lyrics

BOOK OF MATCHES - words & music by Nate Butler
We're goin' bong, bong, bong, that's the way we live
And workin' all day long, forty hours we give
There is nothin' wrong, in fact it's out of sight
You wanna come along, you better help me find
Boogah, boogah, boogah ...

Book of matches (and it's alright)
A book of matches (I got the light)
And it's not for me to choose the words you use
Whatever gets you through the night

Well, it's another day, so pack it tight
And where you gonna stay? Can you spend the night?
You're gonna always say that it's not right
But I don't wanna fight today -- hey, you got a light?
Boogah, boogah, boogah ...

A book of matches (and it's alright)
A book of matches (I got the light)
And it's not for me to choose the words you use (and it's alright)
'Cause it's what you choose; face what you lose
Sooner or later, we've all got to choose
Whatever gets you through the night

We're goin' bong, bong, bong ...
