THE BURBS

You haven’t been writing have you
You haven’t been listening have you
You haven’t had sex with your schizophrenic neighbor have you
All great Americans have opinions about the The Burbs

Has Tom Hanks entered your dreams lately or was that your fathers dreams
Weren’t you born the year Splash was released
Maybe your parents watched Bosom Buddies hours before you were conceived
Maybe Tom Hanks is more a part of your life then you will ever know
Maybe your next door neighbors are Tom Hanks fans
But that isn’t very special, because who isn’t a Tom Hanks fan
He’s a great guy

Stop thinking The Burbs is going on next door
and stop making jokey assumptions about mental illness
It’s not cool
You’ll never be as loved as Tom Hanks
