The Lyrics

Waitin’ for a ray of sun
It’s been raining, think the ark might come
Watching the drops again
Think I hear ‘em on the roof top tin

I’m sittin’ on the couch for the day
Watchin’ the clouds float my way
I’m just sittin’ on the couch for the day
Keepin’ time

I woke up cold, a bit sore
Clock made known its hateful way
My bare feet touchin’ the floor boards
And felt the morning had a touch of gray

So, I’m just gon’ sit on the couch for the day
Watchin’ the sky fill with rain
I’m sittin’ on the couch for the day
Killin' time

Seems like cushion’s made a cage
Any time days demand the rain
I got food with old blanket, books, and the tube
Now I guess I’ll refrain from strain

Sittin’ here watchin’ the storm
And this, I confess, is comfy and warm
Ten thousand drops or more
And I think my time has slowed, down

So, I’m just gon’ lay on the couch for the day
Seein’ my mind’s gone to play
I’m layin’ on the couch for the day
Think it’s fine.
