lyrics

There once was a man who lived in the forest
he saved all of your forgotten porridge
he lived at the beach at the end of the block
where the other irish kids keep their kids in hock
when all the other kids at the edge of coast
would keep their dads away with a taste of the ghost
they've never ate their cheese just a piece of the hock
when all the other bread went bad on the block

they
turned
brown
(say what you want)

LA LA LA La la la lala lalla la la lalla lalla la la lalla la la lal la
LA LA LA La la la lala lalla la la lalla lalla la la lalla la la lal la
LA LA LA La la la lala lalla la la lalla lalla la la lalla la la lal la
LA LA LA La la la lala lalla la la lalla lalla la la lalla la la lal la

NO ONE ever could tell him what to do
because he was a self made man like you
he lived with the figs and he fucked with the shit
never taking anyone's angry spit
he burned at their lies and he never complained
he didnt wanna be left alone insane
he dabbled with the truth and he never let go
unlike anyone else that we know

lay down

if you wanna end up in peanut buttah

lay down
one of these things is not like the other

they
turned
brown
(say what you want)


LA LA LA La la la lala lalla la la lalla lalla la la lalla la la lal la
LA LA LA La la la lala lalla la la lalla lalla la la lalla la la lal la
LA LA LA La la la lala lalla la la lalla lalla la la lalla la la lal la
LA LA LA La la la lala lalla la la lalla lalla la la lalla la la lal la

I don't need to hurt your feelings

LA LA LA La la la lala lalla la la lalla lalla la la lalla la la lal la
LA LA LA La la la lala lalla la la lalla lalla la la lalla la la lal la
LA LA LA La la la lala lalla la la lalla lalla la la lalla la la lal la
LA LA LA La la la lala lalla la la lalla lalla la la lalla la la lal la

Poppy, punky, garagey but not "Pop Punk Garage" cuz that's embarrassing.

honesty can be really funny without having to try to be comedy if what you're saying makes you vulnerable or breaks an expectation people have for you ... more
