Up on Mount Olympus, living on a pile of trash
With all the lunatics; how they worship me
What are you going to do with the back of that ticket?
That's my number but, I'll call you

There's nothing less I'd rather do

You've been sniffing up that mercury
From a broken thermometer
Like a cloud gatherer, just like Zeus

Out at the car show
Cheetah's or Jumbo's
Like seeing a cold sore in a kissing booth

There's nothing less I'd rather do
Nothing less I'd rather do
Nothing less I'd rather
Nothing less I'd rather
Nothing less I'd rather do

And I, I live with the shame
But you live with the same, same

Living on Milk Duds and therapeutic mud
Ninety days at promises with no booze
Outside of Silver Lake, I am the biggest fake
Like the Mona Lisa at the Louvre

There's nothing less I'd rather do
Nothing less I'd rather do
Nothing less I'd rather
Nothing less I'd rather
Nothing less I'd rather do

And I, I live with the flames
But you, you're taking the blame, blame

There's nothing less I'd rather do

    General CommentThis whole album is dark disguised as sunny, cheery music. This song especially. This is the first Jenny and Johnny song according to Jenny's facebook page. I remember seeing her play this song while she toured Acid Tongue.

    General Commentanyone else notice a lot of references to mythology in this album? i wonder if that's jenny or John's influence... I like how you can see a pattern with their music like what they are interested in at the time shapes their album, so cool. This and in "while men were sleeping" there is a reference to Sirius, and a few other ones...

    General Comment"cheetahs or jumbo's" instead of "she does word jumbles."

    it's a reference to two dive bar strip clubs in los angeles.
