The Palace Flophouse


The Palace Flophouse



from Chris Merritt:

Demos Of Nod (2009)

William the bouncer felt rejected by all but a knife
Horace was tired when he settled his debt with his life
The two suicides adjacent the vacant lot
A new pimp was hired, the shack emptied of its stock

So mack went to try and bargain for a
decent rent and steal some whiskey cause he
hadn’t seen any money for several years
for several years he’d spent
missing the mark

You know that Doc, he’s a stand up guy
but don’t he look a little lonely?
You know we’ve got to show that Doc who he’s loved by
and even have a little party at his place

Cannery Row
Why would we go?
It’s gonna be alright
It’s gonna be alright

Cannery Row
Why would we go?
It’s gonna be alright
It’s gonna be alright

The party was jumping, everybody was there making noise
Alfred the bouncer sharing whiskey with Mack and the boys, mixing with the music
The whole town was there
The girls got the night off work
With “Black Marigolds”, the whole place just went berzerk
It’s gonna be a good night!

A fight broke out from wall to wall and you could
hear the shouts all over town and so the
cops came down to join the party yeah the
(they hadn’t seen any money for several years, for several years)
cops came down to join the party
(they hadn’t seen any money for several years)

You know that Doc, he’s a stand up guy
but don’t he look a little lonely?
You know we’ve got to show that Doc who he’s loved by
and even have a little party at his place

He saved the girls when they got the flu
He even saved our little Darling
You know we’ve got to show that Doc who he’s loved by
and even have a little party at his place

Cannery Row
Why would we go?
It’s gonna be alright
It’s gonna be alright

Cannery Row
Why would we go?
It’s gonna be alright
It’s gonna be alright

Demo version in “Media”. This is a very explicit, dry summary of Steinbeck’s Cannery Row. One of the greatest novels ever written, and certainly an underrated Steinbeck work.
