LYRICS

It’s Monday night at the laundry mat
It’s a hundred and five maybe more than that
There’s really no point in thinking anymore

I’m getting drunk on paper bag wine
Another bum wouldn’t spare me a dime
I think a Disney princess just passed out on the floor

Can’t move can’t speak
Can’t laugh can’t weep
I’m a statue in the rain
No hope no fear No joy no tear
I’m a statue in the rain
Statue in rain

I’d rather live up high on a cul-de-sac
Get good and fat and have a cardiac
But with dumb blond luck I could never score

I’d drink tea by a blue and fragrant sea
China and a silver spoon if you please
Cause self restraint is such a chore

Can’t move can’t speak
Can’t laugh can’t weep
I’m a statue in the rain
No hope no fear No joy no tear
I’m a statue in the rain
Statue in rain

Well up in heaven there’s a railway train
With all the gifts of heaven it’s carrying
The train mans been drinking
He’s sleeping at the switch

And down on earth I am waiting
For some of what that train is carrying
But a hundred prayers and he don’t twitch

Can’t move can’t speak
Can’t laugh can’t weep
I’m a statue in the rain
No hope no fear No joy no tear
I’m a statue in the rain
Statue in rain
