lyrics

If I caught you so blatantly baby it’s crazy
You’re lately not looking at me
Because I somewhat out loud said the difference in crowd
Prompted you to choose the alternate key
There’s a ring in your hearing, the check’s in the clearing
There’s somebody cheering for me
And I’m wondering still if the bottle will fill
To the top or just pop like you said it would naturally

I’m sick of the jingle, I’m stuck in the jungle
It’s all getting boring to me
Still I increasingly stupid and sheepishly
Asked you what that’s supposed to mean
You said it wouldn’t seem it but baby I’d deem it
Unfitting for me to come clean
And then soon you thankfully calmly but angrily
Said to me “baby, that thought is quite frankly obscene”

Now I’m such a wreck that you scared half the heck
Out of me when you started to scream
It’s a map to the core which I’ve mentioned before
But it’s almost exactly the same
As the theme from the film that you saw when you fell
Down the stairs and that damaged your brain
But I got you to belt it, I’m sure that you felt it
From where you were sitting which was basically
Just out of frame

But there’s no sense in snickering, lying or bickering
Who stole what from whom first
Because now nearly twice a day I’m sure I’ll evaporate
I have such a sinister thirst
I have to confess it’s a miserable mess
But at least we’ve avoided the curse
And of all of the ways for you to get paid
This turn of phrase happened to take a turn for the worst

But sweet baby I’m not that crazy I’m
Just late this time in getting home
I stole the rhyme but not the dollar sign
I’ve just resigned myself to living alone
