  1. What's There to Eat?

From the album Christine's Debut CD

In cart Not available Out of stock

This song is about defeatism and excuses, which I daresay many of us employ. A friend of mine was bemoaning the fact that he was "too old" to go to college. Nonsense!! Unless you're going to be a prima ballerina, in which case you need to have begun at age five, then, what are you waiting for?!

I turn off the phones
And I isolate
I stay home alone
I stay up too late

I watch all the re-runs
Of my favorite shows
I don’t really think about
They help me forget about
The good times I’ll never know

It’s too late to begin
It’s too late to win
It’s not fair
It’s too hard
I never could start
I always start strong
I finish weak….ya
What’s on TV?
What’s there to eat?

I see the celebrities
The lives that they lead
You’d think with all that money
They’d give some to me

I went to rob the liquor store
But they sent me to jail
Compared to all the movie stars
I’m sure my troubles seem pale

It’s too late to begin
It’s too late to win
It’s not fair
It’s too hard
I never could start
I always start strong
I finish weak….ya
What’s on TV?
What’s there to eat?

If life is a sideshow
For the small and the weak
Then who is the barker
For those who won’t speak?

We tally our losses
We fake a few wins
But some would rather fall and freeze on their knees
Than have to yearn and burn again

It’s too late to begin
It’s too late to win
It’s not fair
It’s too hard
I never could start
I always start strong
I finish weak….ya
What’s on TV?
What’s there to eat?

I said what’s on TV?
What’s there to eat?

I said what’s on TV?
What’s there to eat?
