lyrics

Tell me what reduces you
Just put it in my ear.
I’ll mix you to a fine paste
And keep you for a year
On my shelf.
Oh, it’s not healthy but it pleases me.

Tell me how to get your goat
I’ll chase it round the field.
Let me put my kid gloves on
And get my daily yield
Keep it for myself.
Won’t make me wealthy but it pleases me.

I’ll roll you up in carpet
And polish off your shoes.
I’ve got three cousins, all twenty,
And they all sing the blues
By themselves.
Oh it pleases me.

Oh, let me keep you in a jar.
I’ll let you out sometimes but you won’t get far away
I’ve got so many different ways to make you stay

I’ll lose you in the buckwheat
We’ll go against the grain.
I’ll eat up all your sweetmeats
And by that I mean your brain
Speaks for itself.
Oh, it pleases me

I like a bit of chicken,
I like a bit of cheese.
You’ve had me on my elbows
I’ll bring you to your knees
With my mouth.
Oh, the mouth on me.

Oh, let me keep you in a jar.
I’ll let you out sometimes but you won’t get far away
I’ve got some caramel suede shoes to make you stay

Tell me what reduces you
Just put it in my ear.
I’ll mix you to a fine paste
And keep you for a year
On my shelf.
Oh, it’s not healthy but it pleases me.

I like a bit of chicken,
I like a bit of fish.
Climb inside my dreamboat,
I’ll hop into your dish,
We’ll sail south.
Oh, the salty seas.

Oh, let me keep you in a jar.
I’ll let you out sometimes but you won’t get far away
I’ve got some midnight mystery clues to make you stay

Oh, let me keep you in a jar.
I’ll let you out sometimes but you won’t get far away
I’ve got so many different ways to make you stay
I’ve got some whisky water blues to make you stay
There’s girls just like me trying to catch you every day
