Residents – The Sour Song lyrics

Relatives on Easy Street
Smoke cigars right after they eat
They drive Cadillacs with leather seats
And everyone talks about
"You know they gave our baby girl a sterling silver cup,
It was awful sweet, just a little bit scratched up
Someone said their brand new sofa came from overseas
And they got a coffe table from somewhere back east"
"Well I heard they got a poodle dog, supposed to be from
They sent their little girl away so she can learn to
"They say he has a drinking problem, but nobody knows
If her hair is really red, but her face isn't so"
Like the smell of fresh-cut hay
On a sweltering Summer's day
Sugar melts and goes away
Sugar melts and goes away
But vinegar lasts forever
