Lyrics
I keep it goin' day by day,
Drink my coffee, smile and say,
"Doin' fine... how's it treatin' you?"
My smile comes from a movie scene,
Words from Sunday's magazine,
Who I am, I only wish I knew.
Chorus:
I wanna fish and get fat, I'm done with all of that!
I wanna fish and get fat... I ain't comin' back!
I'm movin' backward stride by stride, I'm sliced I'm diced, I'm crispy fried.
City's closin' in on me,
The windows to my soul are sad reflections of a billboard ad:
Buy one now and get another free!
Chorus
I'm genuine synthetic fake, lock me up and let me bake,
Turn me over now, I think I'm done,
Sprinkle me with MSG, a word or two of sympathy,
Slap me 'round and throw me in a bun!
I keep it goin' day by day,
Drink my coffee, smile and say,
"Doin' fine... how's it treatin' you?"
My smile comes from a movie scene,
Words from Sunday's magazine,
Who I am, I only wish I knew.
Chorus:
I wanna fish and get fat, I'm done with all of that!
I wanna fish and get fat... I ain't comin' back!
I'm movin' backward stride by stride, I'm sliced I'm diced, I'm crispy fried.
City's closin' in on me,
The windows to my soul are sad reflections of a billboard ad:
Buy one now and get another free!
Chorus
I'm genuine synthetic fake, lock me up and let me bake,
Turn me over now, I think I'm done,
Sprinkle me with MSG, a word or two of sympathy,
Slap me 'round and throw me in a bun!
Chorus
River river, wash me clean, carry me away.
River river, wash me clean, carry me away.
River river, wash me clean, carry me away.
River river, wash me clean... 'cause I can't stand another lousy day!
I move my mouth, the words come out,
First a whisper, then a shout,
No one hears a thing I have to say,
The sell-by date stamped on my neck is out of date, but what the heck
No one's buying anything today!
Chorus
River river, wash me clean, carry me away.
River river, wash me clean, carry me away.
River river, wash me clean, carry me away.
River river, wash me clean... 'cause I can't stand another lousy day!
I move my mouth, the words come out,
First a whisper, then a shout,
No one hears a thing I have to say,
The sell-by date stamped on my neck is out of date, but what the heck
No one's buying anything today!
Chorus x 4
