Sitting in The Laundromat (noon) I put my dirty laudry 
Into a dirty sack 
I stuffed it full of everything 
The shirt right off my back 
Today I read the papers 
 And they made me fell depressed 
Thinking maybe I might change the world 
If all my pants were pressed 
So I'm sitting in the laudromat 
Getting my clothes clean 
Pouring all my money 
Into the big machine
I made a resolution 
Things have got to stop 
This world is such a dirty place 
So I'll get out the spots 

But what is the solution 
For all my dirty clothes 
I used a little too much bleach 
And now they're full of holes 

It's getting close to midnight 
And everything's the same 
I was hoping for more progress 
And I'm running out of change 
I've gone through all the cycles 
And I've seen the dryers spin 
Now everything's in tatters
 Held with safety pins 
Just sitting in the laundromat  
Books and magazines 
Outside's the world's a dirty place 
Tearing at the seams 
But if I can get these clothes washed 
Things will change no doubt 
Still it might take forever  
For the stains to all come out 
Come out

I’m gonna go to Pennsylvania Because they say there I’ve got a friend Gonna go to Pennsylvania Hoping that this heartbreak will end I’m leaving soon for Pennsylvania Gonna watch a marching band Maybe go and join in a 4H club See who wins the medal for best ham I’ll stare down an empty coal mine Look at that broken bell Check out a little Marcel Duchamp Maybe watch a soft-ball game as well Why don’t you come with me to Pennsylvania? You and me in a Trailways bus Corned beef in our picnic basket With enough beer for the two of us I’ll stare down an empty coal mine Look at that broken bell Check out a little Marcel Duchamp Maybe watch a soft-ball game as well I’m off today for Pennsylvania Wanna see if what they say is true Because I need a friend something awful To fill this empty space left by you

When you're in love 
It's strange how things get 
What you remember 
 And what you forget 
iIfe is a room  
 Stuffs laying about
 Love takes a broom 
 And sweeps the junk out 

I see on your face that you have a doubt 
But when you're in ove you'll figure it out 

When you're in love 
It takes all you've got 
 To tell how you feel 
 To someone's who's not
 Life is a word 
 That needs explanation 
Love comes along 
And does the translation 

I see that you're asking how I know it's true 
But when you're in love you'll see it my way, too 

When you're in love 
 You'll know what I mean 
In a place where the plants 
 Are all evergreen
 Life is that garden, 
 Seeds laying around 
 Love makes the flowers 
 Grow in the ground 

I see on your face, by that look in your eyes 
That you're in love and love never lies 

When you're in love

about

The Yokai (Traditional Monsters in English) are a type of supernatural creature in Japanese folklore.

The term Yokai essentially refers to mischievous characters with supernatural or unexplainable capacities.

The musical world portrayed by Dick Turner and Traditional Monsters is something of a bestiary filled with borderline characters in search of hypothetical happiness, painted against a background of desperate humor...
