Mountain Goats, The - Song For Dennis Brown Lyrics




On the day that Dennis Brown's lung collapsed
Spring rain was misting down on Kingston
And down at the harbor
Local cops were intercepting an inbound shipment

And for a while there it was chaos
As they handcuffed and then roughed up some sailors
On the day my lung collapses
It's not going to be much different

On the day that Dennis Brown's habits caught up with him
School children sang in choirs
And out behind the Chinese restaurants
Guys were jumping into dumpsters

And the stench was overbearing
But they were past the point of caring
On the day my habits catch up with me
I'll be down among the jumpers

And when the birds come home in spring
We will fill them full of buckshot
And jets of contaminated blood
Will cloud the rivers and the lakes

It took all the coke in town
To bring down Dennis Brown
On the day my lung collapses
We'll see just how much it takes

    On the day that Dennis Brown's lung collapsed
    Spring rain was misting down on Kingston
    And down at the harbor
    Local cops were intercepting an inbound shipment

    And for a while there it was chaos
    As they handcuffed and then roughed up some sailors
    On the day my lung collapses
    It's not going to be much different

    On the day that Dennis Brown's habits caught up with him
    School children sang in choirs
    And out behind the Chinese restaurants
    Guys were jumping into dumpsters

    And the stench was overbearing
    But they were past the point of caring
    On the day my habits catch up with me
    I'll be down among the jumpers

    And when the birds come home in spring
    We will fill them full of buckshot
    And jets of contaminated blood
    Will cloud the rivers and the lakes

    It took all the coke in town
    To bring down Dennis Brown
    On the day my lung collapses
    We'll see just how much it takes

    John inspired me to try to write something similar for Robin Williams. "Try", heh. Been at it for three years now... John, Elliott, Eliot, Folds and Faulkner... they all know how to eulogize. Not me.

    I know you'll have made something wonderful in no time.
