my lyricsbox
Jeannie had big plans, a ballerina
Broadway bound
And that '87 Honda
Was gonna get her out of this town

Caviar for breakfast
A Limo waiting every night
White chiffon and black tie
Her name up on the marquee lights

Oh, how her star was gonna shine
Oh, but in the meantime

Make the coffee, read the paper
Late for work, dreams will wait 'til later
Get the bills paid, buy the groceries
No time to stop and smell the roses
Ain't it funny, ain't it fine
How life goes on in the meantime

Bobby had a fast ball
Everybody talked about
He made it to the minors
Struck a hundred batters out

But something in his elbow
Gave out in the final game
He had an operation
But never threw quite the same

Yeah, he'll be back when his arm is fine
Yeah, but in the meantime

Make the coffee, read the paper
Late for work, dreams will wait 'til later
Get the bills paid, buy the groceries
No time to stop and smell the roses
Ain't it funny, ain't it fine
How life goes on in the meantime

Now Jeannie takes the girls
To dance class Wednesday afternoons
And Bobby coaches Little league
Junior will be pitching soon

Sometimes at night they laugh about
Old meant to be's and might have beens
But six o'clock comes early
And it's time to start the day again

Make the coffee, read the paper
Late for work, dreams will wait 'til later
Get the bills paid, buy the groceries
Take time to stop and smell the roses
Ain't it funny, ain't it fine
How life goes on

Ya, ain't it funny, ain't it fine
How life goes on in the meantime

Make the coffee, read the paper
Late for work, dreams will wait 'til later
Get the bills paid, buy the groceries
No time to stop and smell the roses

Make the coffee, read the paper
Late for work, dreams will wait 'til later
Get the bills paid, buy the groceries
No time to stop and smell the roses

Make the coffee, read the paper
Late for work, dreams will wait 'til later
Get the bills paid
