Easy Bake Ovens Lyrics

Easy Bake Ovens - Girlyman

You were throwing your shoes right up over the wire

 

You were rolling out Easy Bake Ovens and tires

Another whole day on the Bucks County plain

Clouds rolling in it's feeling like rain

Back in the yards and the woods by the pool

 

The leaves were on fire when I came home from school

 

Singing a song that I wrote in myself

Singing that I could be something else

You were throwing your shoes right up over the wire

 

I was sitting there watching on half buried tires

Scratching on sidewalks with fingers and stone

Waiting for time feeling alone

Taking out pins in the cushions inside

The rain falling down on the telephone wire

Falling farther and farther away

 

Those were the days of the model airplanes

Shooting up rockets for neighborhood fame

 

You on the ground the remote in your hand

I was sinking on down my feet in the sand

The rock and roll babysitter's tales

 

Of nights with the boys running off of the rails

They'd spend the whole night on abandoned farms

Burning up in each other's arms

You were throwing your shoes right up over the wire

You were setting those Easy Bake Ovens on fire

I was carving my name on a chalkboard with nails

Waiting for somebody else to be there

Outside the dim suburban homes

With their lawns full of ashtrays and their buckets of phones

Ringing off mothers in houses all day

 

Back then we had to be cool

 

But nobody taught me the rules

 

And so I just wrote it all down

 

On the inside of my fast food paperboard crown

Riding bikes before I learned about brakes

Around and around those culdesac lanes

The teens rolling by in their giant green cars

Driving like rain they were kissing like stars

You were throwing your shoes right up over the wire

You were building those tinkertoy castle empires

Melting your crayons over tables of flame

I was feeling alone I was feeling insane

Dad took a picture on August the nine

Of us with the newspaper and the headline

 

Ford steps up Nixon Resigns'
