Austin Lounge Lizards — Mourning Edition lyrics

(Hank Card/Conrad Deisler
The dollar is falling on the japanese market
The Nikei industrial average is shooting up like a rocket
Nervous investors satisfying their craving for yen
And no one is certain which state the economy's in
And now I am waking; now I'm in the shower
And here are the headlines at ten 'til the hour
Gold prices are rising in Paris and London they say
The precious metal is having a wonderful day
And now it is eight; every day it seems later
Can this be my fate? Will there be nothing greater?
I go to the office and back on the freeway and then
I wake up in the morning to the voice of Bob Edwards again
