my hot ruined Casper,

the girls at the station,

they fall down laughing.

Tell me if I rub too hard,

the alcohol can burn you up.

Doc Cohen’s really nice,

but he’s all bone and Jell-O

and doesn’t deserve how bad

she treats him. Shy, like you,

and I’ll bet he never lets on

how his wife wakes him up,

got a gun to his head,

or hers, poor thing. Us,

we’ll get close when you’re out.

You need a little loving …

So get those legs back,

I’ll take you clubbing,

we’ll hit the Boat, or Pep’s.

That woman, I don’t know

how some people don’t like life,
