There's a mouse starin' out of the window
His colony's trapped in the snow
He's planning a family vacation
But he just can't go

Around the next corner's a red bird
His feathers are trapped in a sling
He's passed by some mudslinging parrot
Who's jealously ain't got no end

There ain't no time to stash the gumbo
Or rattle around in a cage
The sacrificed child's made bubbles
And spittle is everywhere enraged

In the hot sand I land on my feet
They blister and cake with debris
Chez rolez is guarding the toll port
While Angry piddles with glee

There's a fool writing notes out on sandpaper
He's sending them off to himself
He gets them a couple days later
Who put them along his top shelf

If you get tired of shavings
And carve up a good hunk of wood
Remembering to check on the sausage
He's got cooking somewhere look good

There ain't no time to stash the gumbo
Or rattle around in a cage
The sacrificed child's made bubbles
And spittle is everywhere enraged

In the hot sand I land on my feet
They blister and cake with debris
Chez rolez is guarding the toll port
While Angry piddles with glee

There ain't no time to stash the gumbo
Or rattle around in a cage
The sacrificed child's made bubbles
And spittle is everywhere enraged

In the hot sand I land on my feet
They blister and cake with debris
Chez rolez is guarding the toll port
While Angry piddles with glee

There ain't no time to stash the gumbo
Or rattle around in a cage
The sacrificed child's made bubbles
And spittle is everywhere enraged

In the hot sand I land on my feet
They blister and cake with debris
Chez rolez is guarding the toll port
While Angry piddles with glee
