[intro]

...Man, you'd be amazed how much good food you can find,
i mean,
good food that people throw away.
You can...
You can get a good buzz from Listerine if you drink enough...
...The first time you say "can I spare some change?", you feel like a gutless whore.
But after a hundred times it feels like that's what you're for,
it feels like,
that's what you were meant to be
"That's me, that's me.
'scuse me, could you spare a dollar sir, I need uh, I need a bus ticket,
or... 'scuse me sir.
Mamn, I hope tomorrow is as beautiful as you, can you spare some change?"
Well it was not in my plan,
it was not in my plan
this,
this is sortof a,
of a spontaneous evolution
has put me here by this dumpster
with the hope on my shoulders
and a thousand- man I tell ya I could, uh, I could, uh, I could, uh, survive just about anything
just as long as I
as long as I, you know, I don't have to impress anyone with how I spell.
Yea. mmhmm.
I'm not much of a shaver anymore
this one big dreadlock in my head has become somewhat of a pillow for me, mmhmm.
Sometimes people give me money just to get me to leave them alone.
You can tell those people are coming
so you sing a song to 'em,
"Hey, you know this song?
Can I sing you a song for a dollar?
You know this song?
Can I sing you a song for a.."
and they come up with the cash,
and then they come up with the cash quickly,
just to 'get your stinky ass away from me'.
Yea...
I thrived.
Loving mother, loving father,
and my sweetheart and me, we were gonna ride into the sunset.
But who could've seen that train coming?
Hell no.
And so the sunset will be enjoyed by me alone and hopefully with a big fat buzz on.
Yea..
Yea...
I'm not gonna be a doctor
but I woulda been
I'm not gonna be a lawyer
but I coulda been
I'm not gonna be the envy of the world
but I shoulda been
Yea, that's what I shoulda been
Grey, oh...
Dancing Nancies
main lyrics
Could I have been
A parking lot attendant
Could I have been
A millionaire in Bel Air
Could I have been
Lost somewhere in Paris
Could I have been
Your little brother
Could I have been
Anyone other than me
Could I have been, oh
Anyone other than me
Could I have been
Anyone other than me
Could I have been
Anyone

He stands touch his hair his shoes untied
Tongue gaping stare
Could I have been a magnet for money?
Could I have been anyone other than me?
Twenty three I'm so tired of life
Such a shame to throw it all away
The images grow darker still
Could I have been anyone other than me?

Then I
Look up at the sky
My mouth is open wide, lick and taste
What's the use in worrying, what's the use in hurrying
Turn, turn we almost become dizzy

I am who I am who I am well who am I
Requesting some enlightenment
Could I have been anyone other than me?

And then I'll
Sing and dance I'll play for you tonight
The thrill of it all
Dark clouds may hang on me sometimes
But I'll work it out and then I

Falling out of a world of lies
Could I have been dancing nancy dancing nancy
Could I have been anyone other than me?
