      About "He Forgot That It Was Sunday"

      Lyrics for John Prine - "He Forgot That It Was Sunday"

      The motel lights were blinkin'
      On my chartreuse four door Lincoln
      On the dock the fish were stinkin'
      I simply didn't have a care

      And the old men sit 'round the cracker barrels
      The children hum their Christmas carols
      The train tracks all run parallel
      But they'll all meet up one day

      On a dusty pew in a vestibule
      Sits the Devil playing pocket pool
      He's waiting for the next poor fool
      Who forgot that it was Sunday

      We used to tell each other lies
      With our orange plastic button eyes
      In a former life on a motel chair
      I was Charlie Parker's teddy bear

      Yeah, me and Bird we'd stay up late
      I used to watch him contemplate
      While his horn would sit by the window and
      Wait till it was time for him to blow it

      On a dusty pew in a vestibule
      Sits the Devil playing pocket pool
      He's waiting for the next poor fool
      Who forgot that it was Sunday

      The only song I ever knew
      Was "Moonlight Bay on the Avenue"
      These are the tales from the Devil's chin
      Charlie I could've been a contender

      And the old men sit round the cracker barrels
      The children hum their Christmas carols
      The train tracks all run parallel
      But they'll all meet up one day

      On a dusty pew in a vestibule
      Sits the Devil playing pocket pool
      He's waiting for the next poor fool
      Who forgot that it was Sunday
      Who forgot that it was Sunday.
