Adult Children we live on styrofoam and plastic and gasoline up to the gills but when petroleum gets costly we petition capitol hill we join the union when we're eighteen and sleep away half of the day but with the Chinese exporting we toss our hands up and complain ichi-kichi-kichi-coo waa-waa ichi-kichi-kichi-ca waa-waa I wanna bottle and a diaper don't wanna face up to the real world boo-hoo we're eating hamburgers and frosties and jelly donuts, too and if we get a little hefty we're gonna lawyer up and sue we get all sniffly and weepy with post traumatic stress nerves we call the therapist, pleading to kiss the booboo where it hurts ichi-kichi-kichi-coo waa-waa ichi-kichi-kichi-ca waa-waa I wanna pluggles and a lamby singing the baby's blues boo-hoo I'm going down, going down, going down, going down into the repressed memories of my childhood my daddy can't make me rake the leaves I wanna play my nintendo! I wanna juice box! no no, daddy, no! we are the latest generation of happy indolent youth we got a house, wife and children but sucking binkies till we're blue ichi-kichi-kichi-coo waa-waa ichi-kichi-kichi-ca waa-waa I wanna bottle and a blankie don't wanna grow up like you ichi-kichi-kichi-coo waa-waa ichi-kichi-kichi-ca waa-waa I wanna bottle and a diaper don't wanna face up to the real world

Henry Kissinger He was a goose-stepping son of a fräulein Until he hooked up with the third reich Then he switched sides and became a GI The doughboy of intelligentsiae Lobbing pineapples and diatribes on the state He was the flowering of evil genius The ends achieved would justify to deceive us Picking fights with slanty-eyed GI Joes Communistas set to be overthrown Brass-balled real politico on the make Henry Kissinger was the president's messenger Throwing his weight down every avenue Henry the riddler was a five star semaphore Riding to war on his republican mule When he reached the inner circle of secrets He betrayed his masonic allegience Sticking pins in hoover's voodoo dolls All the chicks were terribly enthralled With his super-sized mystical balls on display Henry Kissinger was a tight rope walker Threading the needle between lies and truth Heinrich the riddler was a statecraft conjurer Casting his spells all over me and you He wasn't fearful at all Necessarily brash With an ego the size of a whale Don't underestimate the sins of your leaders Or you'll be singing songs of slavery later

Saint Martha 04:11
Saint Martha Saint Martha was heavy in every way Cook a souffle Some calls and some puts would round out her day Saint Martha was bitter as vinaigrette Powerful, yet Without a love she still felt bereft Then one day the desert it bloomed to sunday He would shoot her a glance at her thread count fetish thread count fetish thread count fetish Rich Martha was smoother than Bob Goulet Why did she stray? Turning pastry tricks for an equity play Dead set on her head on a platter flambe' The inquisitors blamed her for thread count fetish thread count fetish thread count fetish Brave Martha would suffer to be alone Took up her throne Her chows by her side thread count fetish thread count fetish thread count fetish
