Devendra Banhart – Michigan State lyrics

My friend has my favorite teeth, they bend backwards when she breathes
And it whistles
Sweetness is all sweetness was
Bees are black eyed birds that buzz
My love has my favorite ears, they lean forward when she hears
Well evil is all evil was
Bees are blue eyed knees that buzz

And I said, oh, Michigan, Michigan state
How I'd love to live in you
I've never been to Michigan state, still I want to live in you

Oh you can't speak without your tongue
Don't try to drown without your lungs
Well my snail has my favorite slow, shell helps the snail still the skin lays
And if my snail has my favorite slow, then my cold has my favorite snow
But if my snail's cold and comes to a halt, then my sea has my favorite salt
The salt keeps the sea from feeling sweet, and my toes have my favorite feet
And if I sweat salt and the Earth sweats heat
Oh Michigan, Michigan state
How I'd loved to live in you
I've never been to Michigan state, still I'd love to live in you
Michigan st-st-st-st-ate
