lyrics

When it’s hard / When the chips are down
When they set you up / to look like a clown
Don’t despair

Cuz there’s a place / where I go
To rest my head / ease my woes
A reprieve from the storm
Where it’s soft and oh so warm

A vestibule where I confess
The deeds I’ve done and my regrets
And all my troubles are redressed
When I dry my tears on Gil Fleischman’s sister’s chest

She don’t mind / That I’m not a mensh
I’m just a second stringer / who never gets called off of the bench
But when I’m stuck atop that wall
She’s the spot I long to fall
The landing pad for when I crash
The finish line to which I dash

Even if I fail that test
If nothing comes of all my best
All my woes I’ll lay to rest
When I dry my tears on Gil Fleischman’s sister’s chest

Peggy, you’re the one for me
In grade-school I was blind
But now I’m old and I can see
You’re much larger than other woman
But there’s more room there to dry my tears

You’re maybe not Fulbright scholar
But what I needs right beneath your collar
A mohair covered sanctuary
Waiting there for me

Even if I fail that test
If nothing comes of all my best
All my woes I’ll lay to rest
Cuz I’ll be cryin’ Ya, I’ll be cryin’ my eyes

Even if I fail that test
If I’m rebuked and sent to death
I’ll heave a sigh with my last breath
Cuz I’ll be cryin on Gil Fleischman’s sister’s chest
