THEY CAN'T HEAR ANYMORE

WORDS: Barbara Fritchie
(from her poem "Plantation Road")
MUSIC: Earl P. Reinhalter


       INTRO:  the women are in their houses
               and it's so loud,
               and it's so loud -

      CHORUS:  they can't hear anymore.
               they can't hear anymore.
               they can't hear anymore.
               they can't hear anymore.

           I.  they can't hear 'cause the ice cream truck is circling
               and the kids are screaming
               because they need
               the ice cream and they
               need to catch the truck
               before it's too late,
               before it's too late.

      CHORUS:  they can't hear anymore.
               they can't hear anymore.

          II.  they can't hear 'cause they've got garbage disposals
               and the garbage keeps coming
               and it's bones and bones and bones
               are too much
               for the disposal,
               but they can't stop disposing
               and they keep disposing.

      CHORUS:  they can't hear anymore.
               they can't hear anymore.

         III.  they can't hear 'cause their lovers are yelling
               because they love the women
               but not those women
               and they're angry and they're
               angry 'cause they love women
               but not those women,
               but not those women.

      CHORUS:  they can't hear anymore.
               they can't hear anymore.

          IV.  they can't hear 'cause their phones are ringing
               and it's always urgent,
               and it's always women
               and it's urgent and it's
               ringing and it's their friends
               but they can't hear, it's too loud,
               they can't hear, it's too loud.

      CHORUS:  they can't hear anymore.
               they can't hear anymore.
               they can't hear anymore.
               they can't hear anymore.

      ENDING:  hey! hey! hey! hey!  (repeat and fade)
