silver spoon lyrics – agony column

it’s a spoon
just a silver spoon
when i look into the bottom
i can see the moon
and the light of the moon
shines down on me
tellin’ me there’s a place
where i outta be
boy
you’re killing yourself
and you’re ruining your life
by wrecking your health
and i can see right away
your impending doom
in the bottom of that silver spoon
oh when i was low
and there was no other place
in this town to go
well i ran straight home
home to you
knowing there’d be days soon
when we were through
and i spent all my money
and all my time
wasted without reason or rhyme
and i’ve had enough
i know you’re not a toy
and i won’t be your whipping boy
i was not born to be destroyed
and i’ve had enough of playing coy
you’re a spoon
just a silver spoon
when i look into the bottom
i can see the moon
and the light of the moon
shines down on me
tellin’ me there’s a place
where i outta be
boy
you’re killing yourself
and you’re ruining your life
by wrecking your health
and i can see right away
your impending doom
in the bottom of that silver spoon
you’re a spoon
just a silver spoon
when i look into the bottom
i can see the moon
and the light of her face
shines down on me
tellin’ me there’s a place
where i outta be
boy
you’re killing yourself
and you’re ruining your life
by wrecking your health
and i can see right away
your impending doom
at the bottom of that silver spoon
oh when i was lost
and there was no other way
to pay the cost
well i ran straight home
to loving you
knowing there’d be days soon
when we were through
and i spent all my money
and all my time
wasted without reason or rhyme
but i’ve had enough
quite enough of you
and i’ve had enough of getting screwed
my whole world has gone askew
and my lips are turning blue
you’re a spoon
just a silver spoon
when i look into the bottom
i can see the moon
and the light of the moon
shines down on me
tellin’ me there’s a place
where i outta be
boy
you’re killing yourself
and you’re ruining your life
by wrecking your health
and i can see right away
your impending doom
at the bottom of that silver spoon
