There's a guy on the pavement chucking up his cookies
I've got a friend that saw God, she was a Japanese girl in a rubber catsuit
It's two below, I hope this hangover lifts soon
That kid cried like a sissy all 'cause I popped his balloon
I'm in love with a hat-check girl, I've got her photo on my mouse mat
I love the smoke in her voice, her big hoop earrings and her birth mark
She text messaged me while I was queuing at the hot dog stand
She said, "Just get lost, 'cause me and you is over"

Said I was leaving for good, gonna get me a love detox
Then I danced like a hula hula honey all around the kitchen
I gave his mother's wedding ring to the guy he buys his gear from
His love was just a noose and now I'm aching for a shakedown
I withdrew all my money at the nearest cash point
I saw birds fly low in circles and rain marks in the dust
And I got hit on by this cutie in clean chinos
With a big house in the hills and big joy in his jeans

All the guys at the pool hall say I should forget her
That there's this girl who likes me
Looks like the singer in Destiny's Child
But all night I was dreaming of my hat-check girl
'Til the pigeons woke me up in the gutter come first light

I got in real late, I blagged a lift with a joyrider
When I lay down to sleep, the sun was already in the trees
And I didn't dream a thing and I woke around half past five
Right in time for a Judy Garland film on TV

Time just drags, it feels like my whole life is in a tailspin

I quit my job, may join a friend in Amsterdam for a while

I stay up most nights, watching the cranes against a crescent moon

She's got this band, said I could join if I liked
