"Jewels & Bullets" as written by Tim Adrian Rogers, Andy Kent and Russell Hopkinson....
===============================
You Am I - Jewels And Bullets
===============================
Every word they sling you hits like your folks have never been kind
And the jewels on your apron could use some calomine
Ugly girls and pit faced boys all hunch and join in the line
Got the shoe that you lived in
And the towel that you dried in
There's a drink you can drown in
Choose a blanket to die in
Spill a drink on his front and salsa on the plans for a mall and high rise
'Cause there's only so much of string that patron can pull and unwind
Got the shoe that you lived in
And the towel that you dried in
There's a drink you can drown in
Choose a blanket to die in
Check out the towel you can die in

    General Commentthis is one of my fave you am i songs, just always loved that guitar riff at the end..
    because of this i never gave much thought to the meaning, though the quasi-chorus seemed to indicate being destitute, but now i read the entire lyrics, i realise i have to give it some further thought....

    General Commenta user from you am i's forum enlightened me with this quote of tim's:

    "It's said that when Anastasia Romanov was 'executed' at Yekaterinburg, that Jewels woven into her gown deflected the bullets meant to kill her. A coffee shop in Castle Hill, NSW is a long way from Yekaterinburg, but some folks can let no asshole's comments get to them"
