Deep Sea Divers

driving that Infiniti all along the coast
doctor of divinity - I didn’t mean to boast
with your strange affinity for whiskey & coke
and looking at the stars

brother Shawn, here’s a disk for your collection
we’re gonna go check out this here natural selection
sell it to the lady up the stairs
smells sweet enough to make the buyer beware

We were the razor blade under the driver’s seat
we were a serenade for the survivors
after a welcoming that we might’ve overstayed
we were in the arms of the deep-sea divers

send me a Righteous Babe* to settle me down
these bicycle cops are circlin’ around
you and your knockout drops, well I need ’em
and I need a volunteer, cuz the sharks, you gotta feed ’em

look up to the heavens for the velveteen rabbit**
if you see the D7*** kick me like a bad habit
one last request for Dean Moriarty
tell a dirty joke at all tomorrow’s parties

We were the razor blade under the driver’s seat
we were a serenade for all you survivors
after the welcoming that we might’ve overstayed
we were in the arms of the deep-sea divers

This one reminds me of Jonathan Richman, too. Great stuff.

This one is has a quaint looseness to it that's really grown on me.
