Lyrics and music: Geoff Sanborn


Here comes lame offer number five
How 'bout I drop you at home and do the shopping on my own?
But something outside has got your eye
I might as well just watch the road

Here comes lame offer number nine
Why don’t I get the stuff for teriyaki and pilaf?
But you keep pushing the cart down the aisle
Nothing I could say would be enough

Couldn’t we . . . couldn’t we . . .
Couldn’t we . . . I guess not.
Couldn’t we . . . couldn’t we . . .
Couldn’t we . . . I guess not.

Here comes lame offer number twelve
Why don’t you turn around and let me rub your shoulders down?
But you just rub them by yourself
And stare at the TV show you found

Here comes lame offer twenty one
Why don’t we give it a day or two before we decide what to do?
But you say real slow, “We’re done”—and like I
Hadn’t heard it the first time, “We’re through”
