One of These Days

one of these days I'll make some money
and buy myself those things that I want:
acrylic paints, acoustic guitar strings, a new bicycle seat
for my ride over to your house each night
and one of these days I'll get a real job
one that actually pays
like my dad had

you know my father, the bartender
used to wear a suit to work
before he hit the drink,
the old man used to do a lot of things

one of these days I'll give up
and give in to the man
