The Problem With Jazz Songtext

The Problem With Jazz Songtext

It's just an apartment, she must be a fool
It's the size of a jewel box, the price of a jewel
The landlord is lazy, the winters are cold
She thinks often of old love, and often feels old

She's got too many t-shirts and not enough time
She takes out the trash every Monday at nine
She says, No sir, I don't wanna work
I don't wanna waitress, I don't wanna do this
I told you I just want to play
Tell me to go back to school, man, you've got to be pulling my leg

She says it seems I could turn around take back what time has sold me
Absolutely everything they ever told me
Resolutely I'm inclined to fight the blows
Incompletely I resign myself to the highs and lows


He grew up in Nashville, how 'bout that
He says he moved out of Nashville so he could play jazz
And he learned all the rules and the well-tempered tunes that he could
Now, ten years of schooling that accent is gone for good

Now, he's in New York City, plays jazz all the time
He says the problem with jazz is you don't make a dime
He's got a big sax and a bad back and a black cat named Miles
He may be somewhat abrasive, but that's just his style

He says, it seems I could turn around take back what time has sold me
Absolutely everything they ever told me
Resolutely I'm inclined to fight the blows
Incompletely I resign myself to the highs and lows

Said the cook to the waitress, I can't stand to be here right now
Life's a mess and the wife just walked out
The laundry is sky high, and I'm close to tears
The waitress she shrugged she said, Man, I never wanna be here

She says it seems I could turn around take back what time has sold me
Absolutely everything they ever told me
Resolutely I'm inclined to fight the blows
Incompletely I resign myself to the highs and lows
