Old Laughing Lady (Young)

1. Don't call pretty Peggy, she can't hear you no more.
Don't leave no message 'round her back door.
They say the "Old Laughing Lady" been here before.
She don't keep time, she don't count score.

2. You can't have a cupboard if there ain't no wall.
You got to move, There's no time left to stall.
They say the "Old Laughing Lady" dropped by to call.
When she leaves, she leaves nothing at all.

3. See the drunkyard of the village falling on the street.
Can't tell his ankles from the rest of his feet.
He loves his old laughing lady 'cause her taste is so sweet.
But the laughing lady's lovin', ain't the kind he can keep.

4. There's a fever on the freeway, blacks out the night.
There's a slipping on the stairway, just don't feel right.
And there's a rumbling in the bedroom and a flashing of light.
There's the "Old Laughing Lady", ev'rything is all right
