Punch and Judy
Elliott Smith Lyrics


A wallflower punch talks to judy
In a crowded corner where anybody can listen in
But they don't read page to page or speak easy
Now they're gonna go say the words
In the wrong order again
They walk in a circle
Through all the sidewalks scenes they used to be apart of one time
Now everybody just stares and whispers
Driving around up and down division street
I used to like it here
It just burns me out to remember
Can't you ever treat anyone nice
I think I'm gonna make the same mistake twice
They draw the curtain
Wait for a call
Pretty lucky if they get any kind of response at all
Can't you ever treat anyone nice
I think I'm gonna make the same mistake twice
I'm gonna make the same mistake twice

But they don't read page to page or speak easy
Now they're gonna go say the words
In the wrong order again

Through all the sidewalk scenes they used to be apart of one time

Can't you ever treat anyone nice?
I think I'm gonna make the same mistake twice
They draw the curtain

Pretty lucky if they get any kind of response at all
Can't you ever treat anyone nice?
I think I'm gonna make the same mistake twice
I'm gonna make the same mistake twice

God this song has grown on me exponentially over the past couple of days. Elliott’s music has an uncanny ability to do that

Kaelyn

I didn't care that much for this song but one day it just clicked. Elliott Smith is amazing.

Suburban Symbolism

Elliott makes everything okay.

Medicate and Ashley

i hear this song in my head when i'm walking alone and wanting to die

nbydalek

I hear this in my head every time I'm sad too

Logan Phelps

Elliott had a way of interpreting feelings in ways that words alone can't explain.

Mike Gusev

same, live right near Division Ave and it pops in every time

RehashedRehab

...this is indeed a phenomenon.
EVERY time I start reminiscing about better times and walking around the city I've lived in my entire life. Elliott's lyrics even better explain the scenes going through my head.
