lyrics

been out with the witches and thieves
crow like a cuckold, praying on my knees and eating biscuits
with a headful of fleas, shirt full of holes with a skull on the sleeve
well that’s the biz kid

drank about a half a cup of bourbon this morning
from a dancing disney princess tea
set I’ve gotta feeling it’s a sure thing
I’m gonna be on my feet
I bought a lottery ticket cuz i'm optimistic

got a fresh cut daisy press suit
gotta point fingers, i’m acting like a mute in a glee choir
miming the tune you don’t believe in heaven well they don’t believe in you
cuz you’re a liar
but you look pretty cute
so hop into the gutter babe and we can make it two
we got desire
i’ll be a one man chamber of commerce
a golden scepter in my hand
and i don’t care what the theater marquee says
that i can’t take it with me i can

drank about a half a cup of bourbon this morning
from a dancing disney princess’ tea
set i’ve gotta feeling it’s a sure thing
i’m gonna be on my feet
i bought a lottery ticket cuz i’m optimistic

whosayboughtalotteryticketI’moptimistic!

strung like a skinny young bean
barking like a hound and causing a scene like at a drive-in
monster movie
where everybody knows what’s on the other side but me
i'm just green

and you could be the mother of all earth’s envy
and i’m the proud papa standing tall
and we could feed the baby on severed heart strings
for my lottery ticket I crawl

drank about a half a cup of bourbon this morning
from a dancing disney princess’ tea
set i’ve gotta feeling it’s a sure thing
i’m gonna be on my feet
i bought a lottery ticket cuz i'm optimistic

whosayboughtalotteryticketI’moptimistic!

Toys And Tiny Instruments is a 7-piece experimental folk rock band that has a self explanatory name. High energy shows, plus quirky and catchy songs make this band a must see.

"I wanted to book bands I thought would make people stop and say "hey what is this?" and then say "whoa this is great" Toys And Tiny Instruments was one of the first groups I thought of. "
