(ambiguity your) bread and butter
(always bringing home the) bacon
milk (it for as long as you can)
(it’s your money and your) life
(don’t let them know your) secret
(that you are completely) bananas
(years ago you went entirely) nuts
(so now you’re absolutely) crackers
(once so full of piss and) vinegar
(ink soaked up like dirty) diapers
(only vinegar left so) soft and dri
(it left you like your) teen spirit
(cleaned you out your) pride and joy
(they can’t know you’re out of) juice
I can’t believe it’s not butter (either)
(but keep churning, you need the) bread
