Dead Fish, Lame Duck

lyrics

Honey, I'm running late for work
You kids be good, help with them dishes
And honey, say 'hi' to the girls
With the ribbons and pearls, pretty dresses
I got drinks with clients
Don't wait up
It's better you don't know
I gone bust
Belly up
Like a dead fish
Like a lame duck

Arrive 9:45
Hey Lizitsky, how's the wife?
Heck, I'm sad to hear that...
So go, get out and play the field
You old dog, you just need something to laugh at...
I heard Johanson took a dive from the 16th floor
I heard it all before pal
I gotta run
'Cause I gone bust
Belly up
Like a dead fish
Like a lame duck

Da da da, da da da
Boom crash stutter
Lips that splutter
Just like when I tried to tell mother
I wet the bed
Da da da, da da da
Bones shattered, side-walk splattered
Just like when I tried to tell mother
I messed my pants

Hey Johansson how's the wife?
Did surgery go well?
Gee, I'm sad to hear that
It's cold under the bridge
So burn some dead accounts
Ain't a lot to laugh at
Heard the doctors pulled the plug on her machine
Least now she'll never have to know
That I gone bust
Belly up
Like a dead fish
Like a lame duck
Gone bust...
