Cigarettes & Chocolate Milk

Rufus Wainwright 

“Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk”

cigarettes and chocolate milk
these are just a couple of my cravings everything it seems i like’s a little bit stronger a little bit thicker
a little bit harmful for me

if i should buy jellybeans
have to eat them all in just one sitting everything it seems i like’s a little bit sweeter a little bit fatter
a little bit harmful for me

and then there’s those other things which for several reasons we won’t mention everything about them is a little bit stranger a little bit harder
a little bit deadly

it isn’t very smart
tends to make one part so broken-hearted

sitting here remembering me
always been a shoe made for the city
go ahead, accuse me of just singing about places with scrappy boys faces
have general run of the town
playing with prodigal songs
takes a lot of sentimental valiums
can’t expect the world to be your raggedy andy while running on empty
you little old doll with a frown

you got to keep in the game maintaining mystique while facing forward i suggest a reading of ‘a lesson in tightropes’ or ‘surfing your high hopes’ or ‘adios kansas’

it isn’t very smart
tends to make one part so broken-hearted

still there’s not a show on my back holes or a friendly intervention
i’m just a little bit heiress, a little bit irish a little bit tower of pisa whenever i see you so please be kind if i’m a mess
