Father Time

Father Time

The old man sits on the corner
Trying to figure it out
Father time and too much wine
Robbed him of his youth

Hobos don’ have homes
And always wear old shoes
Stand in soup kitchens lines
With the solitary blues

And it’s candy for the children
Wine for the bums
School bells ring in the afternoon
Remind him of his chums

Mabel, Mabel, Mabel
How could it com to this
I still remember you
And long for your loving kiss

Memories find lined paper
Leaking from my pen
Coffee from a paper cup
Alone in the morning again

And it’s candy for the children
Wine for the bums
School bells ring in the afternoon
Remind him of his chums
