lyrics

[Brandon Allday]
i'm not a comedian but hang around long enough
and funny shit will happen, this party cracking

before rand mcnally, my family walked the land midwest to cali
big quarters, now we
destined for success or failure
either way, we getting what's coming good sailor

don't put me in the earth, no
put me in the sky if the demand don't meet with the supply
flip my id at the door i'm a donor
yellow tag special this vessel is a loaner

in the pocket, don't wait up
a couple new bills this week
pay what i owe 2 cent not missing
denny hecker's court records bad business

beware of the man with a dollar and a plan
get out the way or follow his command
yeah, i don't slur or stammer
if i took the train, i'd let her get my transfer

[Chorus]
miss daisy driven by ambition
value of a dollar blue yellow ribbons
heart shaped gift hard to make a living
do me this small favor

to forgive is divine
but to live is undefined
death is a shutter click glimpse away
for a moment then it rinse away

[Brandon Allday]
pass me the keys, i'll be the pilot thread it through the eyelet
paint another panel, print another strip
spray it til it shine, let the sun red drip
old betsy waving like she know me

let it burn, runners on first and second
by the time he hit third, coach send him
it not a hard sell
buy it, break it and put it on a yard sale

faith is undermined and overrated
television lie made the proud one sacred
made him love lucy made her love raymond
we boycotted grapes and california raisins

snacking fruit pies and a soda
go run the motor 'fore the slithering cobra
a rich man cheats his own son, feast on the young
a wise man never leave a crumb

[Chorus]
miss daisy driven by ambition
value of a dollar blue yellow ribbons
heart shaped gift hard to make a living
do me this small favor

to forgive is divine
but to live is undefined
death is a shutter click glimpse away
for a moment then it rinse away
