Pavement – Platform Blues lyrics

One, two, three, four.

Cardiac kid, kinda like it, kinda like it, cardiac kid don't go.
Chronological on all your friends
First you'll cause accidents
Raise the roof
Make us tense
Follow through to the ends
And we'll rip the heart out from the defense.

The lion reaps his own reward
Serengeti nightmare for the echo tour
You're a nice guy and I hate you for that
Thanks to people like you I'm no longer that

Mandrake versus the snake,
I got it on the camera for posterity,
Of my stolen wild orchids got cut,
See those Sherpas sherpin (chirping?) from the autobus.

It's got the right to sit on that face,
Well it was put here for me because I am great,
I've got the right to sit on that face,
Everybody look at me and my wonderful place.

Patty, patty, patty you're so catty,
And it's not fair because I like to doody doddy do,
Catty, catty, catty you're so patty,
And it's unfair cause I like to doody doddy do with you,
And it's unfair cause I like to doody doddy doody da with you,
Di da di doody da with you.
