Tightwad Hill

Album: Insomniac (1995)
  • Cheapskate on the hill
    A thrill seeker making deals
    Sugar city urchin washing time

    Town of lunatics
    Begging for another fix
    Turning tricks for speedballs
    One more night

    Making your rounds once again
    Turning up emptyhanded

    Bumming a ride
    Burning daylight
    Last up at dawn... tight wad hill

    Drugstore hooligan
    Another white trash mannequin
    On display to rot up on the hill

    Living out a lie
    But having the time of his life
    Hating every minute of his existence

    Making your rounds once again
    Turning up emptyhanded

    Bumming a ride
    Burning daylight
    Last up at dawn... tight wad hill

    Making your rounds once again
    Turning up emptyhanded

    Bumming a ride
    Burning daylight
    Last up at dawn... tight wad hill

  • Tanya from London, Englandlove this song. can relate alot to it. not one of my faves but it still rocks
  • Mister Penguin from San Francisco-ish, CaYep. It wasn't mainstream enough for America, so they didn't buy it. My favorite song off of Insomniac as well.
