Jones Street Magazines

 

In gamely odds I quiver quick

Inner city tracin' letters

Fancy feathers on delicate cheap metals

I use to by 'em for flyin' soft against her bonnet

 

            On the road up to Jones Street magazines

 

Anyhow my wrists they started stickin'

Mostly shufflin' outta sight

Gladly helpless mumblin' polished beggin'

I use to call her down with balled up fists inside

 

            On the road up to Jones Street magazines

 

Now it's bottled up food and bottled up freedom

Sweet tastin' patience medicine

Clingin' faster to a single liftin' finger

Divorcin' anger and aimless wonder goin'

 

            On the road back from Jones Street magazines

 

In gamely odds I quiver quick

Inner city tracin' letter

Fancy feathers on delicate cheap metals

I use to buy 'em for flyin' soft against her bonnet

 

On the road up to Jones Street magazines

On the road up to Jones Street magazines
