I was sittin' there all alone
I was prayin' you would come home
I was listenin' to an old blues song

(Baby, I'm wounded
Wounded and bleeding
Won't you ease my pain?)

You're gettin' a little impatient
Smokin' like a mental patient

Happiness
Fishnets and cigarettes
A pagan monkey in a drss
Tell me who can arrest*
A mind ensnared by love?

A rogue elephant for a mind
And it's treatin' me so unkind
But in my heart it's an old blues song
Playful and bitchin'
Mischievious and earthy

Happiness
Fishnets and cigarettes
A pagan monkey in a dress
Tell me who can arrest
A mind ensnared by love?

Talk about slayin' the snake
You got my heart bound up in shame
But in my soul it's an old blues song

This life can be so tragic
Until you see the magic

Happiness
Fishnets and cigarettes
A pagan monkey in a dress

I'm talking 'bout happiness
Fishnets and cigarettes
A pagan monkey in a dress
Tell me who can arrest
A mind ensnared by love?
(Baby, I'm wounded
Wounded and bleeding
Won't you ease my pain?
Hey baby
Hey baby
Don't let me cry in vain)
