Default Yesterday Morning


Yesterday morning volunteered my time,
From a quarter past eight to a half past nine,
Woke up early, I was feelin' fine,
From a quarter past eight to a half past nine,
A half past nine,
A half past nine,
We'll make that county line,
After a quarter past eight and a half past nine,

Shots rang out, heard sirens outside,
From a quarter past eight to a half past nine,
Teller asked the manager to abide,
From a quarter past eight to a half past nine,
A half past nine,
A half past nine,
We'll make that county line,
After a quarter past eight and a half past nine,

Tell my baby, I’m on my way,
Meet her at a quarter past nine today,
Once we get away clean, cross the county line,
After a quarter past eight and a half past nine

Ol’ Jim had his own plan on his mind,
From a quarter past eight to a half past nine,
Ol’ Jim was killed and left behind,
From a quarter past eight to a half past nine,
A half past nine,
A half past nine,
We'll make that county line,
After a quarter past eight and a half past nine,

Tell my baby, I’m on my way,
Meet her at a quarter past nine today,
Got away clean, cross the county line,
After a quarter past eight and a half past nine.

The alien imagined this being sung by the likes of
Bob Dylan or Johnny Cash, then it hit him. "No, not them, The national!"
