a’int my day lyrics – wall of voodoo

chrokee sat on the same barstool
everyday ’til his wife dragged him back.
drinking and talking about the old days,
“they don’t make them anymore like that.”
i did extra work in the movies for so long,
that starring role never camethrough…
horse opera stories were my specialty,
i remember when i met the duke.

oh- it ain’t my day…
oh- it ain’t my day…

now i’m sixty years old
and i sit by the phone,

every night by the light of the soaps
i’ll bet my last dollar
that jock and his sons never once
burned their hands on a rope…

oh- it ain’t my day…
oh- it ain’t my day…

and i’m trying to, dying to,
sit back and see my old face,

oh- it ain’t my day…
oh- it ain’t my day…
