lyrics

It's a capital morning.
I'm especially proud to be alive.

I didn't know they were watching me.
Not that I'm fond of my privacy.
They tried to sell me tickets to the show.
One to which I simply didn't want to go.

The vultures wanted me for food.
I wouldn't fight so I stripped down into the nude.
I made them think I was out of my mind
but I feel find.

Bell of the ball at the 7-11
Took my temperature with the back of her hand.
Now I'm King Kong. I'm Lou Reed.
Come with me I'll teach you how to make believe.
Lesson 1, sing along.
Lesson 2, there's nothing you could do wrong.

Deep in the desert in a stolen Benz
We're making lots of colorful friends.
I can't believe you left your alibi behind.
Here, you can use mine.

Holding your hand, it's the 4th of July.
Cotton candy blooms in a lapis lazuli sky.

Take all your doubts, banish them today
as usual I'm in the mood to just fly away.
Give me your sea-shell necklace. Take off your shoes.
What should we listen to, the Beatles or the blues?

If you get lonely, as we both sill be
during my harrowing but brief captivity
Baby don't worry, Baby don't cry.
Just sing all your favorite lullabies.
Sing all our favorite lullabies.
