Elliott Smith – Punch And Judy lyrics

A wallflower Punch talks to Judy
In a crowded corner where anybody can listen in
They don't read page to page, or speak easy
Now they're gonna go say the words
In the wrong order again
They walk in a circle
Through all the sidewalk scenes they used to be a part of one time
Now everybody just stares and whispers
Driving around, up and down Division Street
I used to like it here
It just burns me out to remember

Can't you ever treat anyone nice?
Think I'm gonna make the same mistake twice?

They draw the curtain
Wait for a call
Pretty lucky if they get any kind of response at all

Can't you ever treat anyone nice?
Think I'm gonna make the same mistake twice?
Gonna make the same mistake twice
