Would you have wanted All that I promised If I had obliged To give you the things that you’d like And I knew I’d be there to give you all That you need Oh, you always knew What I could never do You always knew Just what I could never do In your face I see a reflection of me Again and again, every day And I wish I’d never See either face again Leave us both behind And find a new way A new life again Again and again and again Oh, it’s too late baby I’ve gotta get out now - I can’t stay around How many times did I sacrifice? While you were bringing me down Would you have wanted All that I promised If I had obliged To give you the things that you’d like

Headed down to Bridgeport, gonna buy me a plane Take it to my everlasting dreams Oh those Okinawa trails, they lead me to something And what that means to me, I can’t explain Well I’ll see my mother and my father waiting there I’ll see my baby sister and her shiny golden hair In my life I’ve seen some things that make me weep But now I’m finding something I can bear Well it’s late at night on an early Friday morning And I can see a silver sky forming And maybe I should go and have a lie down And just dream a dream of a better time Well I grew up by a stream in Massachusetts I would hobble down to the banks of the riverbed I would sing with the sounds of the rushing water Until my belly grumbled and up the hill I’d head Well it’s late at night on an early Friday morning And I can see a silver sky forming And maybe I should go and have a lie down And just dream a dream of a better time

I am painting myself Shot in the heart I am holding my own hand And waiting in the dark One, two, three, four five six seven eight nine Arrows up and down my spine And three monkeys on my back And four large smokestacks And two of me and you Do you like my mess? Do you like my red lipstick? Do you like these flowers in my hair, And how I am sitting pretty over there? Do you see my chest torn apart? I painted the veins of my dislocated heart Three vultures circling overhead I think they’re waiting for me To drop dead

Sweet Sweet Sweet I’m in the pocket of my baby’s jeans And we are riding in the rumble seat Of his 1930 Model A Ford Victoria Skee-dop-beep-beep Sweet Sweet Sweet A piece of cherry pie is all I need To add a dollop of your whipping cream And I will lick it off The tip of your tongue Your hand or your thumb Hey that sounds sweet Sweet Sweet Sweet A little music playing in my dreams I’m tossing, turning while I tap my feet To the sound of the record spinning In the jukebox, baby Sweet Sweet Sweet A little music playing in my dreams I’m tossing, turning while I tap my feet To the sound of the record spinning In the jukebox, baby

My baby works all day My baby sleeps all night My baby works all day And my baby sleeps all night But when he gets a minute, he always treats me right My baby bought me a piano My baby loves to hear me play My baby bought me a piano And my baby loves to hear me play I’m writing him a ditty that I’ll play for him someday My friend was tall and lean She had a razor sharp tooth My friend was tall and lean She had a razor sharp tooth But when we got to fighting, I gave my friend the boot I’m gonna write a long letter To my old forsaken friend I’m gonna write a long letter To my old forsaken friend It’s gonna say I miss you, and how have you been It’s gonna say I miss you, and how have you been
