You only got one finger left
And it's pointing at the door
And you're taking for granted
What the lords laid on the floor

So, I'm picking up the pieces
And I'm putting them up for sale
Throw your meal ticket out the window
Put your skeletons in jail

'Cause, Lord only knows, it's getting late
Your senses are gone, so don't you hesitate
To give yourself a call, let your bottom dollars fall
Throwing your two-bit cares down the drain

Invite me to the seven seas
Like some seasick man
You'll do whatever you please
And I'll do whatever I can

Titanic fare-thee-well
My eyes are turning pink
Don't call us when the new age
Gets old enough to drink

'Cause, Lord only knows, it's getting late
Your senses are gone, so don't you hesitate
To move on up the hill there's nothing dead left to kill
Throwing your two-bit cares down the drain

Yeah

Odelay, odelay, odelay, odelay
Odelay, odelay, odelay, just passing through
Odelay, odelay, odelay, odelay

Going back to Houston
Do the hot dog dance
Going back to Houston
To get me some pants
