"Needle In The Hay" as written by and Steven P. Smith....
On his arm is that charm around her neck
Strung out again call in some friends
Trying to cash a check cause
I've been dumb that's what you've come to expect

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

She's wearing your clothes
Head down to toe and the auction of you
You said you know what he did to idiot kid
Who don't have a clue
Sometimes they just caught in the eye
Am pulling them through

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Now on the bus nearly touching this dirty retreat
Falling out six inch pallet
There's sweat in my teeth
I'm gonna walk walk walk four more blocks
Cause the one in my brain
Chow downstairs see the man
He's gonna make it all look gay
I can't be myself I can't be myself
And I don't want to talk taking a cure
So I can be quiet wherever I want
So leave me alone you oughta be proud
That I'm getting these marks

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

    Lyric Correctionthose lyrics are wrong

    your hand on his arm
    haystack charm around your neck
    strung out and thin
    callin some friend tryin to cash some check
    he's acting dumb
    that's what you've come to expect
    needle in the hay, needle in the hay, needle in the hay, needle i the hay

    he's wearing your clothes
    head down to toes a reaction to you
    you say you know what he did, but you idiot kid
    you don't have a clue
    sometimes they just get caught in the eye, you're pullin him thru
    needle in the hay, needle in the hay, needle in the hay, needle in the hay

    now on the bus
    nearly touching this dirty retreat
    fallin out, 6th and powell, a dead sweat i my teeth
    gonna walk walk walk, 4 more blocks plus the one in my brain
    down downstairs, to the man he's gonna make it all ok
    i can't be myself, i can't be myself, and i don't wanna talk
    i'm taking the cure so i can be quiet wherever i want
    so leave me alone you aught to be proud that i'm getting good marks

    General Commentwow those lyrics are completely off.
    i agree aisha i thought, how dare someone try to cover an Elliott Smith song, but's it's actually not bad.
