lirik lagu 4th time around – robyn hitchcock


when she said,
“don’t waste your words, they’re just lies,”
i cried she was deaf
and she worked on my face until breaking my eyes
then said, “what else you got left?”
it was then that i got up to leave
but she said, “don’t forget
everybody must give something back
for something they get.”

i stood there and hummed
i tapped on her drum and asked her how come
and she b-ttoned her boot
and straightened her suit
then she said, “don’t get cute.”
so i forced my hands in my pockets
and felt with my thumbs
and gallantly handed her
my very last piece of gum

she threw me outside
i stood in the dirt where ev’ryone walked
and after finding i’d
forgotten my shirt
i went back and knocked.
i waited in the hallway, she went to get it
and i tried to make sense
out of that picture of you in your wheelchair
that leaned up against…

her jamaican rum
and when she did come, i asked her for some
she said, “no, dear.”
i said, “your words aren’t clear
you’d better spit out your gum.”
she screamed till her face got so red
then she fell on the floor
and i covered her up and then
thought i’d go look through her drawer

and, when i was through
i filled up my shoe
and brought it to you
and you, you took me in
you loved me then
you didn’t waste time
and i, i never took much
i never asked for your crutch
now don’t ask for mine
