OH LIKE YOU'RE NOT THINKING IT TOO.

lyrics

I'm sorry for the things I said when I was hungry D Bm
When I haven't eaten I see red C G A
I know my choice of words must have made you angry D Bm
But stop pouting and make sandwiches instead C G A
You know I only love you when I'm fed C G D

Did I say that out loud? It's just my stomach talking
Be a lamb and fry a chicken while you're up
Ooh, a lamb, do we have lamb? Let's go grocery shopping
Our friendship will be stronger once I've supped
And violence much less likely to erupt

When my blood sugar drops G
My diplomacy just... stops D
And my eyes begin to measure you for caskets Bm A
If you don't want to hear G
Things that might offend your ears D
You're going to need a loaded picnic basket C G A

If I don't get some dinner I may stoop to slander
Forgiveness without eating takes too long
I need something fried in butter to rein in my candour
YOU KNOW WHAT I'M NOT SORRY; YOU'RE STILL WRONG
Look - I... was hungry when I wrote this song

I mean, I dispassionately evaluated your argument strictly on its merits C G D
And found it wanting. And needing steak sauce. D
