lyrics

TOO MUCH SAKE

And the girl’s say: Too Much Sake!
And the girl’s say: Too Much Sake!

Empty suits in back rooms singing along with pop logic
following balls down the flowery passage of blue pill's end
EXSQUEEZE ME! he said which was lost in translation
the curves of this vase buck the all pervasive trend
And then she brought in the sake ...
PLEASE ENJOY said the geisha in her powdery speech
with an Esperanto blend
Illuminati trays glittered with exclusive affectations
complete with after dinner mints
and nuts from all the major nations

And the girl’s say: Too Much Sake!
And the girl’s say: Too Much Sake!

Empty boots in back rooms divvying up the spoils
tribute from the borders of empire's end
UNSHEATH ME! he said which was lost in translation
the length of this sword is a privilege to append
And then she brought in the sake ...
PLEASE ENJOY said the geisha with her bashful demeanor
and deferential bend
Ribbons of silk flung to all four directions
as the generals lined up for their white glove inspections

And the girl’s say: Too Much Sake!
And the girl’s say: Too Much Sake!
And the girl’s say: Too Much Sake!
And the girl’s say: Too Much Sake!

What ya gonna do when they drag you by the collar?
How ya gonna feel when the dragon slaps your wrists?
60 days you’re stuck inside the slammer
And your wife can’t understand
Sayonara sweet Japan - till your time is up!

Empty goons in back rooms holding court cards and courtesans
cigarettes hanging from each anterior end
HIT ME! he said which was lost in translation
got my hands on lady luck and to my will she will bend
And then she brought in the sake ...
PLEASE ENJOY said the geisha as she shuffled to the table
which she proceeded to upend
Doubled bladed action with furious acceleration
amidst a sudden red rain and a flurry of decapitation

And the girl’s say: Too Much Sake!
And the girl’s say: Too Much Sake!
And the girl’s say: Too Much Sake!
And the girl’s say: Too Much Sake!
