Hey Friends, I'm Blowing Into Town

lyrics

Hey friends, I’m blowing into town
The wind’s coming up and it’s going to get busy
Like a 19th Century Doris Day, like a a gusty Thin Lizzy

And hey, I’ve never been a Mennonite
(He doesn’t dress as well as one)
I just read a book by Miriam Toews
(Sounds like his idea of fun)
Hey friends, I’m blowing into town

Hey friends, I’m coming back next week
And we all know how this is going to go
16 hours of every day set aside for sleep
Which leaves us with a good 8 hours of sitting around at home

And hey, I’ve never been an Anchorite
(He lived in a church for ten years, but anyway)
I wasn’t bricked in, and I left the house
Sometimes once each day
Hey friends, I’m blowing into town

Hey friends, I’m blowing into town
Hey friends, I’m blowing into town
Let me know if you want to walk 10 or 20k
Or hang out in a public park and listen to bats just after dark
Or spend the morning eating hollandaise
Until we fall into a daze
And then we spend the afternoon
Watching Naked and Afraid
Hey friends, I’m blowing into town
