I Got A Pillow For You

Yet more BOOMER PATROL for your listening pleasure. This time, it’s a spin on an early ’80s classic by The Romantics.

What I don’t like about you
You tell me nothing but lies
Tell me I’m the lazy one
You are everything I despise, yeah

Keep on whispering in my ear
Tell me all the things I don’t wanna hear
Nothing’s true
What I don’t like about you

What I don’t like about you
You won’t admit what you’ve done
When you go left, right, overnight
Left behind devastation, yeah

Keep on whispering in my ear
Tell me all the things I don’t wanna hear
Nothing’s true
What I don’t like about you

What I don’t like about you
You won’t admit that you’re through
Never gonna let it go
Know that I’ll be coming for you, yeah

Keep on whispering in your ear
Tell you all the things you don’t wanna hear
Cos it’s true
I got a pillow for you

THE BOOMER ON THE INSIDE

Remember nineteen sixty-five
Our season in the sun
It was the time to be alive
And then the sun went down

So where do I proceed from here?
Betrayed by age and yesteryear
The curse I can no longer hide
My generation’s pride

Nevertheless
I must confess
I deserve this lonely fate

I wish I could forget
I can’t escape my debt
To all the world I cast aside
A Boomer on the inside
And when the Reaper calls
There is no wherewithal to hide
And I can no longer deny
The Boomer on the inside

Identity is all I know
Surrounded by lost souls
Despite their absence I can hear
Voices dead and gone

Now I have nothing left but fear
The world I knew has disappeared
The curse I can no longer hide
My generation’s pride

And even so
I finally know
I deserve to fade away

I wish I could forget
I can’t escape my debt
For all the reasons I complied
A Boomer on the inside
And when the Reaper calls
There is no wherewithal to hide
And I can no longer deny
The Boomer on the inside

Lost in time and disappeared
Dying alone and unrevered
My generation fades away
A forgotten yesterday

I wish I could forget
I can’t escape my debt
For all the sins that I denied
A Boomer on the inside
And when the Reaper calls
There is no wherewithal to hide
And I can no longer deny
The Boomer on the inside

BOOMER PATROL – It’s Time to Go

The latest Boomer Patrol is live and kicking.

IT’S TIME TO GO

Pillows are the gift to the Boomer

The Reaper’s got ‘em everywhere.

He cleared the floors, unlocked the doors, lights out

And you can save the prayer.

You saw the Reaper’s hood and understood

And your heart just got to the point it’s gonna blow.

You were doing your best ’till the punch in the chest

And the Reaper said there’s something you should know.

He said Boomer now it’s time to go

Boomer now it’s time to go

Boomer now it’s time to go

Time’s up now it’s time to go

Now everybody down with a cushion

And they’re starting the pushing

And it’s a final solution

And everybody cool

Your heart rate’s getting fast, your time is past

And you can feel the flow

All you wanna do is make it stop

So you call the docs, but the docs they never show

The Reaper sees your fear, so pulls you near

Says son, there’s something you ought to know.

He said time ceases its marches at the pearly arches

And that’s what we’re here for.

He said Boomer now it’s time to go

Boomer now it’s time to go

Boomer now it’s time to go

Time’s up now I told you so

Now everybody down with a cushion

And they’re starting the pushing

And it’s a final solution

And everybody cool

The Reaper’s gonna find you Boomer

He doesn’t have a sense of humor

Reaper is the pillow, the pillow is the Reaper’s scythe
