Treasure Island

I'd Be Embarrassed, But She Was Like An Eight-And-A-Half


Oh, she took my cash and wiped her sweat
I wiggled out of bed and the sheets so wet
she caught me then, in her money net,
said,

another hour
and thank god for black-out curtains
because I just got paid this week
and we're gunna make it
a hot night all day.
