No one else will take my load
So I will
Everyone is laughing, baby.
And everyone is patting their own backs
But every stone and every stick
And every bone
And every half-hearted
But at least half-attempted half-truth
Will come back to stand with you
When you're alone
There is one thing I forgot to tell you
There is one thing I forgot to say
But if I have the guts to say it
I'm afraid the place where we go to get lost
Would get lost
And so I'm walking down the road
I'm crying, baby
I walked all the way to Whitby
People honk at me.
I shake my fist, sometimes give them the finger
I don't know why I always lie to you
Barkis always tells the truth
Barkis never lies.
Barkis is always willing
Will you marry me awhile?
