"Trumpet Clip" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
Good substitute for inspiration
Prostitutes and perspiration
Look don`t touch
I think you ought to show me
Exactly what don`t you want to be
Here that much

Fast jump
Everybody shouting
Come together
Fast jump
Everybody punch up the air
Fast jump
Everybody bummer
Here comes a sucker
Fast jump
When you gonna blow
Up a square

New wave kiss in Susie`s eyes
Pass me one of them lover`s smiles
Look don`t (hump?)
I pin the tail on Demi Moore
Ring around the donkey core
You got skunked

Fast jump
Everybody clamor
Come together
Fast jump
Everybody going
Don`t you howl
Fast jump
You and you and your momma
Comes a sucker
I swear to god I hear something about the Unabomber>
Fast jump
When you gonna blow
Up I know

Everyone`s a pit of love
Except I can`t stop thinking about her underwear
I thought I had a damn good reason
[One loss it don`t make a season
For the Bears]

Fast jump
Everybody clamor
Come together
Fast jump
Everybody go
(no, no, no?)
Fast jump
You and me mama
Come forever
Fast jump
When you gonna blow
Up the block

I give the world the slip, can you dig my trumpet clip?
And I`m high

(my description?)
You`re my papillion addiction (papillion is French for butterfly)
Oh yeah yeah
Let`s pin the tail on Demi Moore
And ring around the donkey score
Yeah yeah yeah
Fast jump
Fast jump
Just like me to (care and all?)
Yeah yeah yeah

    My InterpretationLyrically, I don't think this song means much of anything. I believe Westerberg has commented on several occasions that he keeps a notebook and frequently fills it with lyric ideas and fragments, then pulls these out to work on them when he has song ideas. But this seems even less developed than many of his other lyrics - listening to the song, it seems he was just making up words on the spot that sounded OK and could rhyme reasonably well. The only possible exception to my ears is in the chorus, where he "give[s] the world the slip," a theme consistent with his tendency to be low-profile and somewhat introverted.
