Odysseus leans and swells
But I don't budge because I know his tells
And everything that he buys, he sells, for more

Old Sisyphus wanders past
Hoping this night might be his last
Walking by like his heart's in a cast that tore

An Apparition that came to pass
Took a shortcut through the glass
To the collection plate just as mass gave out

Penelope has a wandering eye
I threw it a wink as it wandered by
It wandered home and forgot how to cry, boo hoo

Oh, but I don't want to make a mistake
I don't want to make a mistake
Half a million dollars in my pocket by the time I wake

Mary Margaret asks her brother why
Why haven't they found the guy
Brother wasn't listening, he was cleaning his squirt gun

The Volunteer brought his frying pan
He thought he'd use it, if things got out of hand
One last chance to prove he's a man, and a son

But I don't want to make a mistake
I don't want to make a mistake
Half a million dollars in my pocket by the time I wake

I heard the sheriff whimper and sneezed
As he pleaded with his deputies
"Somebody give me my stomach back please, I'm through!"

And that one half behind the curtain
He's only backlit, so I can't be certain
But it looks like his little sister he's squirtin', shoot shoot

But I don't want to make a mistake
I don't want to make a mistake
Half a million dollars in my pocket by the time I wake

You see, it's me they're looking for
But when I ran, I had them all on the floor
No one got up until I was well out the door, and gone

But tomorrow, I will be on a plane
In my wallet, a brand new name
I'll be gone just as quiet as I came, and lost

Oh, but I don't want to make a mistake
I don't want to make a mistake
Half a million dollars in my pocket by the time I wake

I don't want to make a mistake
I don't want to make a mistake
Half a million dollars in my pocket by the time I wake
