lyrics

go rest your bones little girl
you've had a hard day out in the world
pick up your feet, Peggy C.
watch everybody from your color T.V. 

well she's had a cold hard day
stuck at the mercy of her type-A ways
she's had a million things to say
but not a single soul dare spare her the space 

she's got a limp right side 
cataracts in both eyes
a battle-axe is what they call her
behind her back

she's been a slave to the maze
for 27,300 days
she's been a victim of the system
since she learned how to listen 
putting everything towards that raise

she's just a bad seed 
that's what they made her believe 
and then they tossed her down the well
fed her to the machine

she's not a valuable part
a disposable heart
she's got one more punch
before she fills up her card  

so go rest your bones little girl
you've had a hard day out in the world
pick up your feet, Peggy C.
watch everybody from your color T.V. 
go rest your bones

well she goes back and forth
and listens for the slam of the door
on her hollow front porch
she's waitin' for a man
whose havin' one night stands
all over east, west, south & north

She's just a moment away 
from losin' comprehension
oh yeah and she's a drunk
did I forget to mention
that she can't relax 
until she's tippin' one back
let's have a round of applause 
for the lady in the burlap sack

so go rest your bones little girl
you've had a hard day out in the world
pick up your feet, Peggy C.
watch everybody from your color T.V. 
go rest your bones

Oh you've had it hard

so rest your eyelids, and listen
for the sirens of perfect silence
