Sordid Humor – Barbarossa lyrics

She's almost 17
she breathes in gasoline
and when she falls asleep
she's got these crazy dreams

pirates take young girls away
and burn down everything

she likes blue macaws
cause she can make them talk
and she sees islands in the street
between the cars which are like
waves on the beach

she's sick of gasoline
she's sick of waiting
for Barbarossa

she gets into his pickup truck
he takes her to Africa
drops her off in a parking lot
she dreams of pearls and coconuts
