Pixies - Watch What You're Doing
[DAGMENU] Mozilla [4AD]
  Mama killed a chicken, thought it was a duck
  Put him on the table with his feet sticking up
  Papa broke his glasses when he fell down drunk
  Tried to drown the kitty cat, turned out to be a skunk

  You gotta watch what you're doing, didn't you know
  You gotta watch where you're going, didn't you know

  Little Joe Billy went fishing for trout
  Played hooky from school until the cops found out
  Didn't have a father, was an only child
  His mama never beat him, so he grew up wild

  I knew a girl, sweet as can be
  But she fell for a man like a chain saw a tree
  She listen to his lies, fooled by his charms
  Now she's sitting with a baby in her arms

  Well everything's fine, until things get bad
  Then you sit around thinking about the good times you had
  Well it ain't no good to live a life of sin
  If you don't shape up, you know you'll never get in

  Some folks smile, they seem all right,
  But you find out later they were an angel of light
  Try to love everybody, but don't be blind
  Because some kind of people try to mess your mind

  Some folks say that the good lord is dead
  That he doesn't exists, he's inside your head
  I wonder how many gonna be surprised
  When they look straight up
  And see him coming through the skies

		Larry Norman

Believed to be the 18th song on The Purple Tape but the song was never released.

"We did three days in a row, working twenty-four hours a day to save money. We recorded seventeen songs (eighteen if one counts the secret one I have stashed away!)" - Gary Smith in Rock A My Soul #1

The song was taken from a 1977 album by Larry Norman, a Christian folk singer who Charles (Black Francis) saw perform at summer camp when he was 13.
