Something to know, something to say

What are the lyrics to "Tabby and Lucy" by Boston Spaceships? I believe it's off their final album "Let It Beard".

I couldn't find official lyrics (or even unofficial ones) anywhere, but here's the best transcription I could come up with! (My cred on this is having listened to a lot of Bob Pollard over the years.)

Tabby was gone in your hideaway... Lucy was farthest away
Hey hey hey hey...hey hey...hey
Chuckie was balls and he's always up... Lucy just got out the way
Hey hey hey hey...hey hey...hey hey hey
Something to know, something to say, something to take my blues away
Something to know, something to say, something to take my blues away
Tabby went down in a vortex... Lucy was lost in the mix
Hey hey hey hey...hey hey hey
Chuckie was balls like he always is, Lucy bowed out of the play
Hey hey hey hey...hey hey...hey hey hey
Something to know, something to say, something to take my blues away
Something to know, something to say, something to take my blues away
To teenage with sorrow I loan my ladder and to climb over, but know thy limits...
And to magician who'll grow on top of a tomb...
To this little junkie I bump my uglies and bow down [?] to start over
And to musician who'll blow right out of the room [blue?]
Something to know, something to say, something to take my blues away
Something to know, something to say, something to take my blues away
Something to know, something to say, something to take my blues away
Something to know, something to say, something to take my blues away


And damn, I really oughta have this album, too, I guess.

Hmm. A couple of second thoughts:

It might be Chuckie was balls like he always is... Lucy bowed out of the game.

And it also might be To this little Chuckie I bump my uglies and down [phonetically: rom bee doats?] to start over.

And I think it's A blue musician who'll blow right out of the room.
