St. Vincent performs “Birth in Reverse”

…..Andy Samberg
…..St. Vincent

Andy Samberg: Once again — St. Vincent.

St. Vincent: [ singing ]“Oh, what an ordinary day
Take out the garbage, masturbate
I’m still holding for the laugh.

The dogs will bark, so let them bark
The birds will cry, I let them cry
Here’s my report from the edge.

Like a birth in reverse
What I saw through the blinds
You can say that I’m sane
In phenomenal lies
Oh, the cards make you turn
Then he poured in line
It was a birth in reverse in America.

This, too, will haunt me through the war
Laugh all you want, but I want more
‘Cause what I’m swearing I’ve never sworn before.

Like a birth in reverse
What I saw through the blinds
You can say that I’m sane
In phenomenal lies
Oh, the cards make you turn
Then he poured in line
It was a birth in reverse in America.

Like a birth in reverse
What I saw through the blinds
You can say that I’m sane
In phenomenal lies
Oh, the cards make you turn
Then he poured in line
It was a birth in reverse in America.”
