Lab Rat Blues is the 12th song on The Mountain Goats' second cassette, The Hound Chronicles. Nothing Painted Blue, Franklin Bruno's band, recorded a version of it on their 1993 single Sorely Tempted (and later re-released it on their 1997 rarities compilation Emotional Discipline).

LyricsEdit

I saw you. I saw your hair
I could spend the rest of my life in there

I saw you and I sank into your eyes
I'm not going to apologize

Because you with your own hands
Made the whole world
You can't fool me
I'm on to you now

Because you with your own hands 
Created everything
You can't fool me
I'm on to you now

Yeah, I saw you, but you saw me first
Living water to quench my thirst
And you tell me quiet down
But I have no doubt
I know what you're all about

Because you, with your own hands 
Made the whole world
You can't fool me
I'm on to you now

Because you, with your own hands
Created everything
You can't fool me any more
I'm on to you now
