lyrics

CHANGE MY BUTS

That’s the quake beneath the earth-bed
From which each solitary one of us is spawned
And it’s true I get distracted by the night times
And it’s only fair that you should be forewarned

That’s the creaking tension building in the jawbone
Of a man who’s drifted nowhere out you see
And a mistranslation states there were no virgin
And the scholars and the needy disagree

As the situation stands
I’ll change my buts to ands
What do you think would happen if we tried?

And it’s true you’re rather spacially indifferent
And you’d rather dry your hair out in the sun
And I’m milling in and out of high society
And I’ve brought a little pillow called my thumb

Asked to move aside his buddy here’ll play something
Oh the cadillacs and big feet took the floor
Couldn’t pack up this old suitcase for a guilt trip
Though the foreign girl prefered what came before

As the situation stands
I’ll change by buts to ands
I’ll change my can’ts to cans
I’ll change my buts to ands
What do you think would happen if we tried?
