Gardena
An improvisation by the Big Jerks

 

God I had a splitting headache that morning
I woke up and I thought to myself
Oh, what did I do? What did I do last night?

It must be some kind of guilty pleasure
because I've got one of those guilty hangovers
What did I do? I know it was, it musta been something

What did I do? What did I do? What did I do?
What did I do?

Oh now I remember, Oh now I remember
I was, o god what was I thinking?
o jesus now it's all coming back
I was in a bar, I was watching a dancer
where was the bar? where was that, god my head
I can;t seem to get it clear
it's like my head is a giant glass bubble
with an egg, soft yolk in the bottom
swooshin' around, when I move it
it hurts, o god what'd I do? Jezus

I remember now. I remember now.

I fell in love with a stripper last night.
I fell in love with a beautiful stripper last night.

Oh yeah what was her name? Tiffany.
Tiffany. Tiffany. and I fell in love
she was beautiful

What did I do? What did I do? What did I do?
What did I do?

I fell in love with a stripper at a bar last night.
in Gardena
Maybe I had too much to smoke
now it's all coming back to me, oh yeah
I was with Mark, he's a bad influence, a bad influence,
I was with Mark, he's a bad influence, a bad influence, because

I fell in love with a stripper last night
in Gardena
I fell in love with a stripper last night
in Gardena
I fell in love with a stripper last night
in Gardena
I fell in love with a stripper last night
in Gardena

But you know the guilt is good motivation
You never outgrow it, it's good motivation
if you feel guilty with that guilty hangover
sometimes those are your best days because
you jump outta bed and get things done
and y'pick up the house and something in the back o'your head is tellin' you you got some penence to do because
you were out and up to no good
out in Gardena

I fell in love with a stripper named Tiffany late last night
in Gardena
I fell in love with Tiffany the stripper late last night
in Gardena

She was cute and she was young
and she was gonna put herself thru college
and I fell for it hook line and sinker.
