lyrics

Chicken Dinner

Sitting round the table having chicken dinner
Your folks are trying to figure out if I’m a saint or a sinner
Staring at the plates reading leaves from a teacup
They never even think to ask me what is up
They ask me about my education like they’ve something to teach me
And they ask me about the jobs I’ve had
Yeah they ask me about the jobs I’ve had
But I’ve only got one number so it’s hard to reach me

Chicken flambé
The wine is rosé
I think I got to mosey
My host are getting nosy
Sex is on the menu
A hex is on my head
I feel if this continues
Someones’ gonna wind up dead

No need to get vexed
We were just having sex
Me and you daughter
I would have told you but to ask, you didn’t bother
We were just having sex
Me and you daughter
I would have told you but to ask, you didn’t bother

Well the house we were in fell into a silence
While the cars passing by outside knocked over the pylons
Your folks live their lives in a little museum
There’s things going on around them but they just don’t see em
Like circumcision, life decision, womb incision, open vision
Nuclear fission, splashing jism, Christ has risen, television

Chicken flambé
The wine is rosé
I think I got to mosey
My host are getting nosy
Sex is on the menu
A hex is on my head
I feel if this continues
Someones’ gonna wind up dead

No need to get vexed
We were just having sex
Me and you daughter
I would have told you but to ask, you didn’t bother
We were just having sex
Me and you daughter
I would have told you but to ask, you didn’t bother
