The National – Keep It Upstairs lyrics

I was home entertaining some guests when I,
Fell off the chair and cracked open my head.
Bees flew out and they flew up their skirts and they,
Cracked open the window and in came the,
I was home entertaining some guests when I,
Bees flew out and they flew up their skirts because they wanted,
To travel the world.

These are the kinds of things we should worry about.
These are the kinds of things we should worry about.

But I keep it upstairs,
I keep it upstairs.
I just keep it upstairs,
I keep it upstairs.

I was out looking in cars practicing smiles
For the grand finale.

I got all day
In Cadillac city.
I got all day
In Cadillac city.

I was out walking, looking at posters,
Someone famous to kidnap and love.

But I keep it upstairs,
I keep it upstairs.
I just keep it upstairs,
I keep it upstairs.

My head is a three-star hotel, oh no,
I might be missing something.

My head is a three-star hotel, oh no,
Killers are calling on me.

My head is a three-star hotel, oh no,
Feathers are falling on my feet.

My head is a three-star hotel, oh no,
I might be missing something.

My head is a three-star hotel, oh no,
Feathers are falling on my feet.

My head is a three-star hotel.
