Cigarettes and chocolate milk
These are just a couple of my cravings
Everything it seems i like's a little bit stronger
A little bit thicker
A little bit harmful for me

If i should buy jellybeans
Have to eat them all in just one sitting
Everything it seems i like's a little bit sweeter
A little bit fatter
A little bit harmful for me

And then there's those other things
Which for several reasons we won't mention
Everything about them is a little bit stranger
A little bit harder
A little bit deadly

It isn't very smart
Tends to make one part so broken-hearted

Sitting here remembering me
Always been a shoe made for the city
Go ahead, accuse me of just singing about places
With scrappy boys faces
Have general run of the town
Playing with prodigal songs
Takes a lot of sentimental valiums
Can't expect the world to be your raggedy andy
While running on empty
You little old doll with a frown

You got to keep in the game
Maintaining mystique while facing forward
I suggest a reading of 'a lesson in tightropes'
Or 'surfing your high hopes' or 'adios kansas'

It isn't very smart
Tends to make one part so broken-hearted

Still there's not a show on my back
Holes or a friendly intervention
I'm just a little bit heiress, a little bit irish
A little bit tower of pisa whenever i see you
So please be kind if i'm a mess
Cigarettes and chocolate milk
