"LITTLE CO-OP" | "I'M A PROOFREADER" | "BORING DAYS"

"LITTLE CO-OP"
(To the tune of "Little Deuce Coupe")

Little Co-Op
I don't know why I got it.

Well I'm not bragging babe so don't put me down
But I've got the smallest apartment in town
It's just ten-by-ten with a bathroom so small
If I wanna change my mind I have to go in the hall.

It's my Little Co-Op
I don't know why I got it.

Just a little co-op on Twelfth Avenue
Of the back of a laundromat I have a great view
It cost a hundred forty grand plus broker's fee
Gave me an education in bankruptcy.

It's my Little Co-Op
I don't know why I got it.

I've got gates on the windows and four locks on the door
A hooker and three terrorists all live on my floor
And if that ain't enough to make you feel distress
I've got a roach farm in my cabinets.

Now maybe some day I'll hit suburbia
With a lawn from my house to the curbia
But it won't be the same having all that space
And I'll miss spraying Raid all over the place.

Yea my Little Co-Op
I don't know why I got it.

It's my Little Co-Op
I don't know why I got it.


"I'M A PROOFREADER"
(To the tune of "I'm A Believer")

I thought law meant going to court and arguing
Just like Perry Mason on T.V.
Cross-examination
The witness at my feet
Winning all my cases
And Della Street.

Then I graduated
Now I'm A Proofreader
I spend my day
Hi-liter in hand
I'm a lawyer but, oh
I'm A Proofreader
I sit here reading all the time.

I thought law meant telling clients what to do
Telling what to buy and whom to sue
But I had it backwards
Clients do what they will
And they're always right
Long as they pay the bills.

Then I graduated
Now I'm A Proofreader
I spend my day
Hi-liter in hand
I'm a lawyer but, oh
I'm A Proofreader
I sit here reading all the time.

My professors told me
Follow what we say
I followed Evelyn Wood
Now I make more than they.

Then I graduated
Now I'm A Proofreader
I spend my day
Hi-liter in hand
I'm a lawyer but, oh
I'm A Proofreader
I sit here reading all the time.


"BORING DAYS"
(To the tune of "Glory Days')

I had a friend who was a Law Reviewer
Back in law school
He could throw those citations by you
Make you look like a fool, boy
Saw him the other night at the Bar Library
I was walking in; he was walking out
We went back inside, sat down, read a few cases
But all we kept talking about was:

Boring Days
Well they'll drag on by
Boring Days
And the glare of a partner's eye
Boring Days, Boring Days.

Well there's a girl that lives up the block
Back in school she got all C's
Now she's working down at Legal Aid
She goes to court when she pleases
She gets her picture in the Daily News
While I just get paper cuts
But she's got too big a caseload which she cannot refuse
And she lives at the mercy of budget cuts.

Boring Days
Well they'll drag on by
Boring Days
And the glare of a partner's eye
Boring Days, Boring Days.

Think I'm going down to the mall tonight
And I'm gonna shop 'till I get my fill
And I hope when I go broke I won't sit thinking about it
But I probably will
Yeah just sitting back trying to remember
Why I took the LSAT
'Cause in thirty years, when I retire mister
All I'll have left will be:

Boring Days
Well they'll drag on by
Boring Days
And the glare of a partner's eye
Boring Days, Boring Days.
