From the CD "Frisbee Bomb Craters"

The Girl in the Hardware Store

I went to the hardware store to pick up a thing or two.
That's when I saw that girl.
She worked at the checkout stand and rang my stuff on through.
Her smile made my heart swirl.
Went back the very next day to pick up a thing or two.
She didn't have a clue.

I went to buy a nail,
a string, a pail or anything.
I think I might be crazy for
the girl in the hardware store.

I bought every tool I could find, every brick and board they sold.
Excuses I could find.
I might be silly to think that I could ever hold
or ever make her mine.
But I'll keep stopping in and looking for things to buy
or maybe just say hi.

I went to buy a nail,
a string, a pail or anything.
I think I might be crazy for
the girl in the hardware store.
