Lyrics

I want to eat something really sweet
and really yummy, you see.
But I have none and that is sad
so I think I will give a song.

I would like to give you a gift
that you really like, so you see.
But I have no money, no none.
So I just sing of singing songs.

I would like to sing a song
and maybe just one little song
and this good song is not too, too long.
Yes, I would like to sing a song.

I thought you might like my good song.
I thought you would like this good song.
It’s not too long. No, not too long.
And it is my very good song.

I would like to eat a big shoe.
But only a prepared big shoe.
Perhaps your shoe would be just right.
No, it is made of plastic, yuck.

I would like to do something cool
lie sit and wallow in my beer
but I have no beer, and that’s sad
so I think I’ll just write this song.

I thought this song would be like a
tattoo for your ears, don’t you see.
So, it will stick around for a while
at least until surgery.
