I feel pretty good, I feel all right
And I've been thinkin' maybe, I could spend the night
I know you've been sad, I know I've been bad
But if you'd let me make you ribbons from a paper bag

Josephine, you're so good to me
And I know it ain't easy
Josephine, you're so sweet
You must taste just like sugar and tangerines

I won't make a sound
Sleep on the ground
When you wake I will
Drive you into town
I missed your smile
Your schoolgirl style
But I never had much fun
Maybe the very first mile

Josephine, you're so good to me
And I know it ain't easy
Josephine, you're so sweet
You must taste just like sugar and tangerines

Don't you know I watched you walkin' home from school
Your friends on the old playgrounds
You never looked so down
Won't you come and help me with these cuts of mine?
I've disconnected my heart and cut myself on the wires
Josephine

I know I was wrong, I knew all along
But I got so far from my home
I never thought I'd be so lonesome

Josephine, you're so good to me
And I know it ain't easy
Josephine, you're so sweet
You must taste just like sugar and tangerines
