Raccoon In A Honeysuckle Bush

lyrics

If life was a peach on a velvet cushion
I'd be a raccoon in a honeysuckle bush
I would lay around with you all day in the shade
But life is a sea and I'm just a possum
I'm blind treading water til I sink to the bottom
Blind treading water til I sink to the bottom

Well, I could have had me an uptown dolly
With a rhinestone shimmy and a pistol, by golly
We'd sleep all day, ball every night
But snaggletooth Sallies are all that I'm finding
So I'm shining up coal til it's bright like a diamond
Shining up coal til it's bright like a diamond
And I'm blind treading water til I sink to the bottom
Blind treading water til I sink to the bottom
Blind treading water til I sink to the bottom

Instrumental

Well, you're born a little baby, hatched from the egg
You roll around a little while
While you limber up your legs
Then you start up that hill, muddy, boy, and steep
And while you're still young you think you are a soldier
Go looking for the truth
And the truth will make you older

And I'm blind treading water till I sink to the bottom
Blind treading water til I sink to the bottom
Blind treading water til I sink to the bottom
Well, life is a sea and I'm just a possum
I'm blind treading water til I sink to the bottom
