Etiquette Song is an unreleased song by the Mountain Goats. It was originally to be released on Nothing for Juice, but it did not make the final cut.


Rain washing your memory away
Fires burning somewhere around here
Clouds forming, clouds gathering
One minute in a long, long year
You've got one good reason for doing what you're going to do
I've got one thing holding me back from doing the same thing to you

In the San Gabriels the fire ate away
Rabbit-brush and the jimson weed
When the rain came it was like an old friend
When you came by you had just what I needed

You've got one hour left before something happens alright
And the then rain will come down tonight
