Captain Beefheart – Grow Fins lyrics

Now here ya come, baby
With yer tail draggin' the gravy
Y' know yer P's 'n' Q's
What ya don't know, baby
Is you givin' me the blues

Ya got juice on your chin
Eggs on the drain-board
Pie on the wall
Dirt on the rug

I come home late
'n I stumbled 'n swore
Ya won't even give me a hug
Ya had my things all laid out by the door

I'm leavin'
I'm gonna take up with, ah, mermaid
'n' leave you land lubbin' women alone
'n' leave you land-lubbin' women alone

Ya said ya had it together once
Now yer head's around the bend
I'm tellin' ya, woman
Ya better get it back together again

I'm gonna grow fins
'n' go back in the water again
If ya don't leave me alone

I'm gonna take up with, ah, mermaid
'n' leave you land-lubbin' women alone
'n' leave you land-lubbin' women alone

Now here ya come, baby
With yer tail draggin' the gravy
Ya know yer P's 'n Q's
What ya don't know, woman
Is yer givin' me the blues
