Cal's Liquors

I’ve been going to Cal’s Liquors for the last twenty years 
it’s on the same block as the check cashing place
so that makes it convenient 
I told the owner Ravi
(I don’t know what happened to Cal)
the liquor store and the check cashing place should get married
move in together and have a baby
like a little dollar store
then it would be like a one stop shop
you could get some money
buy some cheap whiskey 
and get some good dollar food
all in one place
now that’s what I call a plan
I oughta have a job on the business planning commission 
or some such thing for coming up with ideas like that 
(I wonder what happened to Cal)
but you probably gotta wear a suit and tie all day
or at least a shirt and tie
and sit in a lot of boring meetings 
and have dubious office potlucks
I wouldn’t have any interest in a job like that
(Ya know, I’m beginning to think there never was a Cal)
