about

Dom:
In a way I knew the Green Lantern was a Caribbean man. Every singer is entitled a dinner in honor of a song that could have been yesterday's lunch napkins. I'm not spoiled. Sometime in this little nether-relapse, you are back from a lilting mural soaking. Everybody's watching the Commish, taking it out on their expensive new bank check stack.

Writing letters to the Department of Radon, I ran into Hump. That motherfucker had a pocketful of Oreos to take to the Chevron Ravine. Gimlet-eyed, and very overwashed, I knew my teller.

lyrics

Piece of butterfly shrimp on my mind
Selling mad bonds
Will mature in time

Working like a duck's ass
Here at the bank
Overweight teller
With the dry straw hands
Ducking the cameras
And licking my pen
Inking my stamp pad
And wondering when

Piece of butterfly shrimp on my mind
Selling mad bonds
Will mature in time

I'm here to count money
Not to make you laugh
Deposit slip destroyer
With the Cititramp wrath
I'm hung over on Thursdays
So have your shit filled
And watch me while
I cobble together some bills

Piece of butterfly shrimp on my mind
Selling mad bonds
Will mature in time

I can break Kesha Roberts' pencils
Swipe the moisture sponge from Tommy the Gentile
Play with my big black Indian penis
Count the rich minds working for peanuts

Piece of butterfly shrimp on my mind
Selling mad bonds
Will mature in time

Working like a duck's ass
Here at the bank
Overweight teller
With the dry straw hands
Ducking the cameras
And licking my pen
Inking my stamp pad
And wondering when

Piece of butterfly shrimp on my mind
Selling mad bonds
Will mature in time.
