Cracker – Kerosene Hat lyrics

Intro & break:
Em-C-G-D(bass F#)
Em-C-G-D(bass F#)

Em How can I fly with these C old doggy wings
While the G magpie sings some D(bass F#) shiny song?
Em Old corn face row of teeth, she says C sweetly to me
In the G elevator D(bass F#)

Em Everything D seems like a C dream
And A life's a scream.

Here come old Kerosene Hat
With his ear flaps waxed, a courting' his girl
Come clattering in here on your old cloven skates
With that devilish spoon

Everything seems like a dream
And life's a scream
When you're submarine


So don't you bother me death with your leathery ways
And your old chaise lounge (old chaise lounge)
Wickerman's fence of leathery tyres
And the cook's gone bad, started several fires

Everything seems like a dream
When your submarine

Head like a stream she says softly to me
From the rattling chair
Bring me a steak and my old pair of crows,
My medicine lamp

Everything seems like a dream
So life's a scream
(life's a scream)

(Ring-around-rosie, pocket full of posies)
(All fall down)
(?, Don't suffer?)

(Chaise lounge?)
