lyrics

Too Tight

Watch it as it comes
As it comes undone
Zipper stuck
Belt too tight

Hems are falling down
Thinning at the seems
Yellow patches
Under arms

It’s too tight a fit
I’ve grown out of it
It’s too tight a fit
I’ve sweated through it

Starch can’t stand up straight
Bleach can’t kill the stains
It’s beaten washing machines
And irons

Creases are ingrained
Stains they just don’t fade
Soap suds don’t shift it
At all

It’s too tight a fit
I’ve grown out of it
It’s too tight a fit
I’ve sweated through it

Catch it as it rolls
As it rolls down hill
Through splayed fingers
To the floor

Watch my money learn
How to disappear
Flowing freely
From my sides

It’s too tight a fit
I’ve grown out of it
It’s too tight a fit
I’ve sweated through it
