I hate My Trench Coat

I have to wear a trench coat To cover suit and tie I hate that green old trench coat I really cannot lie. I hate the way it bags and sags And flips and flaps around The way the belt comes loose And drags along the ground That stupid belt just won’t stay put No matter how it’s tied It slips and snakes and sticks in doors Oh that I can’t abide When I get into my car And make my way to work Half the coat sticks out the door Soaked in mud and dirt I’m gonna ditch that green old coat A truer wish I’ve never felt. Maybe buy a gray or tan Definitely without a belt.
