Are You Doing Anything?

words and music by Paige Powell      ©2007 Paige E. Powell

1. She awoke, scorning and grieved at the morning of another work day

Educated and trained, obligated and chained to her small weekly pay

Her superior grants her a qualified answer

Then, pauses to say,

“Should I leave it to you? Are you doing anything?”

2. The phone is defeating the girl who is eating her blue fingernails

The procedure is old: they put her on hold

She thinks, “They’re fast as snails!”

They return to her voice and they give her no choice

But to see how the system fails

So, they leave it to her—“Are you doing anything?”

And they leave it to you,

You....     You...

 

Bridge: Back on the back porch pickin’ in my old blue jeans

Natural the garden growin’ what home grown livin’ means

 

3. Three years in the act she awakes to the fact that she is dead

Comes home dead at night, and you know she’s dead right

Sayin’, “I’m not getting ahead!”

Her desk’s rearranged and her position has changed

But her time has been bled

And they leave it to her—“Are you doing anything?”

And they leave it to you—“Are you doing anything?”

And they leave it to you...
