Tragically Hip – Little Bones lyrics

It gets so sticky down here
Better butter your cue-finger up
It's the start of another new year
Better call the newspaper up
2. 50 for a hi-ball,
And buck and a half for a beer
Happy hour, happy hour
Happy hour is here

The long days of Shockley are gone
So is football Kennedy style
Famous last words taken all wrong
Wind up on the very same pile
2. 50 for a decade
And a buck and a half for a year
Happy hour, happy hour
Happy hour is here

I can cry, beg and whine
T'every Rebel I find
Just to give me a line
I could use to describe

They'd say, "Baby eat this chicken slow
It's full of all them little bones. "
"Baby eat this chicken slow
It's full of all them little bones. "

So regal and decadent here
Coffin cheaters dance on their graves
Music, all it's delicate fear
Is the only thing that don't change
2. 50 for and eyeball
And a buck and a half for an ear
Happy hour, happy hour
Happy hour is here

Well nothing's dead down here, just a little tired
Nothing is dead down here, it's just a little tired
Oh nothings's dead down here, it's just a little tired
Nothing is dead down here, it's just a little tired
Oooh, "Baby eat this chicken slow
It's full of all them little bones. "
"Baby eat this chicken slow
It's full of all them little bones. "

    This song was written when the tragically hip were down in New Orleans. They were at a restaurant and the waiter said: "better eat that chicken slow its full of all them little bones." I believe that's also when the tragically hip wrote New Orleans is sinking but that was long before it actually sunk!

    Lol :) I have no idea what they are talking about. I had to look this up because I couldn't make out what they were saying. Stranger even still I thought this was rem lol. The actual lyrics make more sense than the ones I thought I heard.
    I guess the best advise the guy could give in the end was to eat the chicken slow so 'dude' wouldn't die choking on one of those little bones. Time ticks on for everyone. Best you can do for now is eat the chicken slow so you live to see another day.
