Lyrics:
Big pain burning now, giving me a cow
What you seem to be saying is you're patiently waiting like an ashtray for the butt
Well, I'm putting it down, but you're not picking it up
Yeah, putting it down, but you treat me like a clown and I don't want to be funny

Fat chance, glued to the wall like a centerfold of an old cannonball
Will you put me inside the tv tonight 'cause you're treatin' me like a rerun?
Well, I'm puttin' it down, but you're not pickin' it up
Well, I'm puttin' it down, but you treat me like a clown and I don't want to be funny, no no no

So what? I lost my job at the Hut, my ass got cut
But I'll be better at kissin' when my teeth are all missin'
And the silverware's burnt and I'm eatin' with my fingers
Well, I'm putting it down, but you're not picking it up
Well, I'm putting it down, but you treat me like a clown and I don't want to be funny, yeah yeah yeah
