It's Simply Now A Matter of When

(It’s Simply Now) A Matter of When

Verse: 	I’m phoning up a lawyer, I can’t take this anymore
the whiskey and the women keep pouring out the door
	You’re staying out ‘til sunrise, then sleeping in till noon
		so you can do your baying by the light of the moon.

Chorus: 	This can’t go on forever
		so I’m through debating whether
		Now it’s no longer if!  
It’s simply now a matter of when.

 Verse: 	I’d wish you’d turbocharge my bed the way you do your car
	 Peeling out the driveway, leaving tread marks on the tar
	 spend the Sabbath watching every pigskin taking flight
 If I speak or interrupt you, then I’m picking one more fight.

Chorus: 	This can’t go on forever
		so I’m through debating whether
		so it’s no longer if! 
It’s simply now a matter of when.

Break: 	Forgive me Lord for thinking what I know to be a sin
  	Yet every single day you see the predicament I’m in

Verse: 	I can’t endure your buddy who shows up here like a slob
		to lubricate your liver while I’m dressing for my job
		You don’t really need a wife, but you sure could use a keeper
		I’m pretty sure that pretty soon you’re meeting with the reaper 

Chorus: 	This can’t go on forever
		so I’m through debating whether
		so it’s no longer if! 
It’s simply now a matter of when.

Break 2: 	But this man has really driven me right over the edge
	Should I end him with a pillow or a twenty pound sledge?

Verse:  	When you think I’m sleeping and you whisper on the phone
Another night is coming when you’ll leave me all alone
Last night, another hussy, just 21 and married twice
You’ve handing out the sugar while you’re sparing me the spice.

Chorus: 	This can’t go on forever
		so I’m through debating whether
		so it’s no longer if! 
It’s simply now a matter of when.


(Spoken):	MAYBE I’LL DO IT TONIGHT!    Finis
