The Lyrics

[saxophone]


Went to the butchers, they sold me rotten meat.
Found out late,when I started to eat.
Well, another rotten day,
You'll puke the night away,
Vomit 'bout everything.

These 'use by dates' show the meat's so old.
You know it's true when you see the mold.
And it's taken you so long,
You decide to write songs,
How you'll eat about everything.

You used to think that it was so easy,
Just eat that crap and then you'll feel queasy.
Yes you're heaving,
You're heaving now.

Just one more bite, and then you'll feel crappy.
Another chew, but you won't be happy.
But you're dying,
You're dying now.

[instrumental]

Way down the street there's a medical place.
Doc opens the door, sees your very green face.
He pumps your stomach clean, cures your kidney and your spleen,
And you pay about anything.

He's got this dream about buying some land
And his son's the butcher, now you understand
He wants to quit this town, he'll even 'put you down'
He'll do just about ANYthing

Uh, he don't care if you're approving
Your bank account he's all for removing
Coz he's rotten, he's a heart of stone.

When you wake up, it's just now dawning.
Snatched your money, there was no warning.
You're bankrupt,
You're bankrupt now !


[saxophone]

life is nothing but laugh and cry and sometimes some pain in the guts. You made me laugh this time I hope it will be long for the teardrops. Thanks Belle

Thanks Francisco, I'm glad that you liked it. : ) No teardrops on the horizon. Now, sometimes that is just a style that I use.
