Hot Mess
Lyrics by Shoes

Composed by Murphy/Klebe/Murphy


She’s got good motor skills
When she’s stuffed to the gills
So honey say what you will

She’s no stranger to pain
She sleeps in the rain
‘Cause she’s got nothin’ to gain

Ooh she’s a hot mess
Been tryin’ to pin her down
Such a hot mess
She’s bound to be makin’ rounds

She’s a hot mess

She does her personal best
With stains on her dress
She’s a reliable wreck

She’s been payin’ her dues
With her skanky tattoos
And her sensible shoes


She lets her juices flow
When she’s layin’ low
Cuz that’s how she rolls

She’s got a lopsided grin
When she don’t know where she’s been
She’s my possible kin


She comes across as a man
With her spray-on tan
But she don’t give a damn

She wears her hair in a bun
When she gets the job done
She takes no shit from no one


She’s a hot mess
Couldn’t care less
Makes a hot mess


John: lead vocal, bass, handclaps

Jeff: vocals, electric and acoustic guitars (includes lead), handclaps

Rent a cat


We brought a rescue kitten home on Saturday. She is adorable. As mentioned in the post just below this one, our dog was not appreciative of the new critter in the house. Morgan, who we had previously decided is part feline, due to her love of leaping onto narrow railings, looked like she was possessed whenever presented with the cat. You know how they always show demons on TVs and movies – with their eyes all black and unblinking? That was Morgan. It was kinda scary. (I’d read how there are some dogs who are too prey driven to deal with cats – that would be Morgan apparently.) Kitten is being returned to the rescue group today. She’s 9 weeks old and so freaking cute she’ll be in a new home before the week is out.

So, basically, I rented a cat for the weekend.
