lyrics

Landed back in LAX
Tired and wired and drained
Inserted my last cigarette
Before I set foot off the plane
Found myself a titty bar
Where the dancers couldn’t care less
Wave my twenty like a flag
Oh, this is my S.O.S.
Can’t you see? I’m good company
Couldn’t tell night from day
Just needed to get some rest
I had squandered my good will and
I had no will left
Bourbon and a powdered cheek
That’s my therapy
Since there’s no one in this bar
Hell, the next drink’s on me
Can’t you see? I’m good company
Mamanama
Oooh, when happy hour’s reached
You know it’s time to leave
Catch the bus to Venice Beach
Dr. Feelgood set me up
Pushed me out toward the waves
Lay my coat on down the sand and had to catch a ray
Teenagers offered me a cup of vodka and juice
I said, “Lend me your boogie board
Kids, I gotta cut loose!”
Can’t you see? I’m good company
Mamanama
