First the mic, then a half cigarette
Singing "Cathy's Clown"
That's the man that she's married to now
That's the girl that he takes around town

from Elliott Smith – Waltz #2 Lyrics on Rap Genius


A woman, presumably Smith’s mother, chooses a breakup song with the lyrics “don’t want your love anymore” to serenade her husband (presumably Smith’s stepfather, Charlie, whose name makes appearances in several songs) and the women with whom he is cheating on her.
