I hereby declare the beginning of the end The end of the show If I were you, I’d cut my losses Grab my stuff and go For mistakes will be made Your attention will fade And I’ll probably play too long Maybe I should just end with this song But I hereby declare the beginning of the end The end of the day Even though the sun hasn’t really risen yet There’s nothing new to say And why get out of bed When everything’s been said? Yes, why go to bed at all At the end of the day The end of the show The beginning of the end? “Oh what can be worth doin’ In this age of ugly ruin?” Someone is bound to complain “And what can be worth thinking When the atmosphere is shrinking And stupid songs keep running through my brain?” So I hereby declare the beginning of the end The end of the world Everything’s falling apart for me tonight So why bother with a rhyme that’s just too difficult to think of? I’ve seen it in the signs It’s the end of the line Even though the line has barely begun It’s the end of the world The end of the show The beginning of the end “Oh what can be worth writing When it isn’t that exciting?” Someone is bound to complain “And what can be worth trying When I’m far too busy dying And stupid songs keep running through my brain?” So I hereby declare the beginning of the end The end of this song I cried like Donald Fagen when I wrote this So go ahead and sue me if I play too long But my back is to the wall And I’m tired of the fight Let’s let apathy win tonight If this is the beginning It’s only the beginning of the end Beginning of the end Yes, my face is on the floor again I’m dizzy from the height Let’s let entropy win tonight If this is the beginning It’s only the beginning Of the end

Maggie woke at 6:05 Brushed the dreams out of her eyes And gazed in the mirror at a face full of compromise Took some time to set the stage Put on the lotion to control the age Maggie’s going undercover for another day Step out the door to the summer sun Hit the pavement for the morning run Feels good, but it’s not what you’d call fun Look at the hair, not a hint of gray You’d better not get in her way Maggie’s going undercover for another day Chorus: And it’s Fold the hands to hide the ring Smile doesn’t give away a thing Maggie’s going undercover for another day Talk the talk and wink the wink They’re gonna think that you think the think Maggie’s going undercover for another day Could’ve been on the silver screen Yeah she’s the queen of the could-have-been Plays both sides and everything in between Straight as an arrow with a twisted tip On this tightrope she never slips Maggie’s going undercover for another day Full of jokes and looking spry Looking no one in the eye Looking like the best kind of girl that money can buy Look at the hair, not a hint of gray It’s not a game, but she knows how to play Maggie’s going undercover for another day (Chorus) Back at home she let’s it slide She can be who she is inside Sad truth is there’s not much left to hide But in this world so full of lies All you can count on is your disguise Maggie didn’t blow her cover for another day Chorus: And it’s Fold the hands to hide the ring Smile doesn’t give away a thing Maggie didn’t blow her cover for another day Walk the walk and drink the drink They’re gonna know that you think the think Maggie didn’t blow her cover Maggie didn’t blow her cover Maggie’s going undercover for another day And another day And another day
