Hop Along – Laments lyrics
It's a green-striped sheet
Lifted from me
I am free of two very heavy bodies

Once we three
Had slept soundly
I couldn't keep them around
Fold the blankets down and
Found new sleeping ground

Bed-springs squeaking
Tires squealing away
From one another
We all used to be lovers here

Bodies laying say they'll stay just
Like boxes stacked
The same way
Labeled and separated

Go ahead, take the couch
I know I don't wanna sit here next to nobody
Go ahead, take the fridge
I know I don't want you going hungry, yeah
Go ahead, take the cat
I know you're only gonna be coming back so
Go ahead, take it all
I know you've been wanting to
Settle down
Has it always been
Settling down

One on the left says
To the one on the right
I could make a very good wife for you

One on the right says
To the one on the left
Let's take this one step at a time

One on the right says
To the one on the left
You know I need you all the time

One on the right says
To the one on the left
I think I changed my mind
My insides sing

A song for the sad ones
Who say they'll marry, they guess
(She's wearing the white dress
If he behaves his very best)

A song for the sad ones
Who say they'll marry, they guess
(She's wearing the white dress
If he behaves his very best)

A song for the sad ones
Who say they'll marry, they guess
(She's wearing the white dress
If he behaves his very best)

A song for the sad ones
Who say they'll marry, they guess
(She's wearing the white dress
If he behaves his very best)
Yes yes yes, yes yes yes

Go ahead, take the couch
I know I don't wanna sit here next to nobody
Go ahead, take the fridge
I know I don't want you going hungry, yeah
Go ahead, take the cat
I know you're only gonna be coming back so
Go ahead, take it all
I know you've been wanting to
Settle down
Has it always been
Settling down

My elastic, steel, and spring
They will tell you everything
If you lay down for a minute
My elastic, steel, and spring
They will tell you everything
If you lay down for a minute

The mattress makers makin' his living
By the minute, by the minute
The mattress makers makin' his living
By the minute, by the minute
The mattress makers makin' his living, baby
By, by the minute
The mattress makers makin' his living, baby
By the
The mattress makers makin' his living, baby
By, by
The mattress makers makin' his living, baby
By the
