Sausalito Witch Lyrics by Shel Silverstein
I broke into the bank on Sunday, You should see the
They're buildin' the gallows outside my cell. I got 25 minutes
I've got a couple more years on you, baby...that's all. I've
She was dancin' when I seen her, in a Mexican
In the Granville Greyhound station in the lightly drizzlin' rain Sittin'
Now, listen to me, folks... Hear what I say. You got to
Now a friend of mine, way back in Chicago -- You
Beware of lovers, who close their eyes They could be hiding
I'm being eaten by a Boa Constrictor, A Boa Constrictor, A Boa
Many dark and dreary days have gone and passed me
In a pad with no heat, up on Sullivan Street, The
Second Street and Broadway Sittin' in a doorway Head held in his
Oh, the changin' of the seasons It's a pretty thing to
The moon, she is a pretty girl Who lives up in
I'm eatin' cornflakes with sugar and teardops Since the milkman run

Paragraph Lyric
23
Well, she wakes up filled with joy and hope
Immediately checks her horoscope
Find out which side of the bed she should get up on.
Then she calls a seance around the table
Ask Cleopatra and Clark Gable
Whether or not she should
Put her bra with the double-A cup on.

Takes a spin on the ouija board,
Asked the blessings of the lord
As she throws her e-Ching on the ground,
And then she checks her hand to see
If while she was sleeping mysteriously
Somebody snuck in changed her life line all around.

And I looked out her window at the Sausalito Bay...
Plane flying low over Gate Five, and I missed it.
Well, I should be in Chicago now,
But I stayed one extra day,
And Sausalito Witch has got me twisted.
Got me twisted.

She wears a Star of David
And a crucifix.
And she's only turned occasional tricks
To pay the rent till I come along to save her.
Start lickin' my toes
And when I groan, she says
"Go away". She wants to be alone
With a cold bottle that a guru gave her.

She says she ain't loved nuthin'
Since she lost a copy of 'The Little Prince'
And that rumor about her and her grilfriend,
There ain't nuthin to it.
But she only makes love on September 22
And the belle of the dance
The night she beckons
And she reckons that it'll be another year
Before we have a chance to do it.

And the houseboat keeps on rockin' on Sausalito Bay
A plane flying over Gate Five
And I missed it.
Well, I should be in Chicago now,
But I stayed one extra day.
And Sausalito Witch has got me twisted.
Got me twisted.

She's a natural girl.
She's got a natural look.
She eats nature foods.
She got natural needs
Like a little early-morning wake-up speed,
And if you got a little bit a smack,
She just might try it.
Then she smokes some shit
But that's all right.
That's just to help her appetite.
And that Dex she took that's just to help her diet.
Well, she dropped some acid to free her soul
Takes Enovid for birthcontrol
Teriomyacin for her non-specific
She snorts some coke to help her ball
And goes to sleep with Seconol
And then tells me, "Ain't this natural life terrific?"

And the houseboat keeps on rockin'
On Sausalito Bay.
A plane flying over Gate Five
And I missed it.
Well, I should be in Chicago,
But I stayed one extra day.
And Sausalito Witch has got me twisted.
Say, Sausalito Witch has got me twisted.
Sausalito Witch has got me turned around
And talkin' to my elbow.... [fade]
