Blanketful of skin, a thin heap of knees
Doing no good, Cindy and me.
I can see the writing on the wall
Waiting for the other foot to fall

Loose hips sink ships
Scratched records skip
Horny as cuckolds, everyone slips
The shelves are stacked so thick with rival brands
Every local hipster starts a band

Chasing a fast thrill, tripping on barbed wire
Smoking out the window surveying your empire
Feminine tomboy in a clawfooted bathtub
Running the taps out, starting a blood grudge

Collars get hot, arsonists fight liars
Swear words can wear swords
And polygraphs light fires
Put down your hands your gestures are obscene
Like punctured tires on a limousine

Some stand aloof
The pure and the chaste
The prudes and romantics
On a church steeple chase
Leave me be, I have nothing to give
The hard work I’d begun has all ended

Strangers kiss her feet,
Stolen jewels adorn her,
Come this time of year
No one ought to scorn her
