No, I can’t say I have ever really qualified As an innocent man, by any stretch of the imagination And yes, I’ve been known To make my bed upon the floor But I don’t think your very vivid descriptions Are a particularly accurate characterization Of just how old I am Or just how immature No, this don’t seem to work for me, honey And I’m howling like a mad man from the roof But I got me a different kind of alchemy, baby Living on tequila and cheesy poofs Well I can’t seem to find my invitation But I’m famous, don’t you recognize my face I thought I’d built a nasty reputation But it seems that I have come to the wrong place Well life may be understood backwards but it Must be lived forwards and it ain’t but a high parody To assume it all amounts To anything other than luck And while we’ll all certainly be subject to the Inevitably condescension of a cruel and savage posterity I won’t be around So I don’t give a fuck No, this don’t seem to work for me, honey And I’m howling like a mad man from the roof But I got me a different kind of alchemy, baby Living on tequila and cheesy poofs Well I can’t seem to find my invitation But I’m famous, don’t you recognize my face I thought I’d built a nasty reputation But it seems that I have come to the wrong place

I got them highball skyscraper blues I got them highball skyscraper blues I got them highball skyscraper Burning castles made of paper Staring down on Second Avenue I got them rooftop suicide views I got them rooftop suicide views I got them rooftop suicide Looking down but who am I To make a mess of Second Avenue I got that thrift store sunglasses cool I got that thrift store sunglasses cool I got that thrift store sunglasses Camouflaged amongst the masses Walking down on Second Avenue Aright! Alright! Alright, you got me staring at you You just caught me on the weekend With my water cooler leaking Hanging out on Second Avenue Aright! Alright! Alright, you got me staring at you You just caught me on the weekend With my water cooler leaking Hanging out on Second Avenue
