Cold War Kids

Cold War Kids - Expensive Tastes

rate me

Strings attached, fake eye lashes

Broke apart the piggie bank for petty cash

Sensitive sister blush, and don't stare

Watch the children squabblin' in the square

Tip my hat, low windows

Once I saw you naked, there was nothing to show

Piano plays, sonata tempo

Of all the girls of in our class she's the most refined

I'd like to be there in the morning when you wake up

Maybe pipe dream, but come easter we could pack up

I'd like to be there in the morning when you wake up

Maybe pipe dream, but come easter we could pack up

I like to show up at your door step

Wearing the winter tie my neighbour tied,

And meet your family, compliment cookin'

Drink the beer your uncles are brewin'

Flat-out refused to take that job

Just because i'm poor don't mean I can't be a snob

Strawberry hair, fair freckled skin

Waiting like a creep outside catillian

Shy expression, shawl on her shoulders

Bought this house with money that your grandfather stole

Much too young, save the imagination

Ruined an elegant girl's reputation

I'd like to be there in the morning when you wake up

Maybe pipe dream, but come easter we could pack up

Woah, woah

Woah, oh

Woah, oh

Woah, oh

And when they ask me my occupation

I'm a prayin man working on my patience

I got no preference, politic party

Parents take away my car keys

Mass lets out, rollin' smokes for trades

drink my weight coffee at the penny arcade

rows of shoes, shelves of jewerly

Mama's dying her hair in the vanity

Daddy's watch too tight, try silver spoon for size

Harder than a needle through a camel's eye

Folks gather around the table, find a place

Boys that girl don't have expensive tastes
