GET READY FOR THE FALL
(by Steve Key & Deborah Kirk (c)2007)

Pour out the iced tea, honey
Put the quilt back on the bed
I can feel that autum chill
Snuggle up for the fall ahead

Taste the apple fresh from the orchard
Makes me think about Adam and Eve
They survived the fall from grace
And stuck together like falling leaves

CH Get ready for the fall, get ready for the fall
 We're headed for some hard times, baby -- let's get ready for the fall

I got a little money in the bank
Right now there’s food in the fridge
But there's talk about Christmas layoffs
Sure seems so sacrilege

Even if we've got to beg or borrow
With paradise so far from view
Your love is my salvation
I'd take the fall for you

CH Get ready for the fall, get ready for the fall
We're headed for some hard times, baby -- let's get ready for the fall

BR:  When the clocks fall back
Add some wood up on the stack
Then crawl back in the sack
Until spring comes back at last
