Swing

Swings

It rained for weeks
And the rooftop leaks
And our plumbing makes rumbly dings
We can stay in and mope
And struggle to cope
Or go out and swing on the swings

I wanna swing on the swings, sis
Not bicker about all those things, sis
You’re liberal and I’m right wing, sis
Let’s up and swing on the swings

We’ve quarreled for days about marriage for gays
And the rights of the Muslims, and of Tom DeLay
And the virtues of Castro and Chávez and Kim
Let’s go in the yard and go out on a limb

I wanna swing on the swings, sis
Not bicker about all those things, sis
You’re liberal and I’m right wing, sis
Let’s up and swing on the swings
