Track Name: Oh My La
You call this a home?
Well for now I guess it will do
Chimney shakes as the door hinges ache
Roof crumbs in my tea
So please believe me
It's the best that we can do
Compared to what? A trash truck
With packing peanuts
Hey it could be worse

Oh my la la la
Oh my la la la
It's the apartment song
Oh my la
If you got to belong

The holes in the ceiling
Are nice on a sunny day
The landlord's not your lifeguard
Mistakes a break for a holiday
The metal workers in the living room
Are eating all my chips and
Keeping every light on
How come I'm fishing out the crumbs?
I'm not your mother but I'm sure
She never bothered with you
So please believe me
It's where I outta gotta be!
Do we even have a front door (I don't know)?
Why is the mailbox filled with rocks?

Oh my la la la
Oh my la la la
It's the apartment song
Oh my la
If you got to belong

As the floor goes
I just want you to know
We went out with a banged up smile
Though brief what a wonderful week
You're my friend till the end
Which is now
Track Name: Moon, Honey
Would you build me a bonfire?
Shake out the snakes
From my shoes?
Shimmy with the tent I attempted to set up
You know I rush through instruction
Push every button and
Under pack my underwear

But I'm your moon
On a honeymoon for two
Moon, working just for you
I'm the moon!
Don't need no booze
To hang loose with you
To hang loose with you

Those hillbillies on the hill
Cussing up our backdrop
You know I'd fight em off
But you hate when I lose
And speaking of loss
Why on earth did you toss my puzzle
Into the creek?
Sometimes you are mean
Sometimes I miss the meaning
I listened when you told me
I don't listen

Moon, working just for you
I'm the moon!
Don't need no booze
To hang loose with you
To hang loose with you

Our love is the cactus
Or the cooler in the sun
We fight till we're blue
We fight
It's the kettle without the handle
Lift me up and pour me

Moon, working just for you
I'm the moon
Can I hang loose with you?
Hang loose with you
Hang loose with you
On the moon
Track Name: Drunk Feet
I'm walking down the street
I'm walking on my feet
Like they're brand new
I got no place to be
Tonight I'm sleeping high up
In a tree
Only owls talking at me

Stop thinking all the time
Stop thinking all the time
Could've been a horse
Just trotting around
All simplified

I got no corner stores
With everything I need
Potholes come and
Potholes go
Still who knows where this gutter leads...
Leads to the sea
(Uh huh)
Wonder why I tried so hard
Before
Drunk feet on the street
Warms me better than
A treasure chest of sweaters

I got no place to be
Tonight I'm sleeping high up
In a tree
Stop thinking all the time
Stop thinking all the time
Could've been a horse
Just trotting around
All mystified
Track Name: Chicken Bone
You are big in my mind
Must explain why I find
No rest
Should be carefree,
Breezy easy on the hips
I like those lips
When will I get used to you?
I get used to a bark
Instead of alarm clock

A chicken bone just killed my lady's dog
Chicken bone just killed my lady's
Chicken bone
Chicken bone

I'm a friend but not the best
You're a hound more like a hoover
Always plugged in bugging
Stop tearing me away
She's mine
But in your mind it's always
Me me me time

A chicken bone
When will you fall in line
Why do I fall behind?
With chicken bones
Chicken bone
That dandy dog just moved along
Till it found what it was looking for

With eyes that melt butter
Pulled a fast one
Closed the shutters
You're just a demon in a decent dress

A chicken bone just killed my lady's dog
Chicken bone just killed my lady's
Chicken bone
Chicken bone
You're just a demon in a decent dress
You're just a demon and you've
Made a mess
Track Name: I Got The Hiccups
Baby blue eyes
You never know if you don't try
And you've tried many times
Baby blue eyes
You'll never know if you don't try (harder)
Baby blues eyes
We're matching again
How'd this happen again
Soon we'll crack the same jokes
Baby blue eyes
Stop falling asleep in my arms
You know I hate the weight

Today's your day
Baby blue eyes say
I got the hiccups!
Today's your day
Baby blue eyes say
I got the hiccups!
In a Monday matinee

Baby blue
Don't lose your cool
It's just a firetruck rolling firemen
Though those tears could ease a fire
You're better off in the wild
Be the wild child
But not too wild

Today's your day
Baby blue eyes say
I got the hiccups!
Today's your day
Baby blue eyes say
I got the hiccups!
In a Monday matinee

Baby blue
Take it...
Track Name: Floppy Barb
Sad hallway
Busted vending machine
Got nothing on the mind
But where your husband's eating tonight
I believe your story
It's the mustache holding the lies
Why do we hide from misery?
The only commonality
Keeping us alive

Flopping Barb
Aint living large
Geez Floppy Barb
Floppy Barb
Aint living large
She's Floppy Barb

Don't you wonder where everyone goes
When your home's the only friend
You ever had
I can't breathe when your breath
Is smelling up my breath
Floppy Barb you gonna leave a scar

Excuse me Floppy Barb
Seems I skipped a couple steps
In our story
Brought me into your room
Said your deck
Had the greatest point of view
There should be a mountain or a harbor
Not a breast
Goddamn Floppy Barb
Living large
She's Floppy Barb

I went in half a man
Came out slightly less
Thought you had a plan
Getting pretty with the pigtails, polka dotted pants
In a trance you pranced
Just a pygmy in a zoo
Those monkeys know a thing or two
About being blue

Barbara!

Yeah Barb, I'm lonesome too
Let's get together sometime
