How Are You? Lyrics
[Vocal by Nellie McKay]

How are you?-I'm learning English
You're looking good-it's so hot today

We should keep in touch-oh, you'd better be going
It's a long long way-to your uncle's place

I got a job-it's just okay
And how's your dad?-it's hard to say
I miss you all-it's been so long
And who can say where love has gone?

And your life-is just beginning
And my life-is almost through
I've given up-never finished school
There was too much-too much work to do

How are you? Shall we get a soda?
You're looking good-it's so hot today
We should keep in touch-oh you'd better be going
It's a long long way-to your uncle's place

I was right there-right with your mother
And her last words-'fore she passed away
Did they tell you-about the promise?
Should I ask you? Tell me what'd they say?

And there's no way that you could help me
And you're barely better off than I
You're a beauty-sing like an angel
We're together for both our lives

How are you?-well I'm okay
You're looking good-it's hot today
I miss you all-it's been so long
And who can tell, where love has gone?

Now I've really liked, this conversation
It was long ago-you were just a child
It's getting late-I must be going
Life is hard sometimes-but I'll be alright

How are you?
Oh, I'm okay
This is a nice place
It's so hot today
