"Howard Hughes"

[ from the album "20 Vodka Jellies" (1996) ]

Lyrics

Spending my days in old hotels
Where did the time go? Where did my mind go?
Spending my days in old hotels
Like Howard Hughes without the money

Screaming aloud in bungalows
Sitting alone in the lotus position
Screaming aloud in bungalows
Like Howard Hughes without the money

Why don't we dance around like trolls
Joined at the wrist like paper dolls
Speak of me kindly when I'm gone
Evil intention lingers on
Use human beings as you'd be used
Grow your hair long like Howard Hughes

One part of me went missing
One part of me went fishing
One part of me went missing
One part of me (one part of me)
One part of me (one part of me)

Screaming aloud in bungalows
Sitting alone in the lotus position
Screaming aloud in bungalows
Like Howard Hughes without the money

Why don't we dance around like trolls
Joined at the arms like paper dolls
You do the twist and I will scream
Under the ocean like a dream
There is a monster by the creek
Screaming until the windows break
Let's form a band and make it huge
Grow your hair long like Howard Hughes
