about this table


Take the train out of Memphis
Hit the booty by nine
Looking for something special
And you're so fine, oh-so fine

Gonna take a big cleaver
And drop off all of the beef
Spread it all amongst the fishes
Along the reef, along the reef

So long, sugar, but he won't go
So long, sugar, but you don't know
So long, and I, but you don't know

Wasted time
