Well the doctor keeps me waiting
The blood in my brain
The pain in my chest
Oh Oh Oh
Only happens when it's rainin
The smoke in my lung
The beer in my gut
Oh Oh Oh

Feelin like a motherfuck
The only way is down from here
Oh Oh Oh
Feelin like a motherfuck
The only way is down from here
Oh Oh Oh

It's a nightmare in the alley
The undertaker's there
With his bowler hat
Oh Oh Oh
And his coffin eyes are empty
The ex-wife she's there too
Grinnin like a Cheshire cat
Oh Oh Oh

And I'm feelin like a motherfuck
The only way is down from here
Oh Oh Oh
Feelin like a motherfuck
The only way is down from here
Oh Oh Oh

I'm tryin to buy a drink
But the barmaid's cross-eyed
Why'd they let her work here
Hell I just don't know
I find it hard to think
Since my kangaroo died
Why'd she have to leave me
Hell I just don't know
I don't know

Well the priest is at the pulpit
Tellin me I'm wrong
Tellin me I'm sickening
Oh Oh Oh
To believe him is to forfeit
Everything I am
And everything I'll never be
Oh Oh

So I'm feelin like a motherfuck
The only way is down from here
Oh Oh Oh
Feelin like a motherfuck
The only way is down from here
Oh Oh Oh

I'm tryin to buy a drink
But the barmaid's cross-eyed
Why'd they let her work here
Hell I just don't know
I find it hard to think
Since my kangaroo died
Why'd she have to leave me
Hell I just don't know
I don't know

Always were the waters
Deep inside your heart
Always wanted to return
To your body
But I'm not sure I can

    General CommentI love this song. This and Then The Clouds Will Open Up For Me.
    Is the only version of this song a poor quality version, with a fussiness about it?
    Oh oh oh

    General Commentthis song is such a hidden gem. couldn't tell you what the hell it is supposed to mean, possibly Brian couldn't either? It seems very tongue in cheek random. Amazing nontheless.

    General Commenti love this song- the part about the kangaroo made me smile (...not too sure why...), i agree with the comment above me; tounge in cheek is the best way to describe it.
    I really think the verse about listening to the priest in the pulpit stands out the most though; those few lines are by far some of my favourite lyrcis of all time...and the poor quality only adds to it dont u think? Makes it even sweeter i guess.

    General Commentit's one of their drunkest, meaningless songs, but still, one of the most honest :)
    the priest line is amazing, and it all makes me think of bob dylan and fiive years, by bowie.
