lyrics

Dress me up as if I'm going for good
and drop the customary call to love.
Unusual the way you say your words
so tell us where you're from so I can store everything I observe.

I hate watching the local news
and the TV show on the TV in here is inappropriate for
the little Black girl at the laundromat
who doesn't get the shitty racial jokes
but still looks around and laughs.

Preserve the fighter underneath the judge
recall embarrassing declarations.
Unleash the cola buried in the beer
carbonation for the kid in me and for the grownup, elimination of fear.

I hate watching the local news
and the TV show on the TV in here is inappropriate for
the little Black girl at the laundromat
who doesn't get the shitty racial jokes
but still looks around and laughs.

I'm sick of always being invited to
believe the Eiffel Tower was built only for me.
Envelope assignment getting me pumped for spring
English teachers looking as hot as they can be.

I can't fucking believe they actually call this garbage news
and the TV show on the TV in here is fucking inappropriate for
the little girl sitting next to me here at the local laundromat
who doesn't get the shitty insensitive jokes
but still laughs.
