Bek Lyrics

Puttin' it Down

(From the Stereopathetic Soulmanure Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

Big pain burning now
Giving me a cow
What you seem to be saying
Is you're patiently waiting
Like an ashtray for the butt

Well, I'm putting it down
But you're not picking it up
Well, I'm putting it down
But you treat me like a clown
And I don't want to be funny

Fat chance
Glued to the wall like a centerfold
Of an old cannonball
Will you put me inside
Your TV tonight
'cause you're treatin' me like a rerun

Well, I'm putting it down
But you're not picking it up
Well, I'm putting it down
But you treat me like a clown
And I don't want to be funny
No, no, no

So what
I lost my job at the Hut
My ass got cut
But I'll be better at kissin
When my teeth are all missin'
And the silverware's burnt
And I'm eatin' with my fingers

Well, I'm putting it down
But you're not picking it up
Well, I'm putting it down
But you treat me like a clown
And I don't want to be funny
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
