Sleepy days in Marin. Charge everything to the room.


I don't know why the rich girls go to the country
what you sell to a rich girl you reap tenfold
spend a day at the flicks get a night at the vineyard
but I don't know why, I don't know why

see those laugh lines on their faces they're getting older
buying sandals though the season's getting colder
cause you don't know what they been through
you buy them drinks, they tell you true
what they need and what they'll do just to get it right

I don't know why your daddy wants to live in the country
selling dope to the rich kids good as gold
dumped his shares at the right time bought him a Cessna
but I don't know why, I don't know why

cause he won't get me at the counter to make his coffee
no he won't get me in the corner to write his copy
yeah you can tell him that we're through
I'll buy you drinks, you tell me true
what you need and what you'll do just to get it

didn't want to live in the city
now you want to go to the country
didn't want to live in the city
why you want to go?
