Karpet King
Written by C. Collingwood / A. Schlesinger


From the Fountains of Wayne album Out-Of-State Plates

Gold sun-glasses and a wandering eye
He looks like he's wearing a cheap disguise
But it's real
Don't you know how it feels

He goes to work and he scares the hell
Out of all the girls down in Oradell
What a deal
Don't you know how it feels

Lay it down, lay it down 
You've got to cover a lot of ground
Lay it down, lay it down 
Karpet King
Karpet King

Half a drink and he's out of his head
He puts the boys back into their beds
And he's free 
That's the way it should be

Out every night with the girl of his dreams
He knows it'll never be quite what it seems
To be
Don't you want hell to be

Lay it down, lay it down 
You've got to cover a lot of ground
Lay it down, lay it down 
Karpet King

Lay it down, lay it down, lay it down 
Lay it down, lay it down, lay it down 
Lay it down, lay it down, lay it down 

Lay it down, lay it down, lay it down 
Lay it down, lay it down, lay it down 
Lay it down, lay it down, lay it down

(repeat and fade)
