Giving the Game Away

from the Matt Kollock album 'microorganism'


I know where the bodies are buried 
I’ve seen how the sausage gets made 
The cat’s out of the bag that I carry 
My groundwork is getting laid 
Spilling all the beans with nothing up my sleeves 
I’m giving the game away 

I followed the tracks that you covered 
Got help from the fly on the wall 
Dug up some good dirt on your lover 
Took a look behind the eight ball 

Spilling all the beans with nothing up my sleeves 
I’m giving the game away 

I’ll blow the lid off of this thing 
And the canary’s gonna sing 

I’m giving the game away! 

I’ve watched lots of pots get to boiling 
Crossed my heart and I’m still alive 
That snake in your grass is uncoiling 
Those rivers I’ve cried have run dry 

Spilling all the beans with nothing up my sleeves 
I’m giving the game away 

I’ll blow the lid off of this thing  
And the canary’s gonna sing

Sing!

I’m giving the game away!
I’m giving the game away!

Spilling all the beans with nothing up my sleeves 
I’m giving the game away!
