lyrics

It was easier not to tell my Gran I never liked mince pies
Building a city of Tupperware from the annual re-supplies
In the office they like to snigger at the pink ones
But if my hummus salad's fresh, who gives a shit about pigments?
Don’t get me wrong, you know I’m fond of my collection
But it’s never something that I’d plan a party event ‘round

Choking on a homemade ciabatta, a pet that can’t save me
He’s freakin out, water won’t help, it’s a Wednesday
Your life doesn’t flash, more a moment of clarity, weightlessness and embarrassment
At my drool soaked fate, my dad would be devastated, dying in testate
Falling out the backdoor in the rain, in socks with my name on
Knocking neighbour’s doors in vein
Only just past my prime and never finished the decorating

At times I miss being the youngest kid in the family
Mickey mouse jumpers, someone who knits for me
Stealing all the attention at Ruby Wedding celebrations
I could blow a candle out from ten paces
Even if it wasn’t mine, I’d only bring sunshine
Or mild hilarity just by trying on your glasses
Upside down, wag my finger and smile, Dennis Taylor style
Get my hair ruffled, a slide-tackle across the carpet
Cartoon quests creep into every dream
Getting mixed up with secret anxieties
Like how I lied to my mum, she still talks of the injustice
But I wasn’t just wiping my feet I really meant to kick him
And kick him hard, though he was my best friend
