Chant For Dark Hours

by
 Some men, some men
Cannot pass a
Book shop.
(Lady, make your mind up, and wait your life away.
) Some men, some men Cannot pass a Crap game.
(He said he'd come at moonrise, and here's another day!) Some men, some men Cannot pass a Bar-room.
(Wait about, and hang about, and that's the way it goes.
) Some men, some men Cannot pass a Woman.
(Heaven never send me another one of those!) Some men, some men Cannot pass a Golf course.
(Read a book, and sew a seam, and slumber if you can.
) Some men, some men Cannot pass a Haberdasher's.
(All your life you wait around for some damn man!)
