May 15: Hey Louise

By Jake Brennan
04:00 PM

Hey Louise

Hey Louise, I thought Id write you a proper song
Not much of a send-off, but it looks like you're staying on
Hey Louise, who's stretched out on your couch tonight?
Taking the treatment, and a prescription full of lies

Weve been waiting so long, we've been waiting so
Weve been waiting so long, don't you know
Weve been waiting so long, we've been waiting so
Weve been waiting so long...

Hey Louise, I thought I'd write you a dance song
But the drum machine, it drops the beat when you turn it on
Hey Louise, who signed the diploma on your wall?
In this House of Wax, in this House of Wax...

Weve been waiting so long, weve been waiting so
Weve been waiting so long, now we know
Weve been waiting so long, weve been waiting so
Weve been waiting so long ...

Hey Louise, that judge he mustve known
A thing or three about the '70s Combat Zone
Hey Louise, he was a prince up on the bench
His diagnosis, a suspended sentence ...

Weve been waiting so long, weve been waiting so
Weve been waiting so long, now we know
Weve been waiting so long, weve been waiting so
Weve been waiting so long....

Read the story behind the song:
Woman gets suspended sentence for pretending to be a psychologist
