THE HOUSE THAT HORSE BUILT (LET THE GREAT WORLD SPIN)
Joe Hurley/Colum McCann
MY NAME IS TILL (YOU CAN CALL ME SWEETCAKES)
You can call me sweetcakes,or honeypie,or miss bliss, i'm gonna make you cry with happiness , my shimmy shake, chocolate baked, is all yours to take, only one rule and thats this..dont ever try to kiss my mouth, last soldier did that, ended up going south,
had a necklace of bullets in his chest..
I blew them fancy vietnam medals off his vest
We can step into the walk-in fridge, or maybe down in that ditch, yeah its new york honey,i know it stinks, piss and things, but its all blood..under the bridge
I seen a lot of big boys, but ohhhh..
you're the biggest
I seen a lot of big bills too, snorted one or two,
but i never got rich, not like you, unless you count my little girl, and all the soft silk in the world,
you try to leave here, you might get killed,
but it don't matter anyway 'cos i dont have the will...
Come and have your fill
My name is Till
And I'm still-borne
In the house, in the house that horse built
