mr. e’s beautiful blues lyrics – eels

the smokestack spit
black soot into the sunny sky
the load on the road
brings a tear to the indian’s eye
the elephant won’t forget
what it’s like inside its cage
the ringmaster’s telecaster
sings on an empty stage

oh-ho
godd*mn right it’s a beautiful day
oh-ho
godd*mn right it’s a beautiful day
oh-ho

the girl with the curls
and the sweet pink ribbon in her hair
she’s crawlin’ outta’ window
’cause her daddy just don’t care
come on

oh-ho
godd*mn right it’s a beautiful day
oh-ho
godd*mn right it’s a beautiful day
oh-ho

the clown with the frown
drivin’ down to the sidewalk fair
finger on the trigger
let me tell you it is quite a scare

oh-ho
godd*mn right it’s a beautiful day
oh-ho
godd*mn right it’s a beautiful day
oh-ho

the kids fit the lids
when their heads hear that crazy sound
my neighbour digs the flavour
still he’s moving to another town
and i don’t believe you’re comin’ back

godd*mn right it’s a beautiful day
oh-ho
godd*mn right it’s a beautiful day
oh-ho

well i don’t know how you’re taking
all the sh*t you see
you don’t believe anyone
but most of all openly agree
with you

godd*mn right it’s a beautiful day (with you)
oh-ho
godd*mn right it’s a beautiful day
oh-ho
godd*mn right it’s a beautiful day
oh-ho
godd*mn right it’s a beautiful day
oh-ho
