Sweet Sour Friends

from by The Great Novel



Costume Records


Like a chill and a pyjama, like kids and Coca
Cola, that’s all right / Like fish and raw, like
cars and Pa, that’s all right / Like ink and
feather, like a beginning and a capital letter,
that’s all right / Swinging with the noise,
Jesus what a choice, but that’s all right

Sweet sour friends; so hard to deal with the
end / Sweet sour friends; what you gonna do
then? / Sweet sour friends; so hard to deal
with the end / Sweet sour friends; what you
gonna do then?

We had that gig that wasn’t a blast, but that’s
all right / The elephant’s so big, we ain’t
gonna make it last, but that’s all right / 90
on the highway, regretting mistakes, that’s all
right / 50 “someday’s “ God it’s all fake, but
that’s all right
