Track Name: HIBISCUS
NOBODY CAN KEEP ME FROM KISSING MY MAN, NO. HANDLE ME LIKE I AM HENNESSEY, GEORGIA AND TENESSEE BOYS AT A PARTY. BUCKSKIN THIN AND SMOKING AGAIN. CHAMOMILE, I'M AT YOUR HEELS. THE WHOLE ROOM STARTS TO BLUSH ROSEHIPS, VISCOUS, AND HIBISCUS. BISCUITS GROWING TOUGH, RISING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GRIDDLE OF THE MORNING WITH NO WARNING. WITH NO WARNING, NOBODY CAN KEEP ME FROM KISSING MY MAN, NO. TAKING ME ALL LIKE I'M MEDCINE, RACHETED REGIMEN. WHEN I'M A SKELETON MY BONES WILL BEND LIKE THE ROPES THAT YOU TIED ME IN. SO ROLL YOURS SLEEVES AND LOSE YOUR RINGS, YOU'RE FINER THAN COCAINE. PUT MY MONEY ON A HORSE AND SAY HIS NAME LIKE A PLAGUE. SWEATING LIKE A GLASS OF MILK, ALL CRATER-EYED AND SOFT AS SILK WHEN YOU HIT ME. WHEN YOU HIT ME, I AIN'T WORRIED 'BOUT YOU BABY. YOU CAN DO JUST ANYTHING YOU PLEASE. YEAH, YOU PLEASE ME. MOVING QUICK AS LIQUOR, YOU ARE SLICKER THAN A LIMOUSINE. NOBODY CAN KEEP ME FROM KISSING MY MAN, NO. PLOWING THE LAND WITH OUR KEROSENE LANTERNS. ALL TANGERINE, STRANGER THAN HALLOWEEN. YOU CALM ME DOWN LIKE A TRIP TO THE SEA.
