lyrics

POL POT-BELLY

rich man’s grown a Pol Pot-belly
hey little boy come spin the wheel
let’s watch souls melt into jelly
what’s it take to seal the deal, Red?
what’s it take to seal the deal?

the coins shine bright in the wishing well
but the black crow sings to the beggarman-watch out Sam it’s a urinal.
been seventeen years since I left home
but the black crow sings to the wanderer-
not yet Sam you must still roam.
It’s an endless day in the cloth of my sack
but the black crow sings to the prophet-hold up Sam you can’t go back.

I’m down, way down
got to wearin’ my clown frown
I got dry heaves
no way I’m gonna leave.
down, way down
got to wearin’ my clown frown
I got dry heaves
no way I’m gonna leave.

oh sing ye for the woman ages jailed
oh sing ye for the woman ages jailed
oh sing ye for the woman ages jailed

did god make kings to lead the war
or did kings make god to hide deaths door?
did god make rich men to give us more
or did the rich make gods to tame the poor?

look at he!
he an old burned tree
look at he!
he an old burned tree
a tweedle-dee-dee
a tweedle-dee-dee
he an old burned tree
an old burned tree
a tweedle-dee-dee
a tweedle-dee-dee
an old burned tree
an old burned tree
a tweedle-dee-dee
look at me! (etc.)

breech baby go on home
go on home breech baby go on home (random repeat)
had me a beer and i started making faces
dropped the mirror and it cracked in many places
put it out for the trashman to take away
had no doubt it'd be gone by noon that day
four hours later i went outside to check
ain't tryin' to rate her but she was a skinny damn human wreck
she were lookin' at herself in the broken glass reflection
she'd fallen off the top shelf and smashed in many sections
"is it for sale? it's just the thing i need!"
i said "your lookin' pale, for a penny it's yours indeed!"
"i'm getting some cash at 11 o'clock tonight,
and i'll be your honey if you bet your horses right!"
had me another beer and i started making faces
dropped the mirror again and it cracked in many places

breech baby go on home
go on home breech baby go on home (random repeat)
look at we! (etc.)
