Bone Machine

Album: Surfer Rosa (1988)
  • This is a song for Carol

    You're into Japanese fast food
    And I drop you off with your Japanese lover
    And you're going to the beach all day
    You're so pretty when you're unfaithful to me
    You so pretty when you're unfaithful to me

    You're looking like
    You've got some sun
    Your blistered lips
    Have got a kiss
    They taste a bit like everyone
    Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh

    Your bones got a little machine
    You're the bone machine

    I was talking to preachy-preach about kissy-kiss
    He bought me a soda
    He bought me a soda
    He bought me a soda and he tried to molest me in the parking lot
    Yep, yep yep yep

    I think you're pretty
    You make me hard
    Your island skin
    Looks Mexican
    Our love is rice and beans and horses lard

    Your bones got a little machine
    You're the bone machine

    Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh
    Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh
    Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh
    Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh
    Your bones got a little machineWriter/s: CHARLES THOMPSON
