lyrics

[Elizabeth]

So it’s Thursday, in the morning
I called him, he said he’d be here
Said he’d be open, I’m not joking

Or was I dreaming? Was I drunk then?
Did I invent an entire phone call?
He said he’d be here, he said he’d be open

[Elizabeth + Townsfolk Choir]

What do we do now?
We drove for hours to get here

[Elizabeth]

And Aunt Sara’s hard to transport
With her dementia, her weak hips,
And the price of gas which bleeds me dry

Then there’s the Volvo, that’s why we drove here
There’s no one else who knows how to fix it
Unless I drive into New Hampshire

[Elizabeth + Townsfolk Choir]

What do we do now?
We drove for hours to get here

[Elizabeth]

I swear I called him, he said he’d be here
Said he’d be open 12 to 5
This shop’s deserted
