lyrics

Sheets on the bed are ruffled and the pillows are gone
Sheets on the bed are ruffled and the pillows are gone
If I find who took 'em I'll pitch one fit
take feather from the pillow and tar from the pit
I'll dress my baby up pretty then I'll be gone

Lipstick on my collar is fading away
Lipstick on my collar is fading away
I could take a wild guess where it went
or I could buy a new collar and marry it
Doesn't have a thing to do with the price of tea far away

Choked on a muffin and fell to the earth last night
Choked on a muffin and fell to the earth last night
I met the devil and he gave me a muffin
then I met God and he didn't say nothin'
Then I rode on a camel through a camel-sized needle's eye

Everybody, everybody, everybody, 1 - 2 - 3
Everybody in the world wants the same thing, even me.
There's a thing in the world that everybody wants
and you can die with a smile if you even just once
can sing about the time that you had the thing
that everybody everybody everybody wants
