lyrics

My tongue is stuck to the roof of my mouth
just in case you have any doubt
this is perfectly acceptable indie pop
you can play to convey the right vibe in your shop
sho-op
sho-op
glottal stop glottal stop
glottal sto-o-o-op

My lips are puckered up in a pout
and there's not so much I'm singing about
but people wait patiently for the part
of the song when I say the word heart
hea-art
hea-a-a-
a-a-art
like an artisanal fart

When people ask the lady at the register
who I am she can say, "I'm not really sure
this is just the pandora station that we play.
Did you know there's a sale on feather earrings today?"
He-ey!
What do they do with the birds
all those feathers come from, anyway?
Are they
just the chickens that we eat
or do they farm them espe-cia-lly?

I play a uke an uku-le-le
it's a lot of cute for how little it weighs
and you're not supposed to take me too seriously
I'm the musical equivalent of peppermint tea
tea-ea
caffeine free
Stevia sweetened peppermint tea
tea-ea
caffeine free
Stevia sweetened peppermint tea

La la ah la oh la la la la…
Heart
