"Strange" as written by Fred B. Burch and Mel Tillis....
Why's everybody actin' funny?
Why's everybody look so strange?
Why's everybody look so nasty?
What do I want with all these things?

I went alone down to the drugstore
I went in back and took a Coke
I stood in line and ate my Twinkies
I stood in line, I had to wait

Why's everybody actin' funny?
Why's everybody look so strange?
Why's everybody look so pretty?
What do I want with all these things?

I went alone down to the drugstore
I went in back and took a Coke
I stood in line and ate my Twinkies
I stood in line, I had to wait

    General CommentThe best song ever written about wandering round a superstore while completely off your face on acid.

    General CommentOh man, I guess it's about walking around a drugstore, but...

    This song has the most beautiful words about being a kid on the inside. I first thought the words were "why's everybody think I'm pretty? what do I want with all these things?" as if he is curious and oblivious as to all the reasons people like him and act so cryptic around him, when he's just tryna eat a twinkie.
