​Socks 'n' Sandals

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album Deepcut to Nowhere (2001).

I dunno why you love me baby
I dunno why you care
I'm losin'my memory
I'm losin'my hair
I lost my car keys around here somewhere
I'm part of the furniture
I'm stuck to that chair
So I dunno why you love me baby
I dunno why you care
Socks'n'sandals that's what I wear

I'm livin' in the suburbs
And wearin' bad clothes
Bar-becuing hot dogs
And keepin'a clean nose
My best friend's a hillbilly
With a moonshine still
Actually I'm lyin'
He's an accountant named bill
So I don't know why you love me baby
I don't know why you care
Socks'n'sandals that's what I wear

Socks'n'sandals
As I hold onto your love handles
Socks'n'sandals
As I hold onto your love handles

Porcelain ducks are lined
Up on my mantle
Fish in a pond and
One of them's a fantail
One of those clocks with
The rays like the sun
I eat my dinner with
My raincoat on
So I don't know why you love me baby
I dunno why you care
Socks'n'sandals that's what I wear

I got that midnight-blue painting
Of that oriental girl
You know the big-eyed one
Yeah you see her everywhere
Cooking sherry and a velveteen chair
And in the evening I sit right there
So I dunno why you love me baby
I dunno why you care
Socks'n' sandals that's what I wear
