somewhere over the rainbow it’s christmas

eve   &    i’m here   sitting at the bar   at

anacone’s    listening to the quiet

jazz on the jukebox  cuz  i don’t wanna

go home  well  not yet anyway  not yet

just  wanna  sit  here  a  little  while

longer  & think & drink & think & drink

i remember going to midnight mass

with my family when i was a kid

we would party all night long   eat & drink

twenty-four-seven like they say today

but not superficial like today

oh how i miss my grandparents & the

old ways lost somewhere over the rainbow
