found each other at last There was a small nuclear explosion there in the ’60s — They make lots of toys in Pawtucket but for some reason cap guns are illegal — H.P. Lovecraft, Ruth Buzzi & Chris Toppin are from there — So let’s go to Rhode Island baby It just makes sense I’m your Roger Williams baby, And you’re my providence Let’s party in the trailer park Where you grew up We’ll shower the place with our love, Have ’em drinking from our loving cup There was Chalk Man always coming around with his dog and doling out homemade chalk to the kiddies — There was the Trojan Tent where Miss B. danced suggestively to “Brick House” — Marilyn Chambers, Cormac McCarthy, and Tanya Donelly are from there - Let’s go to Rhode Island baby Cianci was mayor Never lost an election But went to jail and left his hair Let’s go to Rhode Island baby It’s where you’re from You can take me around to the places You left when you were young
