lyrics

Almost skinny as a corkscrew
Your vacation's just some cornmeal
That's collected in your bag
Getting checkered for the evening
Ducking phone booths without doors
Waiting are the jockeys from the slipper school of rogues

Your face is just some wafer
You're a waif always in transit
Citing sallow gallows men
Do not accept the Lotto bubble promise for the paradise
Strip the fur off the frequent praying plan

And when you sell your birthright
Just like Esau for his lentils
You will satisfy the hunger
You will sacrifice the better life to come

Bonapartists out of their time
Approach the Danish swizzle stick of
Some stirring girls in heat
In the Atlantic states they wait to greet the watery warriors
And get rescued from the scourge

They of clean chin wonder
What's become of the Americans
Thickening to empire
Tough to chew
Carnival litter hunted by the wind that came to pass
These amusements will soon outdo

And when you sell your birthright
Just like Esau for his lentils
You will satisfy the hunger
You will sacrifice the better life to come

All of the conveniences the stevedores are handling
For a bob
For a quid
Let the pamphleteers return
And announce us out of gloom
And announce us out of gloom
And announce us out of gloom

And when you sell your birthright
Just like Esau for his lentils
You will satisfy the hunger
You will sacrifice the better life to come
