By Warren Zevon c. 1991 Zevon Music/BMI

Don't the sky look funny
Don't it look kinda chewed-on like
Don't you feel like running
Don't you feel like running from the dawn's early light

Quite ugly one morning
We all said goodnight
It came without a warning
Just a flash of light

Don't you feel kind of funny
Don't you feel kind of funny inside
When you feel like laughing
And everybody tells you you ought to be crying

Quite ugly one morning
We all said goodnight
It came without a warning
But it was quite all right
Quite ugly one morning
We all said goodnight
It came without a warning
But it was quite all right

From dawn to sundown
It's a long, long way
And it's a hollow triumph
When you make it to the bottom of another day
There's a fever rising
When the evening comes
And when the battle's over
There'll be nothing left but the sound of drums

Quite ugly one morning
We all said goodnight
It came without a warning
Just a flash of light

Quite ugly one morning
We all said goodnight
It came without a warning
But it was quite all right
