There it was in the shop window You were eyeing the Elvis Presley thermometer And there we were at the kosher country club All because of nostalgia And there was a grumpy old man Who made paintings in less than five minutes He was on his tour throughout New York State With his gimmick and his bad jokes I'm more like the painter than I am like you Because he and I are both living for ourselves And it makes me wanna buy you that Elvis Presley thermometer And tell you that it hasn't gone to waste

I found you outside on the sidewalk You were big and you were smellin like smoke I was alone but I carried you home And now you're sittin on my floor Freaky painting, freaky painting I don't have a spot for you Freaky painting, freaky painting I just don't know what to do I don't know why anybody'd wanna throw you out Cause you're pretty good lookin to me Some people said you might've been some ex-boyfriend's And some cryin girl just had to set you free Freaky painting, freaky painting Sittin there on the floor Freaky painting, freaky painting I think you're blockin the door

This sign used to be green This sign used to be green From everywhere I've been I just don't know what it means This sign used to be green Well you think that things won't change But they always rearrange Nothin ever likes to stay the same And the older that I get It's harder to forget I'll never go back home to better days This stuff was in the other room This stuff was in the other room Now I can't stand to see That cotton yellow gloom This stuff was in the other room Well you think that things won't change But they always rearrange Nothin ever likes to stay the same And the older that I get It's harder to forget I'll never go back home to better days This desk was on the other side This desk was on the other side You'd think that I was comatose Or just curled up and died This desk was on the other side This couch had only purple pillows This couch had only purple pillows They used to shine so bright In those little yellow windows This couch had only purple pillows This book was lyin on the table This book was lyin on the table I just don't understand Why nothing's ever stable This book was right here on the table But you think that things won't change But they always rearrange Nothin ever likes to stay the same And the older that I get It's harder to forget You just can't go back home to better days This sign used to be green This sign used to be green I wish I could tell you what it means This sign used to be green

I love the woods They are so solitary I love the sea Outside the monastery I love the monks They show me how to live I wanna go to the city I take a cab Down to the big brown building I'm at the lab I love experimenting I love the mice They never get afraid I wanna talk to God I'll sail away Riding on a big dead body I'll go to sleep I won't tell anybody I love the mice They show me how to live I wanna go to the city

I'm in a ghost town Yeah, yeah Nothin to do but just walk around I saw a cowboy He said hello I am a locksmith Don't you know? Two clowns At the front of the room They are a circle Don't you know? Maybe it rained Maybe it will snow I'm in a ghost town Don't you know? Two clowns At the front of the room They are a circle Don't you know? Maybe it rained Maybe it will snow I'm in a ghost town Don't you know? I'm in a ghost town Yeah, yeah Nothin to do but just walk around I saw a cowboy He said goodbye I am a locksmith It's time to die!

I sat in a bathtub With a woman of ninety-three She said do you have a cold I said Mary Don't tell me if it rains tomorrow Tell me if it rains today Hello my name is Senator Tom Right next to me is my best friend His name is Senator Greg We've come to show you Our latest discovery We found a way We found a way We found a way To bring you all back home I said Mary That's a mighty fine hat you got on Where could I find myself A hat such as that? She said sorry kid This hat was a gift from President Coolidge In 1925 And I said Mary That can't be true Cause Calvin Coolidge was president In 1842 She said you caught me in a lie This hat was a gift from my father He was the president to me

about

"very groovy and nice mixing choices...it's just sooo.. YOU." - ethan

"...both laugh-out-loud and introspective...“I Love the Woods” veers off into a wistful lap steel solo...deftly avoids...pitfalls...the album title!...Recommended." –Razorcake

Blue cassette available on BEAR Records (www.dyinghorse.com)
