The Diplomat

作曲Dan Hicks
Acorn fall from a tree
And try to bop me in the head
I said to the acorn
"Is it something that I said?"

I'm a just a-practicing my diplomacy
Where everything is everything
And it's alright with me

Man step on my toe and I say "oh, pardon me"
I'm just practicing my diplomacy
Now I'm put on hold on the phone
For what seems like an eternity (how rude)
Then the phone is disconnected
But thafs alright with me

But won't somebody just throw me a bone
So I can chew the thing alone
And won't somebody allow me to roam
And maybe I can get on safely home

Never in my day have I seen so much in my way
I'm just a dodging bullet everywhere I turn
If it wasn't for losin' I'd be winning night and day
And make my diplomatic ways something to learn!

I go in to cash a check so I can buy a fern
The bank is out of money
And besides ifs not my turn
I'm very diplomatic as I wait to get my bread
Then the lady wants to see ID
Is it something that I said?

Won't somebody let me catch a break?
I've taken bout all I can take
Won't somebody just throw me a crumb?
Or sing a song that I can hum

People talking to themselves
Walking around
Pollutin' the air with that cell phone sound
But I'm diplomatic
I pretend that I don't hear

Hey I know all their secrets
Bat they have nothing to fear
Won't somebody just rattle my cage?
At least we'd be on the same page
Won't somebody just cut me some slack?
Or change my tire with their jack

Never in my day have I seen so much in my way
I'm just a dodging bullet everywhere I turn
If it wasn't for losin' I'd be winning night and day
And make my diplomatic ways something to learn!

Won't somebody just get in the zone?
Won't somebody just pay back a loan?
Won't somebody just set the tone?
Or can't you hear that Casey when she moan
