  • Pixies – Tenement Song lyrics

    [Verse 1: Frank Black]
    The drum sticks were his treasure trove
    Found in the ashes of the coconut grove

    [Pre-Chorus 1: Frank Black, backed by Paz Lenchantin]
    Hey man, can you give me something
    Hey man, did you give me something
    Hey man, nothing comes from nothing
    Hey man, something came from somewhere
    [Chorus: Frank Black, backed by Paz Lenchantin]
    Hey man, it’s a tenement song
    Just there on the tip of your tongue
    Let’s play on a tenement song
    On and on and on

    [Interlude: Paz Lenchantin]
    Tenement song
    Tenement song

    [Verse 2: Frank Black, backed by Paz Lenchantin]
    Tall model and one more smoke
    Tenement Song
    She lived through the fire but the kennel got broke
    Tenement Song

    [Pre-Chorus: Frank Black, backed by Paz Lenchantin]
    Hey man, can you give me something
    Hey man, did you give me something

    [Chorus: Frank Black, backed by Paz Lenchantin]
    Hey man, it’s a tenement song
    Just there on the tip of your tongue
    Let’s play on a tenement song
    On and on and on

    [Solo]

    [Chorus: Frank Black, backed by Paz Lenchantin]
    Hey man it’s a tenement song
    Just there on the tip of your tongue
    Let’s play on a tenement song
    On and on and on

    [Outro: Paz Lenchantin]
    On and on and on
