Les Claypool – Up On The Roof lyrics

The jones comes in late at night
It huts with a terrible bite
They don't come knockin' on my door
Or slink across the greasy floor

I'm up on the roof again
Watchin' the sparklers dance and play
Up on the roof again
Please don't take my ladder away(3x)

The jones it likes to call my name
Ain't got no one else for to blame
It grabs me by the shorty hairs
And drags me damn near everywhere

Repeat chorus
Repeat second verse
Repeat chorus
