MAD MISSION
Patty Griffin


We were drinking like the Irish

But we were drinking scotch

Bartender turned on a movie

Everybody turned to watch

And every single eye was gleaming

As he reached the final scene

Well, at least mine did

Here's lookin' at you, kid


It's a mad mission

Under difficult conditions

not everybody makes it

To the loving cup

It's a mad mission

But I got the ambition

Mad, mad mission

sign me up


I think I've seen the look before,yes,

it's kind of non-commital

It says come hither, baby, but then he's hard wood to whittle

it says it don't mean a thing, but still, somebody does

He'd like you to join the club that likes to say

there's no such thing as love and


It's a mad mission

Under difficult conditions

not everybody makes it

To the loving cup

It's a mad mission

But I got the ambition

Mad, mad mission

sign me up


Sometimes you find yourself

flying low at night

Flying blind and looking for

Any sign of light

You're cold and scared, and all alone

You'd do anything just to make it home


It's a mad mission

Under difficult conditions

not everybody makes it

To the loving cup

It's a mad mission

But I got the ambition

Mad, mad mission

sign me up


Sign me up
