Messed Up Munchkin
Hello Operator can you please direct me to the Yellow Brook Road?
I seemed to have lost my sanity somewhere on the path....
And now funny people dressed in white coats are rip roaring down the streets...
Chasing after me....
I just know they are coming....they are coming Operator
To take me away today! ! !
To some sorta farm....where pink elephants prance around the room
And big, giant purple dinosoars sing of dysfunctional familes,
And they LOVE ME.....there really LOVE Me there! !
Hehe...HaHa...there on the farm,
The funny farm of love...
White coats and I got a new jacket
It has many strings and warps around me, protecting me from...
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum
Smokin' weed and drinkin rum,
Alice as a Bunny hop, over there in that shop...
Bert and Ernie cannot wait for the next school bus
As they are late....late...
Cause it's too late baby now, it's too late
Though we really did try to make it to silent Knights in white satan,
Never reaching...never reaching....busted up Knights,
Broken paper bag Princesses.
And it's all ok...really it is
On the farm...that funny farm with pink elephants...
Because they're coming.....for you next...
