Lyrics

Doughnut Song

All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

had me a trick and a kick and your message
you’ll never gain weight from a doughnut hole
then thought that I could decipher your message
there’s no one here dear
no one at all

and if I’m wasting all your time this time
maybe you never learned to take
and if I’m hanging on to your shade
I guess I’m way beyond the pale

and southern men can grow gold
(you can tell me it’s over)
can grow pertty
(it’s over)
blood can be pertty
(you can tell me)
like a delicate man
(over, over your shoulder)
copper to steel to a hinge that is faltered
(you can tell me it’s over, it’s over)
that lets you in lets you in lets you in
(come in Houston)

and if I’m wasting all your time this time
I guess you never learned to take
and if I’m hanging on to your shade
I guess I’m way beyond the pale

something’s just keeping you numb

you told me last night
you were a sun now
with your very own devoted satellite
happy for you
and I am sure that I hate you
two sons too many too many able fires, hey, yes

and you’ve been wasting all my time this time
(you can tell me it’s over, I saw you)
I said you never learned to take
(you can tell me, over, over your shoulder)
and if I’m hanging on to your shade
I guess I’m way beyond the pale
I guess I’m way beyond the pale

had me a trick and a kick and your message
you’ll never gain weight from a doughnut hole
