THE OTTER WITH THE LOVELY LEFT FOOT

THE OTTER WITH THE LOVELY LEFT FOOT

Well I’m not sick and I’m not insane
Though my life’s not insured and I don’t know my name
It used to be Pete, then I changed it to Sam
I love roast beef but I hate boiled ham
My fathers in jail, my mothers in love
And I see faces in the sky up above
But don’t put me down, I do alright
Though I scream at the sky every other night

I’m a shy intellectual
Slightly unsymmetrical
A bit temperamental
But not the least detrimental
I’ve got a misshapen nose
From the day I came to blows
And goodness only knows why I’m tearing off my clothes

I get my kicks in a thousand strange ways
Fourteen asses in fourteen days
I drink tequila from a size D cup
Which comes in handy when I throw up
I used to worry about waking up dead
I used to worry about the price of bread
But then I found out the secret of life
When I cut out my heart with a switchblade knife

I’ve got a shiny purple zoot suit
And a shiny yellow gum boot
Which fits my lovely left foot
And hides away the black suit
I’m a coal miners daughter
And a friendly pet otter
And though I once caught her
She breeds
Dead dockers
