This pairing of songs, titled Extra Credit, is intended as a supplement to the full-length album, The Rhymer/Educator Project.
Woke up in a rush today, sun light add a sense of the urgency, when I heard her say rather hushedly, that she earnestly wish that I could stay (whoa-oh!), checked the time on my phone, grown, wish I had schedule I could own, but I'm torn by the conflict, leave her alone, it's The Clash now should I stay or should I go? Oh no! This decision, decision, every second with it is a second I'm missing, if I just had permission, I’d be in bliss with the prettiest, bitty, city ever witnessed, (whoa-oh!), already running late, trapped by the man on this manic Monday, my defeated instinct vs. a will to be be paid, and she rightly displayed, better take a sick day (whoa, oh!)
Taxis on the street outside, hustle of the feet, people stay on the grind, everybody got somewhere to be, but I bought me some time, I could watch TV, sip a wine, she divine intervened, in her mind I'm a friend, in my mind I'm a fiend, no sick, all pretend, but I trick, on the mend, lunatic, till I go back in, I have thrown three sheets to the wind (whoa/oh!), it's so precious, so precious, feeling this free, just dodging the trenches, and I'll be dealing with tomorrow when it comes, but she cooks me some breakfast and hums till it's done (whoa-oh!), c’est la vie, laissez faire, magnifique, all my French done come out when she's here, so forget consequence, while I choose, to live life, sans a care, better than living life chez despair (so-so)
Think I need to stay home
Think I need to stay home today (4x)
