It’s the time of the year
When everything gets close
stand in front of the mirror
Can’t get past your nose

And you could cry enough tears
To fill a French bathtub
And when your makeup smears

It’s porceline stains
Porceline stains

Making you not feel so tough

Yeah it’s that time of the year
When everything gets tight
And as you’re trying to steer
It all just leans to the right

And you can blow enough signs
To get the ticket to jail
And when they give you your fine

You’re standing in line
Standing in line

Wishing you’d really get nailed

It’s that time of the year
When everything is a wreck
And everything that appears
Reaching out for your neck

And you can’t hide anywhere
Everything’s exposed
Just when you started to care

Everyone stares
Everyone stares

Standing there without your clothes
