Marking Time

Post by greg parker on Sun 05 Feb 2012, 2:44 pm

From the early '80s when the West Indies (AKA "The Windies") were still a force in world cricket... it is a personal favorite among my scribblings...

MARKING TIME

Tom Waits on the stereo
Jim Beam in my hand
Cricket on the TV
Trouble in the stands

But I got this lady on my mind
Time full ahead
Don't know how to fill the gulf
So I fill my glass instead

Well there's a big fat world out there somewhere
Just spinning in and out of light
And it's the shadows that this makes I'd like to chase
If I weren't too busy marking time

Watch the Windies take another wicket
As Tom serenades his Jersey Girl
And everything comes to life
As these images unfurl

But I got this lady on my mind
Time tickin' in my brain
Don't know what to do
So I fill my glass again

Well there's a big fat world out there somewhere
Just spinning in and out of light
And it's the shadows that this makes I'd like to chase
If I weren't too busy marking time

Now the cricket makes way for an ad
As Tom takes her on all the rides
And somehow it all makes sense
Just like the risin' of the tides

But I got this lady on my mind
Time movin' in a warp
Don't know how to break on through
So I drink another quart

Well there's a big fat world out there somewhere
Just spinning in and out of light
And it's the shadows that this makes I'd like to chase
If I weren't too busy marking time

Well there's a big fat world out there somewhere
Just spinning in and out of light
And it's the shadows that this makes I'd like to chase
If I weren't too busy marking time
