“Papa Gene’s Blues” Lyrics

Davy: …sing a song that we don’t get a chance to sing with the band, so we just chose a could that you might enjoy tonight. This is for absent friends, okay.
Micky: Okay…
Peter: One, two, seven, twelve. A hundred and fifty three, hike!
Micky: Well, I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready.
Peter: You h—you started it.

No heartaches felt, no longer lonely
Nights of waiting finally won me
Happiness that’s all rolled up in you
And now with you as inspiration
I look toward a destination
Sunny, bright that once before was blue

I have no more than I did before
But now I’ve got all that I need
For I love you, and I know you love me

So take my hand, I’ll start my journey
Free from all the helpless worry
That besets a man when he’s alone
For strength is mine when we’re together
And with you, I know I’ll never
Have to pass the high road for the low

I have no more than I did before
But now I’ve got all that I need
For I love you, and I know you love me

[break]
Davy: Pick it, Peter.
Peter: I think I will. Hopefully.
Davy: Absent friends.
Peter: I like the 3D glasses.
Davy: I like all three of you too.

I have no more than I did before
But now I’ve got all that I need (Peter: Sorry.)
I love you, and I know you love me (Davy: Find a [???] and keep playing.)
Now, I love you, and I know you love me

Micky: Will you see me after class?
Peter: Heh heh.
