mushroom the ritz.

from by Rudy Charisma



hey hey
where you goin'
i don't know what i'm doin'
i guess i'm off to get loaded
and mushroom the ritz

what a fancy, fancy dinner
what a busful of winners
and these bottles of scotch are so small
i guess we'll mushroom the ritz

i gave me a little haircut
got so dressed up i forgot
to act polite at the end of the night
and say look out, look out, look out

so i guess that i'll just watch you
don't know where i got you
but that noise is neat
watch the dancing meat
while we mushroom the ritz

you want to get all busy
but i'm too fuckin' dizzy
from the black label beer
and the spit in my ear
and the mushroom the ritz

now it's snowing on the lake
and it's cold outside
like a murderer's wake
and there's a flash in the bed
and a song in my head
mushroom the ritz

all these bizarre, inguinal people
those preachers in the steeples
of sports therapy
and business degrees
and i don't think i get it

the guitar boy's only funny
when you spend the money
to fuck your head
drink 'til you're dead
and mushroom the ritz

la la la la la la...
