lyrics

Five O'clock Face

You're never happy when you're alone
Just love to be with your husband Tom
He shelters and gently smothers you
Relaxing in a cheerful country home

You both work together preserving your love
Beginning to mellow with age
All you ask of each other is lasting security
Praying to that man above

Strong Mr. Cleaver is your sweet dream
At five o'clock you watch his face
Yes it's a model house and rooms without ceilings

When your husband dies
Your married friends scatter like flies
You'll watch late night movies all alone
To sleep with that talking TV on
In a big warm bed without your Tom
Tom where are you?
Tom, Tom, where are you?

Sun Stroke

In my garden I have such a pretty garden
Where I come from
From the land of hoes and rakes
I will clean
I will clean and make it nice

Look, the sun!
Makes me squint and see the light
I must die
No one wants me
No one loves me
