The Ballad of The Dime Store Greaser and The Blonde Mona Lisa - Blue Rodeo

As the seconds are ticking

In the corner of her eye

 

Nothing comes as fast

As a glib reply

Like a kid who's tired

Of a busted old toy

The pleasure's worn thin

So she makes a little extra noise

 

So the dime store greaser

And the blonde Mona Lisa

 

Twist on smiles

Just to please each other

Until one of them

Finds that someone new

Well the other one

Is just going to have to do

 

Sometimes you get what you want

 

So be careful what you ask for

Remember what you got

Tossing her pennies

In the wishing well

 

Mona Lisa reaches over

For the sleeping pills

 

Like a jerk that butts

Into the front of the line

 

She's got her reasons

And he don't mind

Absence is supposed to make

The heart grow fonder

 

He's hoping her vacation

Lasts a little bit longer

 

And they both have their tickets

For the promised land

Still they don't appreciate what they have

They can't see what's right

In front of their eyes

They've been looking so long

They finally went blind

 

And they lost

 

What was right

 

In front of their eyes
