The shower is too small for fucking
The shower is too small to get laid
I wish it were bigger, or that we were thinner
But then we'd get sucked down the drain

The table is too tall for fucking
Too high off the ground to get laid
I'd climb to the top of it, but fearing the drop of it deflates the will
What a shame

We could just play Monopoly
I could just pick your brain
We could just play some old school video games
Watch the news or the rain

There's a hill down the street ripe for climbing
Adventures to be sought and claimed
But you complain of weather, and lie on the featherbed
Legs spread, eyes red, lips aflame

Nothing can tame the monster
Nothing will satiate
If I were to lay here, she would just say
Dear let's do it again and again

Well this bed is too feathered for fucking
I must object and complain
I don't approve of plucking the feathers from ducklings
Or swan-lings or goslings, or any leaf rustling beast
On its way to the grave

So baby I'll be on my way now
Yes, I know it is strange
But you'll be alright with yourself, a night-light
And your imaginary, unwary, less hairy friend
Bill, Chuck, Dick, George or James
