Lyrics

Spoken Track before track 1

Hello, hello.

1. My Car Song

This is my car song.
It's a car I'm singing while I'm driving.
This is my car, car song.
I'm driving this song all around.

Driving it here and driving it there.
I'm driving my little song.
You might think it might make more sense
to sing a song and drive a car.

But sense can go screw itself
right in the ear.
Sense can go screw itself.
I don't want it to appear.

So I shall sing this car
and drive this song all day.
So I shall sing this car
and drive this song while I play!

Spoken between track 1 and 2

(I like to play songs, you hear.)

2. I like to play songs

I like to play songs.
I like to sing songs.

I like song, song, songs.
I like to play songs.
I like to sing songs.
I like my songs.

I like the great, big, big songs.
I like the little quiet songs.
I like the great big songs.

And I like to sing my songs.
Have you considered a really big song.
A really big song for those great, big, big, big ears.
Have you considered a really tiny song
a song that practically totally disappear.

I would like to sing a song
a great big song,
a lovely song.

I would like to sing a song
a lovely song for you.
Have you considered a slightly bigger song?
Because you're slightly bigger now, ow, ow.

Have you considered
a just right sized, sized song?
A just right size because you're so
perfect in my ears!

I would like to sing a song,
a lovely song, a happy song.
I would like to sing a song
and this is what appears.

Spoken between track 2 and 3

(I like to sing songs.)
(I also like...)

3. Perfect pickle song

Have you ever eaten a pickle?
A really perfect pickle.
This is my perfect pickle song!
This is my perfect pickle song.

I would like that pickle.
The one that appears in my dreams at night!
I would like to taste that pickle!
And with it scream with delight!

This is my pickle song!
My lovely pickle song.
This is my pickle song!
And it has appeared.

Spoken between track 3 and 4

(I think I repeated myself.)
(I do not like to do that.)
(What I do like is...)

4. Lovely chocolate

Bring me some chocolate!
Some lovely chocolate!
I like some chocolate for my mouth!

My feet don't like that chocolate none.
Don't bring them some chocolate boots.

My mouth it likes the chocolate!
Shovel it on here.
My mouth it likes the chocolate, yes.
Chocolate is a dear.

Spoken between track 4 and 5

(I think I'm falling in to a rut.)

5. Ruh, roh. It's a rut.

Rut, rut, rut! Rut, rut, rut!
This is a rut, rut, rut, rut, rut!
Rut, rut, rut! Rut, rut, rut!
And I am stuck in it!

This is a little rut, rut, rut, rut song!
This is song about being stuck!
This is a little rut, rut, rut, rut song!
This is my song about being stuck!

Rut, rut, rut, rut, rut, rut song!
Ruh, roh, a rut-rut song!
Rut, rut, rut, rut, rut, rut song!
Ruh, roh! It's ruts!

Spoken between track 5 and 6

(That kind of embraced the issue.
And didn't solve it at all.)
(Perhaps what I really need is...)

6. That Neurologist

Have you considered
getting yourself a
neurology appointment?
Perhaps your head
it is not on right.

Have you considered
you might need a
neurology appointment?
And that neurologist
is just out of sight.

He's hiding in his building!
He's hiding in his dwelling!
He's hiding in his building!
Fearing for his mind!
He's hiding in that building!
We won't kill him.
We just want to share
his mind about our minds.

Do you need a neurologist?
A really fine neurologist.
Do you need a neurologist
to help you with your mind?
That neurologist has appointments.
He's really very popular!
That neurologist has appointments!
And they're all on my mind!

That neurologist is cool!
That neurologist is neat!
That neurologist will help you
to get back on our feet!
That neurologist is fine.
But why's he hiding there?
I don't think he wants to see me.

Spoken between track 6 and 7

(Perhaps that's because...)

7. Should've bathed better

I should have bathed in something
other than poop!
I should have bathed in something
that does not stink like poop!

I've bathed in poop, you see,
I thought it was chocolate.
You probably shouldn't bathe in chocolate either, you know.

How did you know that
it was poop?
I tried to smell it, but
my nose flew the coop!

My nose it don't work and I'm covered in poop.
At least that's what they tell me I smell like today.
I would like to smell things.
Preferably when I'm not covered with poop.
I would like to smell things.

Perhaps my nose could use a Roto-Rooter®!
You know they use Roto-Rooters on poop, poop, poop, poop, poop!
You know they use Roto-Rooters in toilets, too!
Perhaps my nose could use one! Stretch it all out!
Clean those ducts and clean those pipes and really clean me out.

I would like to smell something cute!
Perhaps a donut would not be rude!
I liked to smell things when I was young.
Perhaps I'll smell things again before I'm done!

Spoken between track 7 and 8

(And, sometimes... Sometimes...)

8. Roundabouts for your Mind

I like to pay attention to to the lights and
not slam in to people.
I like to pay attention to the lights while
I am driving on the road!

These lights there help me go
help me to stay on track.
These lights there they are handy
but don't give them slack.

They do not work as well
as round-abouts you know.
People just blow on through
and smash on their toes.

Round-abouts may seem dangerous, but
all intersections are.
Round-abouts may be scary,
but you should be scared!

Those round-abouts they go round about
and they force you to pay attention!
Those round-abouts go all round about
and they help you get to your destination!

Have you ever thought of round-abouts for your mind?
Perhaps the neurologist could help you to unwind!
Round-abouts for your mind to
help you turn around.

Round-abouts in your mind
to not get distracted!
Round-abouts in your mind
don't just go in circles.
Round-abouts for your mind
they really are swell!

Spoken between track 8 and 9

(Sometimes, sometimes what I need is...)

9. Grocery Store

Please go to the grocery store!
Please go to the grocery!
You need food! Yes it's true!
Food for me and food for you.

Go to the grocery and get yourself some food.
They have lots of food
in the grocery store!

I've been there once or twice before.
They have lots of food at
the grocery store.
and it is sometimes affordable.

I like to eat my food!
Lots of yummy food!
And I buy it there
at grocery stores!

I buy it there!
And sometimes next-door!
I like that grocery store it is so swell.
I like that grocery and I pay the bill.

10. Happy Streets

I am turning on to this street.
Turning on this street.
This street here is really neat.
This street, street here it
said I was sweet!

Have you ever found a street,
a lovely street made from old meat.
Have you ever found a street,
made of happy people.

It's a happy street! It's a happy street!
You know it because it's made of happy people!
Happy street! It goes somewhere really neat!
It goes to the liquor store!

The liquor store is just down the street.
The street is not made of happy feet. (cough)
This street there is made of happy people.
But their feet are heading that way.

Spoken after track 10

(I got all choked up with that song.
Too much happiness!
Exploding from those bodies in the street!
Well, I think that might be the end for me tonight.
I probably need a beverage. Or two. Or five.)

(Just a great, big, licorice-flavored one. What?!
Maybe not licorice. Maybe liquor-flavored.
But! We'll see. We'll see.
Bye-bye for now! Woo-hoo!)
