lyrics

check this strange beverage that falls out from the
sky, splashin’ bagdad on
the hudson in panther martin’s eyes, he’s high and
outside wearin’ candy ap-
ple red, scarlet gave him
twenty seven stitches in his
head, with a pint of green
chartruse ain’t nothin’
seems right, you buy the
sunday paper on a saturday
night.

can’t you hear the
thunder someone stole my
watch, i sold a quart of
blood and bought a half a
pint of scotch, some one
tell those chinamen on
telegraph canyon road,
when you’re on the bill
with the spoon there ain’t
no time to unload, so bye
bye baby baby bye bye.

droopy stranger lonely
dreamer toy puppy and the
prado, we’re laughin’ as
they piled into olmos’ el
dorado, jesus, whispered
eni meany miney moe,
they’re too proud to duck
their heads that’s why they
bring it down so low, so
bye bye baby baby bye bye.

the pointed man is smack
dab in the middle of july,
swingin’ from the rafters in
his brand new tie, he said i
can’t go back to that hotel
room all they do is shout,
but i’ll stay wichew baby
till the money runs out, so
bye bye baby baby bye bye.
