All the Shoes in Vulgaria Are For Sale

Music ©1973 by Robert Davidson
Lyrics © 1973 by Robert Davidson & CP Roth

The things you do
When you tie my shoe
And when you do
It makes me go insane

And I eat my shoes for you now

The day I met you
You had a wet shoe
Your love had left
And you threw up your shoes

Let’s eat our shoes tonight

Oh baby please
I’m on my knees
I’ve grown accustomed to your shoes
And whats in ‘em
Give me laced loafers
High heels made of prisms
Let me eat your feet and shoes
And what’s in ‘em

We live off of shoes
We do what we choose
Therefore we conclude
We live off of shoes

We bring you the gnus
The gnus of the shoes
The gnus of the shoes

Inside it’s so soft
Let’s get our shoes off
I have a desire
My shoes are on fire

Don’t try to hide
Your shoe’s untied
I bet you’ve tried
To make it like me

Part II

You’ve been smokin my dope for an awful long time
You’re dead on your ass and your brain cells are dying
Walking in the hallway, you stumble and fall
You went through the plaster, made a hole in the wall

And it’s easy when you get this high
Tomorrow morning you’ll want to die
You just dream, why don’t you try?

Nobody misses you here or at home
Your mission in life seems forever to roam
You’ll grow up real plastic and become an unknown
You’ll either get married or forever be stoned
And though you may like it, you’ll have no choice
No one will want to hear your voice
It says nothing now, it only annoys

You’ve been kissed by the wind and blessed by the sun
Your mission here is never done
A gift to the world so the others get by
Breaking their ass for what money can buy
For what money can buy.
