Back Next Pickle Juice

I would like to get into my car
And say:
"Hey shadow
Come here
Into the forefront
And find me a dame
On this road to nowhere
And then go ahead
And speak to her
In criminal talk
Yes go ahead
And say
The hell with this
Good by and good girl act
And that we didn't come into this world
To play out Mother's fairy tale
Yes sir, indeed,
We are here to pickle
In our own pickle juice.
