lyrics

walnut
lyrics and music by Penelope Houston
Now my heart is a small black hard
shrivelled rotten little walnut
Should I crack it and chop it
and roll it with nougat into a nut log?
Would you eat it?

Forgiveness, that's my deficiency
Kindness, sounds pretty good to me
Frustration, you wrote the recipe
Resentment, the special today

All my life I've been waiting to
break out of the kitchen into the ether
So take my hand pull me up, wake me up
out of this fever, into the dreamer

Forgiveness, that's my deficiency
Kindness, sounds pretty good to me
Frustration, you wrote the recipe
Resentment, the special today

Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby
You sure can dish it up
Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby
You sure can dish it up
Put it on the table, I'm hungry
What's for lunch?

Now my heart is a small black hard
shrivelled rotten little walnut
Should I crack it and chop it
and roll it with nougat into a nut log?
Would you eat it?

Forgiveness, that's my deficiency
Kindness, sounds pretty good to me
Frustration, you wrote the recipe
Resentment, the special today

Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby
You sure can dish it up
Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby
You sure can dish it up
Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby
You sure can dish it up
Put it on the table, I'm hungry
What's for lunch?
Put it on the table
I'm hungry, What's for lunch?
