Well I live in a little grass shack by a river
I sit on the banks and watch the water go by
My life is a drag and I really don't mean to nag
'cause the writing on the walls is nothing but lies
Lies

I grew up in an insane asylum in the suburbs
And I moved out into a nuthouse of my own
I love to complain 'cause it really helps to ease the pain
And I don't think that there's anything more to explain except

When you hug me I get scared
I'm allergic to the flowers in your hair
And I live in a little grass shack by a river
That flows to the ocean blue

I went to my job and they told me to get lost
I played my guitar and the audience left
My life is a bore but don't you dare call me a whore
I love you to think I'm romantic when my life is a mess, oh yes

When you hug me I get scared
I'm allergic to the flowers in your hair
And I live in a little grass shack by a river
That flows to the ocean blue

'cause I've got nothing better to do
Than sit and watch the water roll away
I've finally gone insane
Won't you come and help me with the pain
