I put my ciggy out
& roll one with my tongue
Ah, don’t you fear me
‘Cos I’m strange & serpentine
But that don’t endear me
To the Coney Island mermaids tonite

I – I can’t give you nothing but my love
Smoke me like a human cigar [suck] ooooo
Love – I mean it from the top of my skull
To the very very tip of my stump

I crawled into your room
& slithered in your trunk
Ah, don’t you hear me
When I’m screaming in the night
Ah, Sarah believe me
I’m not called ‘The Pillow Man’ for monkeyshines
If you feel a chill in the pit of your soul
Allow me to throw you a bone

‘Cos – I can’t give you nothing but my love
Can’t give you nothing but love
Or I can’t give you nothing at all
No I can’t give you nothing at all
Nothing nothing nothing, no!
Ah I can’t give you nothing at all
No I can’t give you nothing

Behold the smoke entwined vap’rous midnight skies
I crawled this eldritch land – the sawdust & gloom
In this sorry caravan of losers & fools
Always dreaming of you – & only dreams of you oh oh

I – I can’t give you nothing but love
Play me like a human guitar
Love – like a poison in my nicotine veins
I love you babe
