Song of the Day #4,398: ‘Highly Suspicious’ – My Morning Jacket

My Morning Jacket’s sound could best be described as melancholy psychedlic Southern rock. Most of their songs are one or more of those things, and often all of those things at the same time.

The Kentucky-based band’s 2008 album, Evil Urges, threw fans and critics for a bit of a loop. While about half of its songs sound like typical MMJ fare, it also offered up left-field tracks like today’s SOTD, ‘Highly Suspicious.’

This is a fun song in a deranged sort of way, but I prefer the band’s acoustic, mournful output. I’m all for variety, though, so more power to them.

[Verse 1]
Wasting time home alone dotting your i’s
Peanut butter pudding surprise
Ain’t nobody care what’s going on in your mind
But they got they eye on your prize

[Chorus]
I’m high (Highly suspicious)
Highly suspicious of you (Highly suspicious of you)
I’m high (Highly suspicious)
Highly suspicious of you (Highly suspicious of you)

[Verse 2]
Now, daddy’s got you home alone, solving your crimes
Peanut butter pudding surprise
Ain’t no jokin’, smokin’, strokin’, tapping your lines
Peanut butter pudding surprise

[Chorus]
I’m high (Highly suspicious)
Highly suspicious of you (Highly suspicious of you)
I’m high (Highly suspicious)
Highly suspicious of you (Highly suspicious of you)

[Verse 3]
Wasting all your time on drama
Could be solving real crime
Waste away your mind too
I’m high

[Chorus]
I’m high (Highly suspicious)
Highly suspicious of you (Highly suspicious of you)
I’m high (Highly suspicious)
Highly suspicious of you (Highly suspicious of you)

[Chorus]
I’m high (Highly suspicious)
Highly suspicious of you (Highly suspicious of you)
I’m high (Highly suspicious)
Highly suspicious of you (Highly suspicious of you)

[Outro x2]
Highly suspicious
Highly suspicious of you
Highly suspicious
Highly suspicious of you
