Old 97's – Busted Afternoon lyrics

There was a fine rain
There was a red wine
There was a long whistle
And it was a good sign

There was a band playin'
Somewhere off-screen
There was a girl sayin'
"Come clean."

In a dream
On a busted afternoon
In a haze
On a busted afternoon
In a bad way
On a busted afternoon

There was a sad truth
There was a punchline
And there was a long whistle
And it was a good sign

And there was a long goodbye
There was a long goodbye

(Repeat Chorus)
