Lyrics

The Tongue of Sorry Punishment.
It just flaps and flaps so we all hear.
The Tongue of Sorry Punishment.

Did you know it’s not a blow-hard?
It really means just what it says.
Did you know it’s not a blow-hard?
That Tongue of Sorry Punishment.
That Tongue of Sorry Punishment!

I have heard that when it appeared
hovering above our skies.
That people
quaked in fear and
then averted their eyes!

That tongue!
That Tongue of Sorry Punishment.
It hung from the sky
until we did all go
and see what it wanted.

It wanted to keep us all.
We went to see what it wanted.
What it wanted wasn’t small.
That Tongue of Sorry Punishment!

All it wanted, yes, was to punish us!
A being from somewhere else,
gone to get its kicks with us.
That Tongue of Sorry Punishment.

Did you know that they’re thinking
of attacking it some day?
The guys at the bar are thinking,
that it won’t be always its day.

And still, when that tongue, it
sniffs around with its mouth so wide,
and still that tongue it
inflicts its punishment.

And for what? And for what?
We have not spoken, yet.
And for what? And for what?
We’re not quite sure yet.

That Tongue of Sorry Punishment.
