Lyrics

Lost Cause

Back to all the words

Grandma is up a tree
Waiting for the rapture
I guess I should mention
She’s completely nude
She’s up there waiting
For her Lord and Savior to return
She shed her earthly garments
She thinks she’s wearing her heavenly raiments 
Grandma is up a tree
With absent minded zealotry
I guess you could say
She’s a real lost cause

Lost cause, cause
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause
It’s lost cause 
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause

I’m in a band
Waiting for the noise to begin
I got an audience of one
It’s just lonely old me
When you play the kind of music
That not many people want to hear
You can’t be surprised 
When there aren’t many ears
Well, I’m in a band
And we play weird folk music
I guess you could say
It’s a real lost cause

Lost cause, cause
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause
It’s lost cause 
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause

Old Uncle Leroy
He’s in the garage having church
See, he met a girl, went to some meetings
And changed some things
Don’t think for a second 
That he’s fooling anybody
It’s the same old bottle
With a different label
Old Uncle Leroy
Is in the garage drinking his sacraments
And I guess you could say
He’s a real lost cause

Lost cause, cause
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause
It’s lost cause 
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause

I guess we are all
Like ducks sitting on the water
Floating steady, nipping at bugs
Enjoying every kind of weather
But underneath it all
We’re kicking just as fast as we can
We’re in a great big hurry
Even if we’re already there
So lace up your running shoes
And plop right down in the grass
If you got somewhere better to be
Then it’s a real lost cause

Lost cause, cause
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause
It’s lost cause 
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause
Lost cause, cause
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause
It’s lost cause 
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause
Lost cause, cause
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause
It’s lost cause 
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause
Lost cause, cause
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause
It’s lost cause 
It’s a lost cause
Lost cause
