Pinhead Gunpowder — Buffalo lyrics

Buffalo once roamed

The great expanse of our country


Now they stand in the sandbox
In the corner of the city

We had our picnics in the park

Watching the bison mope

Once a proud and noble beast
Now the butt of our bad jokes




You saw me off at the station

In your leopard print coat and hat


It was so a cliche we had to laugh

Waving at me as I left


But when the laughter made us sadder

Than the leaving could have had


In a flash I cried
Oh, goodbye girl of mine



When it came time for me to go


The buffalo had the last laugh
Waiting at the gate they sneered
They strut and pranced


How did I know I though

A thing like that


An instant in the distant past
A fling was only fleeting

Meant to end not made to last




You saw me off at the station
In your leopard print coat and hat

It was so a cliche we had to laugh

Waving at me as I left



But when the laughter made us sadder

Than the leaving could have had

In a flash I cried

Goodbye girl, it was a time

What a time a time to remember

Something that good

Can't last forever
But now I wonder if


It might have after all



As the train pulled away, it hit me

What I really would be missing

As laughter could be
Leaving wa not as bitter or sweet
