lyrics

you were so fucked to me i couldn’t wait to let you leave
even though i love you forever, you’ll get no reprieve
twice around the block by now, nothing to show but my feet are sore
anything you say to me i swear ny now i’ve heard it all before

i’ve seen a goat, your words don’t mean that much to me
i’ve seen a goat, your words don’t mean that much to me

if i would see you now it’d probably only make me sad
but if you’re doing well, it’d probably just make me mad
if i got off that train, you’d probably lookthe other way
this is one situation where we both lose either way

but i’ve seen your eyes, what i had been to youis gone
and i’d seen your soul, what you had meant to me is gone


grandpa can’t be bothered to see your latest distraction
what keeps you occupied, diversion is the great attraction
why should i leave the farm to be annoyed by the crowds
with all those people talking, venting their stupid thoughts aloud

i’ve seen a goat, the fair don’t mean that much to me
i’ve seen a goat, your words don’t mean that much to me
i’ve seen a goat, your life don’t mean that much to me
i’ve seen a goat
