lyrics

said the first king of the nation from the last kingly starlite station to the third queen of the sun
i believe i'm sinkin'
on that last train to cracksville get that monkey off my track
we get plastered until daybreak and i believe he won't get back
ahh dilbert's crown of thorns
could be dressed in rows of jolly colored bows and still feel bad
in that confrontation with god he surmised
all the love and wisdom that shown in those eyes but his platform shoes were full up with sorrow and he believed there was no tomorrow
so he stuck out his thumb, hitched off his wife traded his babies and painted his bike
the colors of gloom he knew all too well
and i believe that he took his life
ahh dilbert's crown of thorns feels bad you're bad
as the candy colored clown pulled on his bulb he danced the watusi till the girls were full with a sly grin and tip of the hat
i believe and a rat a tat tat
said the first king of the nation from the last kingly starlite station to the third queen of the sun
i believe i'm sinkin'
ahh dilbert's crown of thorns
could be dressed in rows of candy colored bows and still feel bad ahh ha ha ha ha...
