Cosmo and Manhattan

Story

When I was single I'd watch the happy couples in the bars where I played and wish I could be like them.  I wrote this song about a couple of regulars who, as it turned out, were not a couple but just very good friends.  It still made for a good story.

Lyrics

Cosmo and Manhattan come in here every Sunday and they

slide into their usual seats.

Spent the day out shopping, now it’s time for stopping for a 

cold one and a visit with me.

 

So happy to be here, so happy to feel this way

So happy that it’s Cosmo and Manhattan day.

 

Cosmo and Manhattan look kind of like each other, well they

say that happens after a while.

Toasting with their glasses, I’m sure they have their problems but you’d

never know it seeing them smile.

 

So happy to be here, so happy to feel this way

So happy that it’s Cosmo and Manhattan day.

 

We’re part of a scene, we live in a dream

It’s a world everyone’s alright with.

 

As I walk home alone, wish for one of my own

to share some early nights with, just like...

 

Cosmo and Manhattan are looking at their watches, and

Manhattan draws a check in the air.

Bracing for the subway, a much too early Monday

But when Sunday comes again they’ll be there

 

So happy to be here, so happy to feel this way

So happy that it’s Cosmo and Manhattan day.
