Fool in The Mirror - Guy Clark

Well, I wake up every morning Lord and what do I see?
I got a fool in my mirror and he's lyin' to me
He says, oh, man, she's comin' back, you just hide and watch
That fool in my mirror's singin' the same old song
But it still don't change the fact that my baby is gone

I got wrinkles round my eyes, I got grey in my hair
I'm puttin' on a little bit of weight but I don't seem to care
Fool say, hey slick, you lookin' good, lie, lie, lie
That fool in my mirror's singin' the same old song
But it still don't change the fact that my baby is gone

Now, I just figured out what she meant when she said
That she was not comin' back so why don't I drop dead
Well, I can't live with him, god god I can't live without
I can't believe a word he says but I would not dare doubt him

He says, oh, man, she just went to get a loaf of bread
Say, you losin' a little bit weight aren't you?
That fool in my mirror's singin' the same old song
But it still don't change the fact that my baby is gone

Now, I just figured out what she meant when she said
That she was not comin' back so why don't I drop dead

Well, I wake up every morning Lord and I go to brush my teeth
I got a fool in my mirror and he's lyin' to me
He says, oh, man, she's comin' back, don't worry, you just hide and watch
Say, that grey looks real distinguished on you man, lying son of a b_tch

That fool in my mirror's singin' the same old song
But it still don't change the fact that my baby is gone
Now, it still don't change the fact that my baby is gone
