Old 97s

Old 97s - Rollerskate Skinny

rate me

Roller skate skinny and the terrible twos

How can you have everything and nothing to lose

You and nobody see eye to eye

You're gonna wake up with a ghost instead of a guy

Bulletin board on the wall of a church

Soaking up the city from a top-step perch

You're gonna break down on a midnight date

Gonna curse this town, you're gonna run late

You're pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny

Pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny

Do you want to meet up at the Pickwood Bowl

We could knock nine down and leave one in the hole

Wouldn't be here if the Athenia hadn't sunk

Or if Dear ol Dad hadn't got so drunk

Every other day is a kick in the shins

Every other day it's like the day just wins

But you make it all right, you make it OK

You make me sorta glad that I waited till today

You're pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny

Pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny

(guitar break)

Roller-skate skinny and the terrible twos

Two years in and it's time to choose

Love feels good when it sits right down, puts its feet up on the table it

Sends a bowl around

Ain't nobody gonna see eye to eye

With a girl who's only gonna stand collarbone high

Rain's gonna come in fair-sized drips

And we're gonna go to heaven wearing paper-hat ships

You're pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny

Pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny

I believe in love, but it don't believe in....

I believe in love, but it don't believe in me

I believe in love, but it don't believe in me

(repeat)
