Lucky Me Again (2006/11/05)
Alternate Title/Lyrics For: King Rat
Alt. Lyrics:

Lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again
Looks like I'm gonna have to sell all of my gold teeth again, but I
Hardly, hardly, hardly, hardly, hardly, hardly, hardly even needed them
Well I don't chew my food [?]

Every little [?]
I don't want to see my family, coz then I will have to bury them
Well every other time you get another really boring old seat again
Well I don't need another reason just be alive or just to be very well

Oh lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again
I don't need another reason not to hit my head again [?]
[?]
I don't need another reason if I could [?] for myself

Lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again
Well I went through your ashes and found your wisdom teeth in there
[?]

Well, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again
I got all your car and rolled with [?] again
Well, hardly, hardly, hardly, hardly, hardly [?] it was just me in there
I could bare my hips [?]

Well everyone who said I [?]
Well lucky, lucky, lucky me again
Well every other time you get another [?]

[?]
I could miss the car, but I missed miss again
[?]
Every other man was then talking about the future in the past tense

I was [?] did not need again
Well we gathered up my [?] and we all wanted [?]
Well lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again
Yeah look, I can't use cling wrap as my fence again

Lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again
It hardly seemed like I should ever even get to use my feet again

Normal Lyrics:

[I love this shit]

Well!

Well!

Well!

Well

We spun like birds on fire right
Down towards the residence and I
I took all the time desired
Even crooks have to pay the rent

We swam like rats on fire right
Right down the reservoir
We took all that we could carry
But we tried to carry more

You know, you know,
You know it all went wrong
You know, you know,
You know it was all wrong

We choked on straight tap water
Well, gonna have to try the real thing
I took your [?] by the car car
And it knew not to swing

Anytime I tried an honest job
Well the till had a hole in ha-ha
We laughed about paying rent
Cuz the county jails, they're free

You know, you know,
You know it was all wrong
You know, you know,
You know it was all wrong

Deep water, deep water
Senseless denial
I went down like a rag doll
Heavy with child

Well deep water, deep water
Senseless denial
I went down like a rag doll
Heavy with child

Well, oh lucky lucky lucky lucky me again
I said it looks like it's time to use my feet again
Well, I just spent my last $100
Got to pay my bail again

I don't care

I just don't care

Deep water, deep water
Senseless denial
I went down like a rag doll
[?]

Deep water, deep water
Senseless denial
I went down like a rag doll
[?]

Well,
King Rat has me on his list again
I can never be on the fence again
Well, I found out it's all loud
Open like an organ and it
Talk, talk, talk, talk, talk again
Well [?] when I cheated them
But I could [?]
Lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky,
Lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again

Deep water, deep water
Senseless denial
I got fed like a fish
Full of open smiles

Well deep water, deep water
Oh senseless denial
I got fed like a fish
Full of cardboard smiles

Well!
Well!

What do you have to say for yourself?
I said well well!
Well!
I said well, well, well, well, well!

Lucky lucky lucky lucky me again
I hardly knew I should use my feet again
What do you have to say for yourself?
What do you have to say for yourself?
