Bek Lyrics

Burnt Orange Peel

(From the One Foot In The Grave Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

In all the world of things to be, I got a garden hose and a color TV
I got time on my hands, I got time on my hands
Nobody cares what I do!

Long ago, things to do, I got a burnt orange peel and a potato stew
I got work to get done, got work to get done
Nobody knows where to run!

I've got a quart of milk, and some sound advice
Got some trees that are fake but they smell so nice
Don't give me the flu! Nobody knows why we puke!

Back and forth, I dodge a fly, like a feather in the sky
Write me out a check, give me all your cash
Nobody knows so let's just go home
