Lyrics for the Day -Barrier Reef

Lots of great Old 97’s songs. Hadn’t heard this one for awhile until it was played on The Loft (SiriusXM) today.

The Empty Bottle was half empty
Tide was low, and I was thirsty
Saw her sittin’ at the bar
Well you know how some girls are
Always makin’ eyes
Well she wasn’t makin’ eyes
So I sidled up beside her
Settled down and shouted, Hi there
My name’s Stewart Ransom Miller
I’m a serial lady-killer
She said, I’m already dead
That’s exactly what she said
So we tripped the lights fantastic
We was both made of elastic
Midnight came and midnight went
And I though I was the President
She said, Do you have a car
And I said, Do I have a car

What’s so great
About the Barrier Reef
What’s so fine
About art
What’s so good
About a good times van
When you’re working on a broken
Working on a broken
Working on a broken man
When you’re working on a broken
Working on a broken
Working on a broken man

My heart wasn’t in it
Not for one single minute
I went through the motions with her
Her on top and me on liquor
Didn’t do no good
Well I didn’t think it would

What’s so great
About the Barrier Reef
Yeah what’s so fine about art
What’s so good
About a good times van
When you’re working on a broken
Working on a broken
Working on a broken man
When you’re working on a broken
Working on a broken
Working on a broken man
When you’re working on a broken
Working on a broken
Working on a broken man
