I slit my wrists with my swing line 
Copied myself five hundred times 
I pierced my ears with a 3-hole punch 
Ate twelve dozen donuts for lunch 
But next week I'm a walk, next week I'm a walk: 
And the week after that I'm gonna run. 
I swam in an Olympic-size pool; 
Had a picnic with a ventriloquist 
Saw my brother coming up the hill: 
He wrapped a beach towel round my wrist 
So next week I'm a walk, next week I'm a walk: 
And the week after that I'm gonna run. 
I dumped Surel for an older man; 
Now I'm doing it for Dante. 
Gimme some of that nasty water, 
I'll take it one sip at a time. 
So next week I'm a walk, next week I'm a walk: 
And the week after that I'm gonna run. 
Next week I'm a walk: 
And the week after that I'm gonna run 
On one of those things: 
It's something like a treadmill I think. 
So next week I'm a walk, next week I'm a walk: 
And the week after that I'm gonna run.
