I Bought the Company

I was sitting at a little red felt-covered table, I was reflecting on my fate,

I’d drank about as much as I was able to I was in a lonely state

Then she blew in on her angel wings, Pretty as an angel could be

She said « I gotta’ get off my feet Would you mind a little company ? »


I pulled back a chair and signaled the waitress To bring us round a couple of beer,

Then I started with the small talk « So what brings you in here ? »

She just smiled, it was a work of art Right there she had me, she’d stole my heart

The place was filling up with the late night crowd I said « Let’s go somewhere quiet, it’s gettin' too loud »

She said « I'll go with you, but you know my time my ain't free »

But I liked her so much, I bought the company.



I liked her so much I bought the company

I would have taken her home and loved her for eternity

But I guess when you go down that road, once you're walking those streets

You can't turn round too easily

But I liked her so much, I bought the company


Now her goodbye kiss is still warm on my lips But that's nothin' that you couldn’t condone

I need some green, gotta’ find a bank machine So I can pay my taxi home

The streetlights are fading, we'd talked until dawn, She sure knew I wasn't any regular john,

Finally interrupted by her ringtone, Someone was calling on her cellphone

She said « I'll go with you. » And that was the end for me.

But I liked her so much, and she'd kept me company.
