lyrics

i know you would like to go back to school
but it can wait another year
because babie ruth
you’re getting long in the tooth
and now you’re missus belvedere
oh your daddy said trust your instincts
as he’s licking champagne off the floor
when did your grass get so green
your paper won’t guarantee more
in beirut
you got a view from the roof
but you only see the embassy
listen if i were you
i’d quit sniffing the glue
he’s a walking hysterectomy
oh we used to jam for hours in your basement
and now we rent studio time.
oh you’re so high in your tree babe
still you keep on pining for more

i know you would like to go back to school
take it from your lips to the lords ears
but listen babie ruth, you’re getting long in the tooth
and you can’t afford those new veneers
