lyrics

Don’t You Wish You Were Einstein by carrie katz


What stops you from living your life
Is it not enough to have a lovely wife
Can you really get enough, off of that television fluff
Are you sure you have enough beer
‘Cause we can always get out of here
And if you see someone you know, just buy a ticket from the Loto

Don’t you wish you were Einstein
Just can’t keep him off of my mind
He knew the relative value of time
He liked his women, he loved his wine

Waiting for the axe to fall
If you lose this job you’ve got nothing at all
Could move out of this place, you wish they’d start colonizing space
The care broke down but that’s O.K.
‘Cause you can’t afford the gas anyway
You’re tired of shopping at the dollar stores, ‘cause nothing’s worth a $ anymore

Don’t you wish you were Einstein
Just can’t keep him off of my mind
He knew the relative value of time
He liked his women, he loved his wine

You once grew up in a Suburban Plan
To get ahead you just needed to be a man
You would provide, while your woman did all of the work
Well what’s stopping you from quitting this race
Is it the kid or a shattered sense of disgrace
You can’t get out because you feel trapped in
Your life would be lost if you left them

Don’t you wish you were Einstein
Just can’t keep him off of my mind
He knew the relative value of time
He liked his women, he loved his wine
