Regina Spektor - 2.99 Cent Blues lyrics

rate me

Somewhere far away where I roam There live my buffalo twin in our twin buffalo home He calls me by my native name And takes good care of my native son He even lets us drink spring water on Sundays 2.99 a gallon And somewhere further down the road where I also roam There lives my caterpillar cousin beneath a fancy engraved tomb head stone In the middle of his southern town Beneath a cemetery burial plot He don't pay rent no more But he sure likes the spot But in the furthest place i've ever known Where even I so rarely roam There lives a boy who just come back from war His flesh was wounded but he made it back home His mother calls him by his given name And the neighbors whisper how he prefers to be alone And he gets nightmares about boys dripping blood sold for 2.99 a gallon But when I get me all real tired And I got no more strength to roam I catch me a horse driven carriage ride From a local man named Ethan Frome He don't say much as he tips his hat And he carries his body as heavy as lead And he could have been flying through the snow on his sled But he wife was in bed and the horses had to be fed Besides it's 2.99 a story Pay up it's just 2.99 a story... 2.99 a gallon
