Hey, look out for my glass up there man!
Make it a double or eh
Somebody will sing
I don't know
Y'all pall me that bottle

My stomach squeal just a little more
Pulls up to my soap-box door
Tied to the driver's fence
Bourbon and coke possessed words
Or was it just an accident?
And so a...
Before I could ask was it the east or west side?
The wheels of a bandwagon cut very deep
And as they pulled away I could see her words
Well I picked them up brushed them off
And you wouldn't believe
And bring along the bottle and a president'
And-eh sometimes it's not so easy, baby
Talks sees looks and feels like you
Gets very lonely up this road baby

On a bicycle built for fools
And he say 'you don't look the way you usually do'
He say 'look like you ain't got no coins to spare'
I just picked up my pride form underneath the pay phone
And sometimes it's not so easy
Talks sees looks and feels like you

And I'm on my way straight home to you
To make sure my friend's here with me too
So you fill my cup full of sand
Sharing lipstick around the broken edge
And your cat he attacks me from his pill-box ledge
Man, my shadow comes in line before you
Specially when your only friend
And you do the same just like him
Lord it's so lonely here hmm yeah
Pass me that bottle over there
