Who Sang Shit Creek? Dallas Crane

Release information
Release Date: 2000
length: 2:56
I'm gonna run what's the point in all this
I've seen it all now and I must admit
being a beggar on an oily old rag
is not a living for me

I'm starving hungry out of money and luck
I'd chew the ass off a low flying duck
protocol here is sodomy style greed
and it's a worry for me

I'm not a member of the modern day
there's someone at it in the bed that I made
they drained the carat out of all the gold hearts
and now they're coming for me

ain't nobody gonna see me cry
I'll be long gone before it's time to die
it's that, or join the material world soon
or they'll be comin' for me

and when I yawn it's because you spoiled my dream
I was in nirvana dreaming all the right things
you came along when all the money runs dry
and point the finger at me

you haven't heard a single word that I've said
I know you'd rather see this little guy dead
I sweep your litter and I hang up your coat
there's noting in it for me

sorry man I'm gonna have my way
I wanna lie here in the bed that I made
thank you porter I can take it from here
the early night is on me

'cause ain't nobody gonna see me down
I'm looking forward to when the time comes 'round
when being alive is being a human again
it's sentimental to me

I've seen it all now and I must admit
it's hard to row in a creek of shit
say goodbye now for the very last time
and take the paddle from me

it's kind of sad we gotta end this way
I'm starting over in a brand new day
being a beggar on an oily old rag
is not a living for me

I'm not offended by the modern day
I burn a candle for the friends that I made
see you round, maybe in heaven some time
don't put your money on me

ain't nobody gonna see me cry
twenty five is not a time to die
mothership's got her boarding hatch down
and she's waiting on me
