6. Kay

Joey Kulkin photo and lyrics circa '98

Kay

I asked her to marry me
soon as she woke
big blues opened wide
Kay thought it was a joke
But why would I joke
about forever like that?
I’d never screw around
with forever
like that

So I asked Kay again
for her hand
and a life
I asked Kay again
to stand proud as my wife
We’ll laugh and
we’ll dance and
naked we’ll prance
signature vows
in the south of France

I hope Kay says Yes
Please, Kay, say Yes
20 seconds have passed
annnnnnd
here comes the stress

My Kay love said No,
said no to my hand
and now I’m alone
in a god-awful band

Here was a girl
who slept in my bed
then rejected my hand
and ruined my head
Here was a girl
who slept in my bed
then rejected my hand
and ruined my head

Kay smiled and
Kay grinned
but by now
Kay had sinned
a future with Kay
on forever I pinned

Kay told me I’m sweet
that I was The First
but what does it matter, Kay,
my bubble’s been burst

Kay’s lips quenched my thirst
her heart pure and true
but at that point
I had no idea
what to do

Here was a girl
who slept in my bed
then rejected my hand
and ruined my head

rejected my hand
and ruined my head

Kay turned down my hand
on that morning of dread
