You can hold her hand

and show her how you cry

Explain to her your weakness so she understands

And then roll over and die

You can brave decisions

Before you crumble up inside

Spend your time asking everyone else's permission

And then run away and hide

Chorus:

You can sit on chimneys

And put some fire up your ass

No need to know what you're doing or waiting for

But if any one should ask?

Tell them I've been licking coconut skins

and we've been hanging out

Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins

And relieve us our doubt

Verse:

You can hold her eggs

But your basket has a hole

You can lie between her legs

And go lookin' for:

Tell her you're searching for her soul!

You can wait for ages

And watch your compost turn to coal

But time is contagious:

Everybody's getting old.

Chorus

Bridge

Final Chord Strum: G
