ON THE SHELF


Your lipstick fell in the toilet
I don’t have the heart to tell you
A scrunchie and your wallet are airing out to dry
An empty can of something is out cold like a soldier
I’d better crack a window to let out all the steam

Maybe you could keep things on the shelf
Or your pocket or your purse
So I don’t flush ‘em down to hell
You know I’m sorry, baby for the dampness that I caused
But maybe we should keep it on the shelf

Candle by a hair-thing / Matches and some sunscreen
A strap-on by a sandal near a band-aid and some gauze
The comb and brush are tangled like a Hello Kitty hairball
The dental floss is mangled
There oughtta be some laws

Maybe you could keep things on the shelf
Or your pocket or your purse
So I don’t flush ‘em down to hell
You know I’m sorry, baby for the dampness that I caused
But maybe we should keep it on the shelf

Tampon and a tweezers
The door is always open for the orange ibuprofen
And the shower needs a scrub
The razor’s in the basket / The toothbrush has a film out
The towel needs a bracket and the mirror needs a rub
Ear-brush and an eye-brush, nose-brush and a throat-brush
Rosehip by the toe-clip
That pipe is going south
Washcloth from the hotels
Soapdish has a death wish
I don’t believe in mouthwash ‘cuz you already washed your mouth

Maybe we could keep things on the shelf
Or your pocket or your purse so I don’t flush ‘em down to hell
You know I’m sorry, baby for the dampness that I caused
But maybe we should keep it on the shelf
