Welcome to Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum
Known from coast to coast, like butter and toast.
From headlines to bedlines, from school rooms to pool rooms,
No other place in the contiguous United States
And other environs of the free world.
Welcome.

Can I get a T? T!
And if you hit me with the A-L-L-Y then you'd see why
The hall is here for y'all, whoa
The mini mall is callin us all in.

So kids pack up your mom's car
Back up the Windstar
Kick it in drive and arrive at the mega mart
Slide the side hatch with pride cause your ties match
And booty dooty like your name was Eddie Thatch

WWTHD
We like to kick it at the university
But all work and no play makes us crazy
So we jump in the bumpin SUV
Hit the street with the sweet tunes on one
Do a donut on your momma's front lawn
And sooner than you know it
You found a rock n roll show
At the tizzy hizzy we will be gone

We're in the mini mall
Workin the carnival
We like to play it all
Welcome to Tally Hall

Who's to blame?
The automated players I proclaim
Yellow tied a suave fellow writes
Heterophonic tunes of how love bites
Red, the proud, loud guy we adore
Is my amp too high?
No turn it up more!
So Gray in the back sippin, 'gnac can hear
Knock down the shots like Bill Laimbeer
Send home the locksmith
Green's got the keys to unlock the rock in the act if you please
Now open the case
Give Blue the bass
And jiggle your badiggle all over the place

We're in the mini mall
Workin the carnival
We like to play it all
Welcome to tally hall

We're in the mini mall
Workin the carnival
We like to play it all
Welcome to tally hall

Can I get a click?
Flick off the switch
We'll ignite the night in pitch
Singing songs you like to hear
And the world will disappear
Then we'll be glowin in the dark
Lighting up the park
Revealing that the hall is the place that aims to please
With unpredictable games and antiquities
With collectables so delectable
The unreliable style's undetectable

Like I might rap like an English chap
Take you by the knickers and bum your slap
You didn't think we had the gull?
Well bloody welcome to Tally Hall!

We're stereosonic
We're animatronic
We're rappin with roboelectronicebonics
A quick distraction, a mechanic attraction
Got a penny in your pocket for the slot
Rock

Hey ho, don't you know
It's a good old fashioned puppet show
That's right
Quite the set
We're the marionette quintet

We think we're playing in a band
And we'd love to give you all a hand

We're in the mini mall
Working the carnival
We like to play it all
Welcome to Tally Hall

We think we're playing in a band
And we'd love to give you all a hand

We think we're playing in a band
And we'd love to give you all a hand

We think we're playing in a band
And we'd love to give you all a hand

    "Hit the street with the sweet tunes on
    Do a donut on your momma's front lawn"

    General Commentits not Bill and Beer. Its Bill Laimbeer, a Detroit Pistons basketball player from the early nineties. These guys are from Michigan and they like to watch b-ball. So it should say:
    "So gray in the back sippin, yeah, I can hear
    Knock down the shots like Bill Laimbeer."

    it makes sense too

    General CommentYeah, "knock down the shots like Bill and beer" makes no sense at all.

    This song is really great. Especially the MMMM version. But I'll take what I can get.

    That may be the most amusing thing I've heard in music in awhile.

    General CommentAs for the meaning, they named their band after the mall Tally Hall, in which there is an arcade store called Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum.
