Ballad of Big Nothing Lyrics

Artist: Elliott Smith
Album: Either/Or

throwing candy out to the crowd
dragging down the main
the helpless little thing with the dirty mouth
who's always got something to say
you're sitting around at home now
waiting for your brother to call
i saw him down at the alley
having had enough of it all
said you can do what you want to whenever you want to
you can do what you want to there's no one to stop you
all spit and spite you're up all night and down every day
a tired man with only hours to go just waiting to be taken away
getting in to the back of a car for candy from some stranger
watching the parade with pinpoint eyes full of smoldering anger
you can do what you want to whenever you want to
you can do what you want to there's no one to stop you
now you can do what you want to whenever you want to
do what you want to whenever you want to
do what you want to whenever you want to
though it doesn't mean a thing
big nothing
