Lumpy Gravy I lyrics

The way I see it, barry, this should be a dynamite show.


Surf music
Bit of nostalga for the old folks

Im advocating dark clothes
If Im not alone
How long have I been asleep
As long as I have
Did you ever live in a drum?
Well then you arent me
I only dreamed I lived in a drum
Ever since it got dark
Dreaming is hard
Yea, but with nothing over your head?
No just light over my head and underneath too
I dont think I could take it without anything over my head
M-m - ? ? ?
Well why dont you go out and see whats out there?
Well I dont know if thats whats out there.
Thats a thought, if youd like
Yes but still you can say darker and darker
I dont know what the outside of this thing looks like at all
I knew its dark and murky
How do you get your water so dark?
Cause Im paranoid
Im very paranoid and the water in my washing machine turns dark out
Of sympathy
Out of sympathy?
Um where can I get that?
At your local drug store
How much?
Its from kansas

Dixieland music

Bored out .90 over with 3 strong burt 97ths

Car dialogue
Almost chinese huh yeah.
Good bread, cause I was making um $2.71 an hour
I keep switching girls all the time because if Im able to find a girl with really a groovy car that I can build up, man, Ill go steady with her for awhile until I can build up her car and blow
The engine.
