The Last Hurrah
(music and lyrics by Diane Nalini)

Bobby goes to private school, he’s in his final year
Wants to join the blue berets but Daddy just won’t hear:
“If I’m going to pay for college you’ll get a good degree!
In finance, law or medicine… something with prestige.”

So he’ll bite his tongue and take the cash
Graduate and attend the bash
Join the party
For the last hurrah

Standing on the corner waiting in the wind
Mama’s on her way to get him the crowd is getting thin
She pulls up in her Hummer riding nice and high
She doesn’t really need the space but man, she’s looking fine!

So she floors the pedal, pulls out fast
Burns that gas cause it’s such a blast
Sittin' pretty
For the last hurrah

Daddy’s got a job in the City sixty hours a week
Watching money changing hands playing hide and seek
Twice a month he rides a Lear from here to New Orleans
Boss don’t like to take the airlines, no, he’s a man of means

So he lights a match and takes a drag
Of the sweetest Cohiba he’s ever had
Engines roarin'
To the last hurrah

Sitting in his easy chair from way on high above
The Man with the Plan ain’t happy at what we’ve done with love
He wonders if he made an error on that Seventh Day
Resting instead of teaching the flock to find its way

Think I’ll start from scratch and end this mess
Wipe the slate clean ‘cause it’s what I do best
Won’t you join me
For the Last Hurrah?

Time to start from scratch and end this mess
Wipe the slate clean ‘cause it’s what I do best
Won’t you join me for the Last Hurrah?
