Hello



Suburban Rental, ain't no home
Lonesome to the core
Megalithic Power Lines
Right at our back door

Another minute in that house
Alone I couldn't take
Electric f#ck!n' oven
Another chocolate cake

Sick of being on my own
I hitch-hiked into town
You had your wheels your freedom
Not much were you around

I was 8 months pregnant
Waddling down the road
Wearing one of my two dresses
Seemed like such a heavy load

When I told you, you were FURIOUS
"What a stupid thing to do -
You know hitch-hiking's DANGEROUS
and the BABY'S NEARLY DUE!?!!!"

So, finally, you found a place
Way up in The Mountains
A cosy little cottage
Good riddance Cowshed Canyons

One month later... Baby cry
It's "milky time" again
Dependant on, no more just I
Hello my little friend
