LARRY / he came in one night, sleep walking / got into bed with his shoes still on / on came the light, and he woke with a fright / a hard thing to do with your eyes already open / dressing gown around her, she threw back the sheets and withdrew like a storm seeing his feet / but love, he cried, it was a terrible dream / we lost the house, the cars and the plasma tv / she came in from the refrigerator with a juice and a thing or two to say on the matter / oh Larry, I can see something's going on / now don't wake the children / oh Larry, you're working too hard and too long / and I can see something's going wrong / she drove him down to an all-night doctor / two minutes they were told to wait and two hours later came a man with fatigue in his stride, a white collared shirt and plum coloured eyes / I don't see a problem, he said, all clear / flipped down a pill and said, well why are you here? you know, you're not the only one falling behind / I've got one patient waiting out there for every star in the sky / oh Larry, I know you think you’re working too hard and too long / but don’t worry, we're all working hard and too long / don't worry, nothing's wrong / she grabbed his hand and said, I think we'll see you later / I wouldn't trust a doctor who looks like he's falling over, no / no Larry, I can see something’s going on / but it's not about your children / oh Larry, we’re all working hard and too long / don’t worry, nothing’s wrong
