Lyrics:
Put those sunglasses on your hips
Mayonnaise on your lips
Pass me a bag of potato chips
When I wanna put my money on the monkey
Give it to me donít give it to me
Give it to me donít give it to me
Your idea maybe Iíll see ya
Maybe I will
Maybe I wonít

Give me a cold sore when youíre young
Get old fast when you sag in the sun
Put a coffin lid on everyone
So you can be depressed
Give it to me donít give it to me
Sive it to me donít give it to me
Your idea maybe Iíll see ya
Maybe I will
Maybe I wonít
Your love
your kindness
Your body on the mattress

Sheís got braids and broken arms
Top ramen cooking in a burning barn
Talking at me like car alarms
When all the cars got stolen
Give it to me
Donít give it to me
Give it to me
Donít give it to me
Your idea
Maybe Iíll see ya
Maybe I will
Maybe I wonít
 
The Song:

Beck.com put up the lyrics to "Mattress" a number of years before One Foot Deluxe was released. They transcribed a full-band electric version that was not used on One Foot Deluxe, however. It did not use the "psycho/sinner" ending.

It remains unreleased...
