ETHAN SEQUENCE


Ethan is preparing for his flight to France
As his mummy fills the suitcase
Anyone would testifying he’s taking Stance
As his mummy ties his shoelace

Once upon a time he had a girlfriend
One day she admitted she would leave
One thing led to other things
Ethan began wondering
What would he tell Mommy?

Ethan used to always engineer his thoughts
As his mummy read the paper
Everyone would want to question Ethan’s guts
As his mummy cooked potatoes

Once upon a time he liked report cards
One day he came home with all C’s
One thing led to other things
Ethan started pondering
Calling Pan American.

Ethan is aboard a first-class jumbo jet
As his mummy sits a-cryin’
Everyone is sitting with their headphone set
As his mummy sits a-sighin’

Once upon a time he had a family
One day she said ‘bye’ the final time
One thing led to other things
Ethan left her in the spring
Winter’s gonna kill her.
