I’ve Been Tired
One two three
She’s a real left winger ‘cause she been down south
And held peasants in her arms
She said I could tell you a story that could make you cry
What about you?
I said Me too
I could tell you a story that will make you cry
And she sighed Ah
I said I wanna be a singer like Lou Reed
I like Lou Reed she said sticking her tongue in my ear
Let’s go, let’s sit, let’s talk
Politics go so good with beer
And while we’re at it baby, why don’t you tell me one of your biggest fears?
I said Losing my penis to a whore with disease
Just kidding I said
Losing my life to a whore with disease
She said Excuse me please?
I said Losing my life to a whore with disease
I said Please... I’m a humble guy with a healthy desire
Don’t give me no shit because...
I’ve been tired
I tell a tale of a girl, but I call her a woman
She’s a little bit older than me
Strong legs, strong face, voice like milk, breasts like a cluster of grapes
I can’t escape the ways she raise me
She’ll make you feel like Solomon
Be one of your babies even if you have no one
(And while we’re at it baby, why don’t you tell me one of your biggest fears?)
Took my sleep after setting my loins on fire
But that’s OK because...
I’ve been tired
I’ve been tired
T-i-r-e-d spells it
Spells it
