And then she enters from stage left
I gotta tell her that I love her a lot
But I gotta get a belly full of wine
God help me, unhand me.

I cannot hear my people talk
Little fecker got his hand in his mouth
And this party isn’t over ‘til three
Time passes, have mercy.

And this is people doing things
Get a habit, got to get it on cue
Yes I’m gonna make a habit of you
Now thank me, god bless me
When all the things I said I’d do are done.

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
All of these little things I know
I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go
Get off my wick now I will go
Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay
Spit out that bristle it’s okay
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright
I’ve got this message it’s all right.

And all my faces dealt at once
Let me show you what I’ve done so far
And then you’ll witness what I will do next
I’ll do it, I’ll do it.

And I am holding with two hands
I’m a sailor and I’ve got my sail
I’m a jockey and I’ve got my whip
God bless me, I did it
And all the people doing things are one
And all the battles mean the war is won
And who cares for peace?
