lyrics

If I had a hammer I would hammer in the morning
And if I had a lantern I'd keep hammering at night
But if that little lantern were to flicker without warning
I would smash it with the hammer
Find another source of light

Sometimes I get guilty when I feel worse than the weather
I sit beneath my covers and I wish that is were gray
So I could go out walking in my coat of Spanish leather
Arm in arm and I'm together
Till the feeling goes away

Oh my oh you
Tell me what am I supposed to do
When the giants in the castle cloud come looking for their goose
Do I do what do I do do do?

Knee-deep in a novel about a kid who steals a locket
Soon enough I'm thinking that it's something I should try
I have to check myself and pull my mind out of my pocket
If I got it I would hock it
Before the conflict could arise

Sitting through a movie where an actor finds a bible
Your hand was in my pocket you were breathing in my ear
I said I couldn't leave until I heard them say the title
Aren't I a Christian idol
And the boyfriend of the year?

Oh my oh a
Tell me what am I supposed to say
When the people from the movies come to carry me away
What do I say what do I say?
What do I say what do I do today?
