PATIENCE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE

Patience doesn't live here anymore.
She packed her things and walked right out the door.
Never even said goodbye.
Everybody's asking why.
Patience doesn't live here anymore.

Chorus

Maybe it was too much fussing and complaining.
Too many days of heavy clouds and raining.
Too many quibbles, quarrels, and complaints,
from people who claim to be what they ain't.
She's not at all the gal she was before.
Patience doesn't live here anymore.

She's been appearing lately on TV.
But she sure don't look like the same old gal to me.
She won't take no lip, won't listen to complaints,
from people who pretend to be what they ain't.
She looks them in the eye,
and they all wonder why,
Patience doesn't live here anymore.

Chorus

Maybe it was too much fussing and complaining.
Too many days of heavy clouds and raining.
Too many quibbles, quarrels, and complaints,
from people who claim to be what they ain't.
She's not at all the gal she was before.
Patience doesn't live here anymore.
