Schwa Lyrics

When the Sun Goes Down

Lyricist: Dave Katz
Vocalist: Dave Katz
I work real hard in the old brickyard, I'll be a foreman someday.
He works real hard in the old brickyard, but a foreman he'll not be, nae. I
helped get a job for my best friend Joe, he used to be a longshoreman. He
helped get a job for his best friend Joe, and Joe became the next foreman.
Five-o-clock, and the workday's done. Headin' home to my kitchen.
Five-o-clock, and the workday's done. Soon he'll be out a pickin'.

When the sun goes down, people dance around the firelight.
When the sun goes down.
When the sun goes down, people dance around the firelight.
When the sun goes down, we'll sing old songs.
Sing.

I throw my pennies in an old milk jug. I'll have me a fortune someday.
He throws his pennies in an old milk jug, but a fortune he'll not have, 
nae.
I met my girl in the old town square, a pretty young thing named Jenny.
He met his girl in the old town square, and on her he spends his pennies.
Six-o-clock, and it's supper time, the succatash smells real good.
Six-o-clock, and it's supper time, soon he'll be smellin' firewood.

I was born in a one-room shack, I'll have me a mansion someday.
He was born in a one-room shack, but a mansion he'll not have, nae.
Twelve years married, and thirteen kids, takes alot of attention.
Twelve years married, and thirteen kids, won't afford him no mansion.
Seven-o-clock, and it's time to go. Hear the churchbells ringin'.
Seven-o-clock, and it's time to go. Soon he'll be out a singin'.

I've lived here now for twenty five years. I'll be the mayor someday.
He's lived here now for twenty five years, but the mayor he'll not be, nae.
I've always lived by the golden rule. I've always been a fair player. He's
always lived by the golden rule. That's why he'll never be mayor.
Eight-o-clock, and the sun goes down. I become a musician.
Eight-o-clock, and the sun goes down. Everybody'll be listenin'.
