I'll Get You High - Liz Phair

(performed at a couple of the shows on the April 1995 solo electric tour)

Saw your car, so I know you're here
It's been such a long time, looking totally weird
But I don't remember why
Pull the trigger and die

What a beautiful day for a drive
Not a cloud left in the sky
Why don't you give me a ride to the studio
I'll get you high
I'll get you high

[sung to the tune of the Flintstones theme:]
Bimbo, meet the bimbo
She's a modern stone-age family
Drowned out, thrown out of Glencoe
She's a face without a history
Now that cat will stay out for the night
Fred gets in a terrifying fight
We all back down and beg him not tonight
Come in the living room and dry your eyes
Dry your eyes

In that old familiar valley
Where I have dumped my heavy load
Mom and Dad sit back in the loveseat
From too much loss, from too much hope

What a beautiful day for a drive
Not a cloud left in the sky
Why don't you give me a ride to the studio
I'll get you high
I'll get you high
