You may be a cheap date
But my therapy's expensive as hell
Then you pay a psychic healer who let you know
Things aren't working out so well

Tomorrow's shining off our face
Yesterday's shadow's at our back, at our back
So why must you always dress in black?

People, they don't take advice, they only give it
And the only way you're ever gonna learn is to live it
So what you spent your younger years
Parlaying on the wrong side of the track, of the track
Well, why, why must you always dress in black?

If you have to lie, do it quickly
And as thoroughly as you can, as you can
This morning I woke up slow
Feeling like a shell of a man

Don't blame me for us, you cried
Or cut me some slack, cut me some slack
And tell me why, why must you always dress in black?

She wore high heels
The ones that can pierce your heart, pierce your heart
Just 'cause you go down in history
Doesn't mean you're really are that smart

Like Robert E Lee at your best
When under attack, under attack
Why must you always dress in black?

You call in sick on Monday
Tuesday, you show up late
Wednesday, you left early
Thursday, you fight with a boss you hate

Friday, you up and quit
Saturday, you want your old job back, old job back
But Sunday morning, you wake up all dressed in black
Why must you always dress in black?
