Speedy Ortiz – Lucky 88 lyrics
I make a frown
I always wear it upside down
'Cause life is carnage
I once was lost, but now I'm floundered
And running late for my funerary date
Burn me later, could you smile while you do it?

I don't care anymore
Swear I don't care anymore
I don't care anymore
Swear I don't care anymore

[Chorus]
I was born with a lucky 88 on my door
Put down your last claim to fame for me, boy
(Keep me starving or get something better started)
Try and work in this town
Without a silver spoon and foot in your mouth
You see that lucky 88 on my door

One more time with reeling
You siphoned out the feeling
Can't you act responsibly?
You're the sick pup who created me
Burn out and fade
I'll convalesce you right into the grave

Though I don't care anymore
Swear I don't care anymore
I don't care anymore
Swear I don't care anymore

[Chorus]
I was born with a lucky 88 on my door
Put down your last claim to fame for me, boy
(Keep me starving or get something better started)
I was born in the cold, clotted heart of the storm
You see that lucky 88 on my door?
Keep me starving, or get something better started
Keep me starving, or get something stutter started

I was born with the lucky 88 on my door
The lucky 88 on my door
The lucky 88 on my door
The lucky 88

Doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo
