the skin of my yellow country teeth lyrics – clap your hands say yeah

once – the dogs have quit their barking
“son,” – my neighbor said to me.
“know the emptiness of talking blue
the same old sheep.”
run – i’ll do no more this walking
haunted by a past i just can’t see

but let me tell you i have never planned
to let go of the hand that has been
clinging by its thick country skin
to my yellow country teeth

far – far away from west virginia
i – will try on new york city
explaining that the sky holds the
wind the sun rushes in and a child
with a shotgun can shoot down
honeybees that sting
but this boy could use a little sting!

who – will get me to a party?
who – do i have yet to meet?
you – you look a bit like coffee
and you taste a bit like me
how – can i keep me from moving?
now – i need a change of scenery
just listen to me i won’t pretend to
understand the movement of the wind
or the waves out in the ocean or how
like the hours i change softly slowly
plainly blindly oh me oh my!

/ clap your hands say yeah lyrics
