They Might Be Giants – Thankful for Your Service

Lyrics for “Thankful for Your Service” performed by They Might Be Giants

At the bottom of the kitchen trash
I found the empty container of take out food
With my name clearly written on it

Following a trail of footsteps from
The standing water in the bathroom
I discovered my soaking wet
Bedroom slippers in the hallway

Maybe I’ve been spoiled by a life of solitude
Maybe there’s some other way
I can express my gratitude

But the presence of so many friendly strangers
Makes me nervous versuri.online
And it doesn’t mean that
I’m not truly thankful for your service

Lately I’ve been spending more and more
Of my free time hanging out in the empty back room
Of the diner just up the highway

And it’s just to give you elbow room
That I’ve been making use of the sleeping bag
That I keep rolled up and stashed behind my couch

Do you think that I think
I’m somehow better than you
Please accept my word
That nothing could be further from the truth

But the presence of so many friendly strangers
Makes me nervous
And it doesn’t mean that
I’m not truly thankful for your service…
