Flicking through the channels
Digging through the dirt
Eating beans from the pot
Wipes a stain from his shirt

He's something of a hermit
Lives a solitary life
Charlie muddles through
Never chanced a wife

Everyone excited
When the fair came to town
He stood off to the side
When the rides came around

Now the sun is waning
Stars in the sky
Flicking through the channels
Tears in his eyes

Jesse checks the mirror
Fusses with her hair
Stares at all the lines
Sighs with despair

As she does her makeup
Black tear on her cheek
Leans against the sink
And lets her memories leak

Her skin was ivory
Men vied for her charms
She fell in love with their gaze
Never in their arms

I wish I'd had a family
Confessing once again
Gets a pat on the hand
At least she's got a friend

But now the sun is waning
The stars in the sky
She's flicking through the channels
Tears in her eyes

Flicking through the channels
Flicking through the channels
