butter churn

from by "Calvin, don't jump!"



trombones at the end...


she goes skipping and dancing all over the house
there goes a mouse will she kill it?
hell no, her heart is too big

she starts laughing and singing with a jovial heir
in her underwear
will she tempt me?
you'd better believe it
i may come home angry and drunk all the time
in the summertime, but she doesn't mind
she just pours out the wine.

we will never complain over terrible news
just kick off our shoes, now
do we get the blues?
not in this lifetime my friend.

so settle me down in a comfortable seat
with a girl near my feet
will i lift her?
there's no other reason to live

let the kids learn
how the wheels turn
with a butter churn
while the house burns
make an ash urn.
