  • I woke up this morning
    Didn't recognize the man in the mirror
    Then I laughed and I said
    "Oh silly me, that's just me"
    Then I proceeded to brush some stranger's teeth
    But they were my teeth, and I was weightless
    Just quivering like some leaf come in the window of a restroom
    I couldn't tell you what the hell it was supposed to mean
    But it was a Monday, no, a Tuesday
    No, a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
    Then Saturday came around and I said
    "Who's this stupid clown blockin' the bathroom sink?"

    All he ever wanted was to be someone in life that was just like
    All I want is to just have fun
    Live my life like a son of a gun
    I could be one thousand miles away
    But still mean what I say

    Then I woke up one morning
    Didn't recognize the man in the mirror
    Then I laughed and I said
    "Oh silly me, that's just me"
    Then I proceeded to not comb some stranger's hair
    Never was my style
    But I couldn't tell you what the hell it was supposed to mean
    'Cause it was a Monday, no, a Tuesday
    No, a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
    Then Saturday came around and I said
    "Who's this stupid clown blockin' the bathroom sink?"
    But he was sportin' all my clothes
    I gotta say, pretty pimpin'

    All he ever wanted was to be a man, but he was always
    A little too cute to be admitted under marbles lost
    He was always a thousand miles away
    While still standing in front of your face

    Then he woke up this morning
    Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror
    Then laughed and said
    "Oh silly me, that's just me"
    Then I proceeded to brush some stranger's teeth
    But they were my teeth, and I was weightless
    Just quivering like some leaf come in the window of a restroom
    And I couldn't tell you what the hell it was supposed to mean
    'Cause it was a Monday, no, a Tuesday
    No, a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
    Then Saturday came around and I said
    "Who's this stupid clown blockin' the bathroom sink?"
    But he was sportin' all my clothes
    I gotta say, pretty pimpin'

    I woke up this morning
    Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror
    I woke up this morning
    Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror
    I woke up this morning
    Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror
    I woke up this morning
    Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror
    I woke up this morning
    Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror
    I woke up this morning
    Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror Writer/s: Kurt Samuel Vile
