The Day After Yesterday

Stop, Drop, and Roll coverWords and music by Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers The day after yesterday I lost my luck Sped right off in an old milk truck Oh I heard it clinking away The sky was yellow and the sun was black Rise or set—I can’t keep track sometimes It’s been a very big day The ladders climbed, the quarters played The babies cried, the blue jeans frayed Crack in the rear view mirror The final round of truth or dare The dorky sprout of facial hair Are closer than they appear On the day after yesterday The day after yesterday I lost my spot The line stretched on, the day was shot Looks like it’s really here to stay Dropped my nickels and I spun the dial Let it ring a good long while Oh I will get an answer someday In black and white suspended space The gap-tooth smile, the breathless chase Wheeling it into town The ice comes down, the branches gleam The slipping slope, a child’s dream Never to touch the ground On the day after yesterday The vinyl hour I take a spin The needle pops again again Stuck in the Memphis blues Forever young, forever gray Forever spun the same old way Nobody can refuse The day after yesterday The day after yesterday and still I find I fall ahead, I spring behind Sometimes I just take my time
