"Tell Me on a Sunday"

Thanks for the Dress is the 15th song on The Mountain Goats' fourth cassette, Hot Garden Stomp.


The young sun
The old story forming
Hasn't been the same
Since dad came by this morning
Did you see the way mom's looking at us
Mark it well

Your eyes meet mine
When we hear her call
The strange birds in the yard
Are perched above the symbols that she painted on the garden wall
Did you see the way mom's looking at us
Did you see the way mom's looking at us
Don't say anything
