Track Name: The Possums in My Head
Look at that handsome mama, all about her Mr. Marmalade -
Look at that pretty daddy, all about his Miss Oleomargarine -

Find someone to undo -
The Fool in you -
Like some actor outta King Lear -
But you ain't never read Shakespeare -
Underneath the gilded butterflies -
We can be just like God's spies -
So sweet and twenty-three -
Why don't you come kiss me -
Youth's a stuff that won't last -

I hear the possums playing dead -
All day in my head -
As the bluebird carves a sill in my rib -
My heart peers out as he peers in -

Time to wake up before you get to sleep -
The gaslight's don't light themselves -
And you know that I'm top shelf -
You know that old flames make bad matches -

Find someone to undo -
The Fool in you -
Like some actor outta King Lear -
But you ain't never read Shakespeare -
Underneath the gilded butterflies -
We can be just like God's spies -
So sweet and thirty-three -
Why don't you come kiss me -
Youth's a stuff that won't last -

You know that old flames make bad matches -
You're a tobacco leaf growing in the cabbage patches -
Youth's a stuff that won't last

So sweet and forty-three -
Why don't you come kiss me -
Youth's a stuff that won't last -
