I got some bottle rockets
We're pulling limbs from sockets
We're watching slipping sliding bodies
Drinking cocktails, fuck it

I love the pole dancers
I crave the way they rock it
I got some big credit
In my pants pocket, dig it, lapdance, hog it

During happy hour
I come down to the pleebs
Slummin' gives me power
Over all the dweebs

I feel so fucking lethargic
I feel larger than life
It feels fucking cathartic
I'm having an epiphany, just in time


I ordered bottle service
It's my first time, I'm nervous
Try not to show nothing on the surface
My purpose to purchase personal flattery
It's a burlesque. It's a travesty.
Prefer to be referred as your majesty
Apolitical, typical apathy
Pitiful tragedy (is that for me?)


On a scale of one to ten
From it sucked to I will come back again
I give a solid five
Maybe I'm so high I love this dive

Let me tell you my life story
Before I donned this three piece suit
I was a shit-eating glorious baby
You'd have licked my boot

So what if I sit and watch all day
So what if I like to pay
I'm not raining on your parade
I'm not taking your revolution away


On a scalle of Boyz II Men
To the end of the road & back again
I must apologize
I'm lost and I can't find my friends
Let me tell you my life story
Meter's running, you've got time for me
Feel bad, but I'm not that sorry
I heard life begins at forty
Don't rain on my parade
Don't take my revolution away...
