Monday At Anna’s

OK everybody shhh… settle down settle down
We’re going to bring up… Mr. Brian von Ahsen

When I walk through that door
Just in from the north shore
Put my name down on the list.
Then I head for the bar
Toss a tip in the jar
Start in with raising my wrist

It’s Monday at Anna Banana’s
I’m so happy I hardly can speak
And though I may act the fool
You know it’s all true
And I’ll be good for the rest of the week

As I’m waiting my turn
Figure I might as well learn
My limits for draining my glass
So by the time I’m on stage
Barely acting my age
I won’t care if I fall on my ass

It’s Monday at Anna Banana’s
Where even a fool like me gets a chance
To put my songs the test
For worse or for best
Who knows? you might even find reason to dance
(or not)

Well it’s possible that you won’t enjoy it
You might even hiss, and boo
But I don’t really care
Cause the reasons I’m here
Are all about me, not you

So now don’t get upset
If I screw up my set
Cause I won’t be up here for long
For better or worse
Whether you clap or you curse
There’s plenty more fools to come on

It’s Monday at Anna Banana’s
And there’s no fool like this one I guess
But I’ll keep coming back
As long as I lack
A reason to give it a rest

It’s Monday at Anna Banana’s
And we’re all fools in some ways I guess
But we’ll keep coming back
Cause we know it’s a fact
Anna Bananna’s open mic is the best
Yea we’ll keep coming back
Cause we know it’s a fact
Anna Bananna’s open mic is the best
