With all of these online meetings, many of us tend to wear a nice shirt with sweatpants or a suit with old shorts. We look good from the waist up.

Lyrics

I Just Miss Pants © 2020 J Scott Franklin

I’ve been locked in and holed up
for so many days I’ve lost count of movies I’ve seen
I’ve fixed most of what I had never had time for
and spent more than my share of green

Each day is Saturday, each day is Monday
like Saturday, Monday and Now
I’m living on texts and on oxidized cans
of food I’m glad I never threw out

I miss seeing faces, watching friends laugh
coming home way too late
restaurants, ball games, bands
and museums churches and structured days

Yes, I long for the things and the ways that it was
if I could have just one more chance
But I fire up Zoom in a dress shirt and smile
and most of all I just miss pants

People smell great when they comb their hair
and show up in the pixels of screen
Like Hollywood Squares and the Brady Bunch
meeting for business while cat licks & cleans

Your artwork is crooked, I can see all your books
and you plant, it needs water last week
which one of you, or could it be two
Please hit mute til your turn to speak

I miss seeing faces, watching friends laugh
coming home way too late
restaurants, ball games, bands
and museums churches and structured days

Yes, I long for the things and the ways that it was
if I could have just one more chance
But I fire up Zoom in a dress shirt and smile
and most of all I just miss pants
