I’ve been taking my time for a long time
Putting my feet up all odds
Speaking English as a foreign language
Any words that I haven’t forgot
I’ve been thinking how I can’t be bothered
To wash the dishes or remake the bed
What’s the point when I could just… instead?

I’ve been hanging as a fairy trif raf
Somewhere along the go hobrose
I don’t think it’s gonna be much longer
So I know they’re up, harlequin old codes

Love is a bourgeois construct
So I’ve given up on the bourgeoisie
I’ve been taking my time for a long time
Putting my feet up all odds
Speaking English as a foreign language
Any words that I haven’t forgot
I’ve been thinking how I can’t be bothered
To wash the dishes or remake the bed
What’s the point when I could just… instead?

I’ve been hanging as a fairy trif raf
Somewhere along the go hobrose
I don’t think it’s gonna be much longer
So I know they’re up, harlequin old codes

Love is a bourgeois construct
So I’ve given up on the bourgeoisie
