lyrics

Beg and Borrow


I eat chicken and I boil the bones
To pay off my student loans
I don;t talk on mobile phones
I got all my original chromosomes

Well insured I’ll never be
At least not here in the home of the free
House catches fire go live in a tree
I’m a little, little fish in a great big sea

The poppies will put you to sleep
Will you find your way back out?
O, don’t breath too deep
And keep yr money near yr mouth

I’m gonna borrow, I’m gonna beg
I’m gonna beg and borrow
I’m gonna borrow, I’m gonna beg
I’ll pay you back tomorrow

I’d rather get my food from the farmers hand
Than the food scientist at the fast food stand
No bag, no box no rubber band
No I don’t need no middle man

I see my eye lids are droopin’
But they’re not quite shut
There’s a funny feelin’ down in my gut
Something’s wrong but I don’t know what
My hands are bloody but I’m not cut

The poppies will put you to sleep
Will you find your way back out?
O, don’t breath too deep
And keep yr money near yr mouth

I’m gonna borrow, I’m gonna beg
I’m gonna beg and borrow
I’m gonna borrow, I’m gonna beg
I’ll pay you back tomorrow
