I'm on my time with everyone
I have very bad posture

sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
Distill the life that's inside of me
sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I'm anemic royalty

Give me a Leonard Cohen afterward
So I can sigh eternally

I'm so tired I can't sleep
I'm a liar and a thief
sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I'm anemic royalty

Lemon, warm milk and laxatives
Cherry-flavored antacids

sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
Distill the life that's inside of me
sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I'm anemic royalty
