Too Much Time on My Hands Lyrics

Yeah, I'm sittin' on this bar stool talkin' like a d**m fool,
Got the twelve o'clock news blues!
And I've given up on the afternoon soaps
And a bottle of cold brew!

Is it any wonder I'm not crazy,
Is it any wonder I'm not I'm sane at...

    The entire "Paradise Theater" album was a reflection on the decline of the United States in the Seventies. This particular song was about one of the symptoms of American decline: unemployment.

    The narrator of the song is an unemployed blue collar male who has long since given up any hope of finding a job.He spends his days at the neighborhood bars with other downtrodden, unemployed guys like himself, getting drunk and talking nonsense.
