lyrics

I make a frown. I always wear it upside down, ‘cause life is carnage. I once was lost but now I’m floundered and running late for my funerary date. Burn me later. Could you smile while you do it? (I don’t care anymore. Swear I don’t care anymore.)

I was born with a Lucky 88 on my door. Put down your last claim to fame for me, boy. (Keep me starving or get something better started.) Try and work in this town without a silver spoon and foot in your mouth. You see that Lucky 88 on my door? (Keep me starving or get something stutter-started.)

One more time with reeling. You siphoned out the feeling. Can’t you act responsibly? You’re the sick pup who created me. Burn out and fade. I’ll convalesce you right into the grave, though I don’t care anymore. (Swear I don’t care anymore.)

I was born with a Lucky 88 on my door. Put down your last claim to fame for me, boy. Yes, I was born in the cold, clotted heart of a storm. You see that Lucky 88 on my door? (Keep me starving or get something better started.)

I was born with the Lucky 88 on my door. The Lucky 88. Do da do do.
