Hello Jesus
Hello jesus what’s the lesson?
I’m in the bathroom
I’m confessin’
To a toilet half my age
Down the drain with all my secrets
Set them free into the ocean
Found by some
Sailboat driving business man

They were shaggin’ in the public gardens
The rented cops were watchin’ tv
They were swimming with ducks and geese
They were naked underneath
They were touchin’ cause they like to
Swimming in the night to
They are friends of mine

Come on in and come on back now

Stories end they seem to go by
Stories end before you know b’y
I am going back again
To the chorus the refrain
To the well loved and the lonely
The pretty and the homely
To the city by the sea

The result is a record that is ragged and beautiful. ... more
