​Laments Of A Mattress

This song is by Hop Along and appears on the album Freshman Year (2005).

Hehmm, what? fuck you, I'm walking out, it's my apartment

Green striped sheets lifted from me
I am free of two very heavy bodies
Once we three had slept soundly
But I couldn't keep them around
Fold the blankets down
And found new sleeping ground
Bed springs squeaking
Tires squealing away from one another
We all used to be lovers here
Bodies playing
Stay they'll
Stay like their boxes stacked
Stay labeled and separated
Go ahead take the couch
I know I don't want to sit next to nobody
Go ahead take the fridge and all
I don't want you going hungry
Go ahead take the cat
I know you're only gonna be coming back
Go ahead take it all
I know how you've wanting to settle down down down
Has it always been settling down? down down

The one on the left says to the on the right
I could make a very good wife for you
The one on the right to the one on the left
Let's take this one step at a time
One on the the right says to the one on the left
You know I need you all the time I ah I
The one on the left says to the one on the right
I think I've changed my mind
I can't help but think
My insides have to sing
Now the weight gets the better of me
And my insides have to sing
Song for the sad ones
Who say they'll marry they guess
She's wearing a white dress if he behaves his very best
Song for the sad ones
Who say they'll marry they guess
She's wearing a white dress if he behaves his very best
Song for the sad ones
Who say they'll marry they guess
She's wearing a white dress if he behaves his very best
Song for the sad ones
Who say they'll marry they guess
She's wearing a white dress if he behaves his very best
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yeah
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes

Go ahead take the couch
I know I don't want to sit next to nobody
Go ahead take the fridge and all
I don't want you going hungry
Go ahead take the cat
I know you're coming back so
Go ahead take it all
I know how you've been
You've been wanting to all this time
To settle down all
Has it always been settling down? down down
My elastic, steel and spring
They will tell you everything
If you lay down
For a minute
Oh my elastic, steel and spring
They will tell you everything
If you lay down
For a minute
The mattress maker's making his living by the minute, by the minute
The mattress maker's making his living by the minute, by the minute
The mattress maker's making his living by the minute, by the minute
The mattress maker's making his living by the minute, by the minute
So, go ahead
