Girls are so Neat

Download Song

From "Jupiter the Balloon Horse"




Ive been digging towards death with this blue plastic cup

Pull the tap horizontal and don't let her up
All the best songs remind you that nobody cares
So let's pound on the tables and stand on the chairs

And let's drink to the girls
For as long as we can
To the ones we call lover
And the ones we call friend
Let's drink to our mothers
And the girls on the street
And if I'm drunk
It's just 'cause the girls are so neat
And if I'm drunk
It's just 'cause the girls are so neat

I get thrown through a window at least once a year
I have broken 12 ribs and did not shed a tear
Had to put down my dog, and I was not distressed
But when I think of the girls, I'm a misty-eyed mess

So let's drink to the girls
For as long as we can
To the ones we call lover
And the ones we call friend
Let's drink to our mothers
And the girls on the street
And if I'm drunk
It's just cause the girls are so neat
And if I'm drunk
It's just cause the girls are so neat

The good soldiers before me they suffered in awe
Of their wives and their daughters and sisters-in-law
Put this cup to your ear, you can still hear their ghosts
Slurring their way through the king of all toasts.

Let us drink to the girls
For as long as we can
To the ones we call lover
To the ones we call friend
Let's drink to our mothers
And the girls on the street
And if I'm drunk
It's just cause the girls are so neat
And if I'm drunk
It's just cause the girls are so neat
