lyrics

It's a week old now and it hasn't aged well
We're back inside the den
We’re getting crazy stirred and days are getting blurry
Until we start it back up again

Do you ever wish the sun would hurry rise
Do you feel a chaffing in your eyes
Will it be Hearts or Rummy Gin
We’ve got to shuffle it up again
You gotta cut the deck

These last two years they took my tongue
All my language words are gone
I can't diagram or lay it down at the slam
I'm all tangled up and woebegone

Do you ever wish the sun would hurry rise
Do you feel a knocking in your eyes
Will it be Hearts or Rummy Gin
We gotta shuffle it up again
Shuffle it up again
Shuffle it up again
You gotta cut the deck

That's how the calendar crumbled
And your cookies all got burned
It's been a bad baking fumble it's the jive in your jungle
But all the same it's now your turn

Do you ever wish the sun would never rise
Do you feel like you’ve been dancing in disguise
Will it be Hearts or Rummy Gin
We gotta shuffle it up again
You got to cut the deck
You better to cut the deck
