lyrics

Eddie is so entertaining,
Doing what he loves the best,
And now she’s calling out his name,
And clawing at his hairy chest.

Watch little Eddie’s rigid hips,
As he heaves his tongue along his lips,
And Sheena smiled because she knew,
That’s just about all that they’ll do,
Then watch him chew his sleeve,
When she’s saying she’ll call you.

Eddie’s gone to Tel Aviv.

Well then he bought a ticket for the aeroplane,
Feeling sure that’s the cure for my distress,
And what’s the cure for labour pains,
Well then she left me feeling quite under dressed,
And it’s a shame you’re going through what your mother’s been through,
Keep out what’s out and keep in what’s in you.

And it’s a shame you’re going through what your mother’s been through,
Keep out what’s out and keep in what’s in you,
And Sheena smiled because she knew,
That’s just about all that she’ll do,
Oh nurse I can hardly breathe,
But I will see it through.

Eddie’s gone to Tel Aviv.

I saw them flapping on the bed,
I saw him laying down his hands upon her greedy head.

So then I ran through the open bedroom door,
And cry why do you do to him the thing I’m waiting for?

Eddie’s gone to Tel Aviv,
And good council says that the air is sweeter,
But there’s nothing else so dangerous.

Her unripe belly strained,
Her guts are tightly pressed,
And the frills of these fragile things are frayed,
Like the crackle of an ornate dress,
While the baby’s kicking.

While the baby’s kicking up a fuss,
Just barely squandered from the dust,
Life hardly belongs to us,
Sheena thinks and lightly blew,
The dust from her sleeve,
Where you wandering to?

Eddie’s gone to Tel Aviv.
