Ambiguous

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album Don't Tell Columbus (2007).

Well I might seem ambiguous
But I don't want to cause a fuss
I just want my bread buttered on both sides
Someone spread this virus
All around the world till it got to us
And now we just sit back and let things slide

So I'm not getting up till I hear the sound
Of the whip-poor-will when the sun goes down
And the garbage man has been around and gone
And the turkey in the oven is good and dumb
The river is filled with linoleum
And the meek inherit the earth from their friends the scum

Ambig ambig ambiguous
Ooh ooh ooh ambiguous

You might as well remain ambiguous
I asked a woman the other day
How you gonna vote on election say
She said she's gonna go for the man with the nicest tie
Well that sounds like she's thinking straight
He sounds like the candidate
That idea is surely gonna fly
So I went down to the hardware store
For a bag of nails and a kitchen door
And some chicken wire to wrap around my bed
I might seem ambiguous
But I don't think it's such a curse
It's better than sticking your neck out
And losing your head

Ambig ambig ambiguous
Ooh ooh ooh ambiguous

Now there's two sides to every coin
A head and a tail and a sidelong join
I'll take either one when they call the toss
I don't care who'll win or lose
Makes no difference who you choose
You might as well remain ambiguous

So I'm not getting up till I hear the sound
Of the whip-poor-will when the sun goes down
And the garbage man has been around and gone
And the turkey in the oven is good and dumb
The river is filled with linoleum
And the meek inherit the earth from their friends the scum

Ambig ambig ambiguous
Ooh ooh ooh ambiguous
