Look-look-looking in the pink
While living in the red
Pissing in the sink-sink-sink
Too drunk to find the head
Beg-beg-begging for the black
Make me rich or make me dead


I want a little pick me up
So I won't stumble down tonight
Considering staying alive
Hitchhiking on the Disco Drive


Sometimes jobs turn to vacations
but always I must earn
Waiting for standing ovations
For filing my tax returns
Searching for zippers
but finding only seams
The seamstress for strippers
Must suspects my dirty peeking schemes*


I want a little pick me up
So I wont stumble down tonight
Considering staying alive
Wish I could only Disco Drive


A man can only do his best
I’m skipping steps and I’m taking breaths
Hold your horses, cool your jets
You can’t make me be finished yet


Don’t trust the poets, they want to get paid
They’re playing their trade to the art of getting laid
Don’t trust the prophets, their visions are fudged
They’re buying our houses while selling us floods


The hours will get you
The owls will get you
When I was a swear word
The hours we shot-gunned
The hours will get you
The hours will get you
The owls will get you
The hours will get you

    General CommentAwesome song. Les Savy Fav write really excellent lyrics to go with their great guitars and shouting, and that makes them a rare find. Songs that rock, and actually mean something!

    General Commentit's "Too drunk to find the head", Naval slang for toilet. That's why he's pissing in the sink.

    Also, "dirty, peeking schemes", and "hitchhiking on the disco drive".

    Also the poets want to get paid, the second line is laid. Someone as wonderful a wordsmith as Tim Harrington wouldn't make a song so ugly with repetition like that.

    General CommentI just took a look at the lyrics on the French Kiss page. Turns out he alternates between "The Hours" and "The Owls".

    "Don't trust the prophets their visions are fudged.
    They're buying our houses while selling us floods.
    The hours will get you, the owls will get you
    When I was a swear word the hours we shotgunned."

    From there it sounds like he says "Hours" twice and then "Owls" twice, from what I can here.

    I'm glad I turned out correct about the other things.
