The Lyrics

Leavin home, head for the road, rushing out the door
smudging along my foundation again, no blusher on my cheekbones
and the office place is so far away
And I hope to get it all done
At red lights, people watching me
As my makeup applications go on

Ooh big wide black eyeliner
On before I pull away
Big wide black eyeliner
Look like a racoon today


eyes full of sleep, and I look like a creep
watery, red and crusted
the mirror is way to small to see
my hair I think that I just mussed it
and my work place seems so far away
nothin seems like it has any fun
overtime means I'll have to stay
you know I got to get moving on

Ooh big wide black eyeliner
On before I pull away
Big wide black eyeliner
Look kinda gothic today

forgotten my lunch on the stairs at home
feeling just like a clown
I got to keep on keping on
and the traffic jam keeps inchin along
and I try to keep it together,
as I pull on the I-27
somebody flips the bird at me
I need a coffee when I get to work from seven -eleven

Ooh big wide black eyeliner
On before I pull away
Big wide black eyeliner
Look kinda gothic today

eyes full of sleep, and I look like a creep
feel so bad and run down
the mirror is way to small to see
my hair is messed, I'll just pull it around
and I'm drivin with some trepidation,
cause I can barely see
cause that big fat black eye stuff
is lookin funky way too thick, and I don't look too pretty

Ooh big wide black eyeliner
On before I pull away
Big wide black eyeliner
Look kinda gothic today

Mine eyes have seen young Higgins as he comes out of his gourd. And Royce is in the vineyard where the drapes of Goth are stored. (With apologies to Allan Sherman, the old-school Weird Al.)
