A long ago and what's his name
Yeah, spilled out on the road like a bucket of rain
You know I didn't come to 'cause she knows my mind
It's 'cause she stones my soul a sleep at a time

Lay down your ribbons and bows
And let your hair hang greasy and low, and oh
On a sparkling cushion we lie, it's like
Like a new state of mind
Yeah, it's a new state of mind

She was the newest mama in the shortest skirt
(Hey, ain't askin' her to know my mind)
I promise never again to tell how it hurt
(Your tears are mine)

Yeah, but as my mind goes dancing
While the gin picks the tune
Hitch your ride to my wagon
I'll bring you the moon

Lay down your ribbons and bows
And let your hair hang greasy and low, and oh
On a gift shop cushion we lie
It's like, like a new state of mind
Yeah, it's a new state of mind

Lay down your ribbons and bows
And let your hair hang greasy and low, and oh
On a sparkling cushion we lie
It's like, like a new state of mind
Yeah, it's a new state of mind

Lay down your ribbons and bows
When they beat me down I got a joint where we can go, and oh
On a gift shop cushion we lie
It's like, like a new state of mind
(It's a new state of mind)

Yeah, it's a new state of mind
(It's a new state of mind)
It's a new state of mind
(It's a new state of mind)
It's a new state of mind
