Some summers in the evening after six or so
I walk on down the hill and maybe buy a beer
I think about my friends
Sometimes I wish they lived out here

But they wouldn't
Dig this town
No they wouldn't
Dig this town

Try not to think about it, Alice Childress
Try not to think about it anymore
Try not to think about it, Alice Childress
Anymore, no not anymore, no

Alice the world is full of ugly things
That you can't change
Pretend it's not that way
That's my idea of faith

You can blow it off
And say there's good
In nearly everyone
Just give them all a chance
Give them all a chance

Try not to think about it, Alice Childress
Try not to think about it anymore
Try not to think about it, Alice Childress
Anymore, no not anymore, no

No it didn't work out
No it didn't work out
The way we thought it would
No it didn't work out
Anna raged marriage is not so good

Thank God it's you
You know your timing is impeccable
I'm not fooling you
I don't know what to do

Some dude just knocked me cold
And left me on the sidewalk
Took everything I had
Everything I had

Try not to think about it, Alice Childress
Try not to think about it anymore
It's getting light where you are, Alice Childress
Anymore, no not anymore
Anymore, no not anymore
