my pen dried up, and left me without words for you,
and my eyes, they dried up, too,
I might like to cry, I might like to write a line or 2,
but my pen dried up, my pen dried up…
the sun came up, and tried to coax me out of bed,
but I won’t budge, no, I’d rather sleep you off instead, and I’m
almost done, another 20 years or so,
but my pen dried up, my pen dried up…
+++ just give me some time & I’ll be fine,
+++ you’ll be the farthest thing from my mind,
+++ give me the weekend, give me a night,
+++ just don’t expect me to write, ‘cause my pen dried up,
+++ my pen dried up, my pen dried up…

If I had a dime for every time you called today,
I’d be as broke, just as broke as I am anyway,
but that’s alright, I don’t even try to pay the bills since my pen dried up,
my pen dried up…
+++ just give me some time & I’ll be fine,
+++ you’ll be the farthest thing from my mind,
+++ give me a lifetime, give me a night,
+++ just don’t expect me to write,
+++ ‘cause my pen dried up…
