Circus Envy Lyrics

by REM

Here comes that awful feelin' again
Welcome the ugly animal
I hold my breath to what you sing
My pyro ba-ba-ba ball and chain
I'm not afraid
I messed it, messed it, messed it, messed it up

I've got my telescope head in the haystack
I'm gettin' tired of your dodge ball circus act
Put pepper in my coffee, I forgot to bark
On command

Here comes that awful feelin' again
Make way for monster jealousy
The strong man kicked sand
Into my breakfast cereal bowl
I spelled your name with Oatios
He messed it, messed it, messed it, messed it up

I've got my telescope head in the haystack
I am tired of your dodge ball circus act
Put pepper in my coffee, I forgot to bark
On command

You're mean, mean, mean
You tease, tease, tease me

If I were you I'd really run from me
I'd really, really wish that I were you
When I get loose I'll climb a tree
And drop a load on your head
This monster in me makes me retch
You messed it, messed it up

I've got my telescope head in the haystack
I am jealous of your dodge ball circus act
Put pepper in my coffee, I forgot to bark
Put pepper in my coffee, I forgot to bark
On command

You're mean, mean, mean
You tease, tease, tease me

Do you smell jealousy?
Do you smell jealousy?
Jealousy, jealousy
