Ahhhhhhh, I have emotional scarsAhhhhhhh, I don’t understand what your sayingAhhhhhhh, it’s an accomplice of mine (drowning in the commerce of life)Feeeeling somethings going to blowAnd watch where you goI’m the drinking jim crowAhhhhhhh, did you know it a traditional gameAhhhhhhh, and we market it as a (and got out every morning, I feel like)Nasty little nationDrinking from the fire in the wellExtracting all the venom from the snakeBe careful you knowI’m the drinking jim crowMay the best things be stolen (and the blessings bestowed)And the costumes be clothes (we froze)And the night an oasis (the master of races)And the haunted faces (makes fun pointed faces)And the killing of timeI’m the drinking jim crowBetter look where you goBetter look where you go
