said under here
i said underwear
we were in the south of france in the rain on a farm
in a barn
outside the kids were playing in the pool
little mint sprouts growing all around the edges
i guess theres no chlorine in the pool to kill em
maybe they aint got chlorine in france i thought
we gave em mcdonalds, spaghetti-o’s, 3D movies, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, but somehow chlorine – which sounds french – didnt make it on the boat.
it was 20 years ago.
even then i felt old.
thats the funny thing about life, you’re never really where you wanna be in life
or the age you think you should be
or in the car you think you should drive
but for that week all was right.
all was perfect.
for that week the cows were the right ones
the wine, the friends, the girl, the hair, and even though we were poor
we all got on planes and jetted over seas in the summer to party hearty.
because maybe all the time
everythings more perfect than we think.
