We could sleep in the bags under my eyes like hammocks This bad lucks surely got to end soon
I spent most of this week
In anything with an elasticated waste
I Wont to drop to my hands and knees like that scene in Platoon I feel like that dying alien in Cocoon
But i only had the one drink.. But i had it 10 times
“Were’s that 10er i lent you”
That phone call ripped out my soul Like a bong smoking Dementour
But I've got to get back on the horse
No i dont mean that horse!
I mean a horse like an animal
Actually i don’t know if i mean a horse like an animal I mean a horse, a horse hypothetical
When i talk about this horse hypothetical or conventional I didn’t mean a horse at all
I ment a bicycle
Lets go to Birds and get an elephants foot
Thats bound to cheer us up
Your way more than anything I've ever deserved Your beautiful
Your ginger cake
If i had a bath and a lizard
You’d be a flake
Id even go as far as to say
Your batenburg
She only had to have the one drink
