(doug) You told yourself something funny the other day
You said you can make you laugh
How can that be in your solid state
How can that be in your solid state
Don't say no
Just say you don't know
No don't say no
Just say you don't know
How can that be in your solid state
As you make it unreal
I'm reeling around the fountain
I'm reeling around the fountain
I still confide in you almost everyday
Even though you're not around
How can that be in your solid state
How can that be in your solid state
Don't say no
Just say you don't know
I'm reeling around the fountain

(calvin) Fill me up to the brim
And then learn to dance my hymn
Pull me apart limb by limb
Limb by limb
wrestle that bull heart from the grass
Pack my head and make it last
Do a little dance on the kitchen table
Rub your tummy and kill your navel
big city mouse with the factory wife
Do a little dance with the carving knife
Rub your tummy and stand apart
Negotiate a full service apple cart
All the others are cutting their hair
You keep it long and let them stare
Rub your tummy at the county fair
Innie, outie I don't care
Dosido to the head of the class
dosido to the head of the class
dosido to the head of the class
Virginia reel come around the mountain
Virginia reel around the mountain
Your savage
Your savage
Your savage cabbage leaf
Your savage cabbage leaf
Your savage
Your savage
Your savage cabbage leaf
Your savage
You're savage
riding in a steel rain (range?)
Simmering erasers in the passing lane
Shape of your navel is preordained
Antelope roaming through the bullet train
Throw a curve ball through my mask
...(?) black wooden Baseball bat
Here come the bunnies drinking sugar water
Do a little dance with the farmer's daughter
clear the room with a difficult task
Recite haiku Step on the gas
big city mouse with a hell of a mortgage
Wipe your tummy and crank up the orange
do a little dance with the carving knife
wipe up the floor with my Civil rights
Pull me apart make me pay
Innie, outie whatever you say
Virginia reel come around the mountain
Virginia reel around the fountain 
Virginia reel as savage as you feel
