Headstones – Above Ground Swimming Pools

I don’t mind lulls in conversation
I don’t dislike an uncomfortable pause
An awkward moment is to be savoured
Not unlike obscene telephone calls
I don’t mind a few giant clichés
There’s nothing wrong with a little bragging
I don’t despise grandiose displays
Outlandish disguises we can hide in
I don’t mind holes punched in the drywall
I see no reason not to park on the front lawn
And I approve of above ground swimming pools
Staying up until a half-hour past dawn

Ridin’ high in a goddamn limousine
Steven Tyler right beside me
I am ridin’ high in a goddamn limousine
Steven Tyler right beside me

I’m drinking drinks that are natural and green
Not a goddamned one of them get me high
I’m flagging a cab, meet Ozzy Osbourne and the
Rest of his crew and their supplies
But I see Lou Reed and he’s flashin’ an eight ball
He’s had more than a couple a brews
Lou seems to have it all under control this fall and
Nothing he hears is ever news
I call Alice Cooper up to have a quick game
I’m pretty good on the back nine
Alice cuts it short, his girlfriend’s already late and
She’s got to be to work on time
Say you love me, I say you don’t
You say you need me, promise you won’t

It’s all that we have
It’s all that you have
Riding high in a goddamn limousine
Steven Tyler right beside me
Drinking drinks that are natural and green
Not a goddamned one gets me high
He keeps on drivin’ and I’m listening to him talk
Let me out a the next stop
And then there’s Ozzy and he’s flaggin’ me down
Wayne and Garth are right beside him
Say you love me maybe you won’t
You said you love me I say you don’t
You said you need me I promise you won’t
Remember you won’t
