HEIR TODAY
© Bob Wright


I can’t believe
you left it to me
what am I
supposed to do with it
of all of the things
it coulda been
why’d you go
and leave me that

you coulda left me a hat
you know I got
the head for that
you coulda left me
an old pair of shoes
you know that I would get
some use out of those

I can’t believe
you left it to me
what am I
supposed to do with it
of all of the things
it coulda been
why’d you go
and leave me that

I can always use clothes
or one of those little round
red clown noses
I don’t know
what you were thinking
you must have been up
all night drinking

I can’t believe
you left it to me
what am I
supposed to do with it
of all of the things
it coulda been
why’d you go
and leave me that




here today
heir tomorrow
we all have a pretty short stay
with all the grief
and all the sorrow
did you even consider
all the taxes
I’d pay
on it

I can’t believe
you left it to me
what am I
supposed to do with it
of all of the things
it coulda been
why’d you go
and leave me...
why’d you go
and leave me...
why’d you go
and leave me at all

He is a multi-instrumentalist, an award winning songwriter and Bob Wright songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
