End Of The World Rag

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

A Hunter/Lauderdale song now included on Jim Lauderdale's 2014 album "I'm A Song".

Saturday night, it's the end of the world
Sitting round with our flags unfurled
Walking the dog, feeding the cat
No matter what happens, can't forget about that

What do you know, it's the end of the world
The very thought makes my whiskers curl
Reading the paper, baby, checking the news
Only for a moment, got to read the reviews

It's the end of the world
It's the end of the world
The end of the world, what do you know
Grab your money, get ready to go

Television coverage, the end of the world
In between the ads, hang on in there, girl
Watch out the window, without commentary
They tell us that it looks extraordinary

It's the end of the world as we know it today
Wrap it with a ribbon and cart it away
Civilisation was a joke and a half
Just hanging around, now, to have the last laugh

It's the end of the world
It's the end of the world
The end of the world, what do you know
Grab your money, get ready to go

It's the end of the world
It's the end of the world
The end of the world, what do you know
Grab your money, get ready to go

Only thing I'll miss is the love of my friends
Hard to believe this is how it all ends
If it was my choice, I'd rather survive
But nobody gets out of this [pond] alive

End of the world, well what can you say
Nobody ever thought it would end this way
One minute you're mine and I'll [buy you some] pay
Next thing you know there's no more today

It's the end of the world
It's the end of the world
The end of the world, what do you know
Grab your money, get ready to go
