Billy X. Curmano: Music

Playin' for Peanuts

(Billy X. and Steve Smith "Live" on New X: Fresh X)
You can lay on your back
On your fat feather mat.

You can sit down at your table
Reading wine labels.

You can watch color TV
'til quarter past three.

But I'll be playin'.
I'll be playin' for peanuts in Winona
If you wanna.

You can hot wire a car
Or drink moonshine from a jar.

You can ignore flashing lights
And speed off into the night.

You can attain maximum speed
And wind up in a tree.

Refrain

You can drive across my back
with your fat cat cadillac

You can cast your fishin' rod
Look to the heavens and try to find God.

You can walk on water and part the sea
That don't mean that much to me.

Cause I'll be playin'.
I'll be playin' for peanuts in Winona
If you wanna.
I'll be playin' for peanuts in Winona
If you don't wanna.
