about

an assemblage of bawdy propositions

lyrics

won't you wrap me like a tree ring, make me sing
with the promise of a new spring
for the showers and the flowers that they bring
won't you wrap me like a tree ring.

won't you pour me like a tea pot, just a spot
get me all upon the first shot
please don't spill because I am steamy and I'm hot
when you pour me like a tea pot.

Im lonesome and blue, looking for you
to tear me apart, and put me to use

Won't you wring me like a wet shirt, drip and squirt
shed the water and the soap and the dirt
keep on twisting 'till my ears hurt
when you wring me like a wet shirt.
----------------------------------------------------
please squeeze me like a luffa sponge, take the plunge
you don't know just how my heart will lunge
when you use me to wipe up your grunge
please squeeze me like a luffa sponge.

wont you wack me like a floor tom, bom bom bom
beat me harder make me sing your song
keep on wailing 'till the break of dawn
when you wack me like a floor tom

Im lonesome and blue, looking for you
to tear me apart, and put me to use

Won't you carve me like a christmas ham, hot damn
slice me open just as careful as you can
save the drippings for the gravy pan
when you carve me like a christmas ham
