Mainline Prosperity Blues Lyrics, Norm & Mimi Farina, 1964
Good morning, teaspoon
Teaspoon give me back my brain
You don't look the same
And good morning, sweet companion
Pardon me if I've forgotten your name.
Well I know the sun is shining
I believe it 'cause the shades are down
And I know the nighttime's over
Honey, nothing else could make that sound
And I know you won't be moving
Pardon me if I just hang around.
Well, society is rolling
Got to drive above a certain speed
Gonna get you in a wild stampede
Well, companion, you'll forgive me
If I seem unwilling to succeed.
Now efficiency's the by-word
Everybody get to work on time
There ain't no unemployment
I believe I'm going to lose my mind
I'm listed on the censusBut I think I'm going to just resign.
Well, I'm only just a pillow, honey
And I belong in bed
I need a little soothing
Something soothing, kind of mellow for my head
They say I could be productive
But I think I'll just recline right here instead.
