Cigarettes & Chocolate Milk –Rufus Wainwright

Cigarettes and chocolate milk 
These are just a couple of my cravings 
Everything it seems i like’s a little bit stronger 
A little bit thicker 
A little bit harmful for me 

If i should buy jellybeans 
Have to eat them all in just one sitting 
Everything it seems i like’s a little bit sweeter 
A little bit fatter 
A little bit harmful for me 

And then there’s those other things 
Which for several reasons we won’t mention 
Everything about them is a little bit stranger 
A little bit harder 
A little bit deadly 

It isn’t very smart 
Tends to make one part so broken-hearted 

Sitting here remembering me 
Always been a shoe made for the city 
Go ahead, accuse me of just singing about places 
With scrappy boys faces 
Have general run of the town 
Playing with prodigal songs 
Takes a lot of sentimental valiums 
Can’t expect the world to be your raggedy andy 
While running on empty 
You little old doll with a frown 

You got to keep in the game 
Maintaining mystique while facing forward 
I suggest a reading of ‘a lesson in tightropes’ 
Or ‘surfing your high hopes’ or ‘adios kansas’ 

It isn’t very smart 
Tends to make one part so broken-hearted 

Still there’s not a show on my back 
Holes or a friendly intervention 
I’m just a little bit heiress, a little bit irish 
A little bit tower of pisa whenever i see you 
So please be kind if i’m a mess 
Cigarettes and chocolate milk
