Bed Number 36

Lying in bed number 36 I'm here cuz I shot and missed Took a chance a risky gamble With my safety and security I lost and lost big Loan sharks are after me Can't decide if it's time to flee Too late to start over Too big a chip on my shoulder Lord I was born a ramblin man Only women ain't sposed to ramble Now what I think as I lay in my bed Next to women that stink of poverty The loan sharks are after me Time to pay up or dead I will be So tired of runnin Gotta keep runnin Don't know why I'm runnin No use really runnin Havin lunch with the mad hatter Only hes the loan shark Can't remember how much I owe He looks mad like hes ready to blow Or maybe that's me I'm the mad hatter Collecting the debts That are owed to me Still lying in bed number 36 Was it worth the risk? Tryin to be tough Only made it more rough I'm runnin runnin runnin But I ain't goin nowhere Stuck on an island where Even the coconuts wont be my friend Alice is calling, Alice, the white girl Calls my name, always calling me to Do the evil deeds she can't do I'm the mad hatter and I'm mad Mad that I'm the mad hatter Mad that Alice keeps calling my name So mad the loan sharks are after me The looking glass in front of me Always looks greener on the other side Only now the goats have eaten all the grass Alice wants me to come over Lying in bed number 36 Maybe I should succumb I feel so numb 1 step 2 steps 3 steps 4 Guess who just walked through the door?
