Flamingo & Palm Tree

You can take my car I can walk
My phone don’t need to talk
My hat, my coat, my boots, and my winter gloves
You can take anything that you might like
My old skate board my ten-speed bike
You can even have my sixteenth century oriental rug
But don’t you take my
Flamingo and palm tree baby blue Christmas coffee mug

Take my house here’s the keys
My wife I’m serious please
I got a case of beer in the fridge you catch a good buzz
You can take my hair my eyes my skin
And my fingers you can have all ten
And if you’re desperate I could draw you up a pint of blood
But don’t you take my
Flamingo and palm tree baby blue Christmas coffee mug

Some of you hit the pipe shoot up or get drunk
Whatever gets you off
All I need is some caffeine black liquid hot steam
And that mug
It always does the job

Take my computer my guitars
Comic books, baseball cards
You can cram it all in the back of a U-Haul truck
You can eat the dinner right off my plate
My last piece of cake
Then I’ll wave good by and wish you the best of luck
But don’t you take my
Flamingo and palm tree baby blue Christmas coffee mug
