Lyrics: Eraserheads - Butterscotch



Butterscotch
Eraserheads


You can take me to the prom
Promise not to tell your mom
Mama never tells you why
But she kicks you in the eye
I don't think she understands
I just wanna hold your hand
I don't even hold a car so we couldn't get that far

Father Marcus said to me
Just confess and you'll be free
Sit you down upon my lap
Tell me your sins just like that
You said baby know the rule
Gotta go to Catholic school
All the teacher says you're fine
When you're down with dirty minds

I am only in my teens
I live only for my dreams
I know I can't make you stay
Life is journey anyway

Teacher, teacher please make me well
I don't want to go to hell
Teacher, teacher what can I do
I don't know boy
It's up to you

It's time to free your mind
It's time to cleanse your soul
Repeat

Yo Father! Forgive me for I have sinned
I'd rather talk to God but he's out and you're in
It's a little complicated but Father don't sweat it
You can hear me out and you can just forget it

Now I haven't been to church in about ten years
One time, I have to pull my little sister's ear
But I'm not really violent and it shows
I go flower power as the stupid song goes
Sometimes I tell a lie but
only when its true
I often say the words like Shit and Fuck you
I like to read a lot of dirty comic books
and I give my teacher a lot of dirty looks
But this is the last thing that I ever going to say
It's embarrassing for me to talk to you this way
Before I forget and before I carry on, I stole a table
Napkin from a fancy restaurant
Now please father tell me what I gotta do
I am full of guilt and now it's up to you.

I am full of guilt and now it's up to you
Hey!

Just say ten Hail Mary's
Twenty-one Glory be's
Thirteen Our Father's
And a hundred Amen
Amen Amen Amen Amen Amen Amen Amen Amen Amen Amen Amen Amen
Amen
Aww!

You can take me to the prom
Promise not to tell your mom
Mama never tells you why
But she kicks you in the eye
I don't think she understands
I just wanna hold your hand
I don't even hold a car so we couldn't get that far

I am only in my teens
I live only for my dreams
I know I can't make you stay
Life is journey anyway

I am only in my teens
I live only for my dreams
I know I can't make you stay
Life is journey anyway

Life is journey anyway
Life is journey anyway hey
