"Trilogy (Circa 1967)" lyrics - LOUDON WAINWRIGHT III

"Trilogy (Circa 1967)"

I've got two lumps
No love
She wasn't home as I had planned
Low thoughts
No tears
I hold my life in my right hand

By the sea my daddy caught me
He said, "Your strength will surely slack"
Well, I been blushing for a long time
But now and then
I get him back

La la
La la
La la la la la la la la

Four days
On the fifth I ate beef stew
Hare Krishna
If you save me, I'll serve you

My lawyer shook her head and she told me
"I'm gonna tell you very plain:
Do exactly as I ask you
And if they ask you
Plead insane"

Loves me
The Baptist salesman bought me cheap
So very nice to get some sleep, oh

Mister Steinbeck, I can see it
Your valley sinking in the sea
San Diego, I must warn you
Take my advice:
Climb a tree

La la
La la
La la la la la la la la
