in the cockpit
Oh how I adore this sad, sad man... my spirit animal is Bukowski

The Mexican dancer shook her fans at me
and her ass at me
I didn't ask her to
and one women got mad
and ran out of the cafe
and it began raining
and you could hear it on the roof
and I didn't have a job
and I had 13 days left on the rent

Sometimes when a women runs out
on you like that
you wonder if it's not economics
you can't blame them
if I had to get fucked
I'd rather get fucked by
somebody with money

We're all scared
but when you're ugly
and don't have much left
you get strong
and I called the waiter over and said
"I think I'm going to turn this table over.
I'm bored.
I'm insane.
I need action.
Call in your goon.
I'll piss on his collar bone."

I got thrown out swiftly
it was raining
I picked myself up in the rain
and walked down the empty street
cotton candy sweet
dumb shit for sale
all the little stores locked
with 67 cent woolworth locks

I reached the end of the street
in time to see her get into a yellow cab
with another guy
I fell down by a garbage can
stood up and pissed against it
feeling sad and not sad
knowing there is only so much
they can do to you

Piss sliding down the corrugated tin

The philosophers must have had
something to say about this...
their luck against your destiny
winner take Barcelona--
next bar

The first Woolworth store was opened by Frank Winfield Woolworth on February 22, 1879, as Woolworth's Great Five Cent Store" in Utica, New York. Though it initially appeared to be successful, the store soon failed.[1] When Woolworth searched for a new location, a friend suggested Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Using the sign from the Utica store, Woolworth opened his first successful "Woolworth's Great Five Cent Store" on July 18, 1879, in Lancaster. He brought his brother, Charles Sumner Woolworth, into the business.

The two Woolworth brothers pioneered and developed merchandising, direct purchasing, sales, and customer service practices commonly used today. Despite its growing to be one of the largest retail chains in the world through most of the 20th century, increased competition led to its decline beginning in the 1980s, while its sporting goods division grew. The chain went out of business in July 1997, when the company decided to focus primarily on sporting goods and renamed itself Venator Group. By 2001, the company focused exclusively on the sporting goods market, changing its name to the current Foot Locker, Inc., changing its ticker symbol from its familiar Z in 2003 to its present ticker (NYSE: FL).

Retail chains using the Woolworth name survived in Austria, Germany, Mexico and United Kingdom as of early 2009. The similarly named Woolworths supermarkets in Australia and New Zealand are operated by Australia's largest retail company, Woolworths Group, a separate company with no historical links to the F. W. Woolworth Company or Foot Locker, Inc. However, Woolworths Limited did take their name from the original company, as it had not been registered or trademarked in Australia at the time.[2] Similarly, in South Africa, Woolworths Holdings Limited operates a Marks & Spencer-like store and uses the Woolworth name, but has never had any connection with the American company. The property development company Woolworth Group in Cyprus began life as an offshoot of the British Woolworth's company, originally operating Woolworth's department stores in Cyprus. In 2003, these stores were rebranded Debenhams, but the commercial property arm of the business retained the Woolworth's name.
