lyrics

Badluck Bill gave me a notebook
(doot doot doo, doot doot doo doo)
I burned it in the backyard
(doot doot doo, doot doot doo doo)
Now his luck is sweeping sideways
(doot doot doo, doot doot doo doo)
In my ears and out my heart
(doot doot doo, doot doot doo doo)

Nothing's sweet when we're retreating
To our separate boroughs with our
Separate rooms and separate attics
Don't think about anything romantic!
You're as perfect as I want it
You're as pretty as they come
Listen and keep quiet, you're
My audience of no-one!

I'm sitting crouching on a stoop, wearing my pajama pants, three pm in the afternoon.
I really wish you would miss me a small fraction of how much I don't think that I miss you.

Badluck Bill gave me the finger
(doot doot doo, doot doot doo doo)
I burned it in the backyard
(doot doot doo, doot doot doo doo)
Difficult, dating a singer
(doot doot doo, doot doot doo doo)
Yeah, I think it's really hard
(doot doot doo, doot doot doo doo)

Working on it this time from the
Bottom up on the way back
We saw the city and I touched your
Arm in all the best places
I knew it on the platform
Where we said goodbye, I'm keeping it up
Telling myself stories, saying
I'm not dead, I'm writing again!

HEY! I'm sitting crouching on a stoop, wearing my pajama pants, three pm in the afternoon.
I really wish you would miss me a small fraction of how much I don't think that I miss you.
I'd be sad when you would leave before you had to go.
Now I'm screwed 'cause I don't believe in anything, although...

I did Badluck Bill a service
(doot doot doo, doot doot doo doo)
I shot him in the backyard
(doot doot doo, doot doot doo doo)
Now he's only cursing yard cats
(doot doot doo, doot doot doo doo)
We are better off apart
(doot doot doo, doot doot doo doo)

They think I'll end up the guy with the
Trash who rides the train from end to
End but how did he turn from a
Baby to another thing?
I try and keep my head above the
Water and my paper dry
While I kick and hold a pen
This is all I ask of them!
