mother once i awoke as an old man. my name was stanley forbes and i threw tin cans at everyone who passed my porch. i dont know why i did but i didnt throw them at the kids so i was a good guy

i remember yellin hi
too loo rye
its the day before i die
so why
too loo rye
cause everybody is walking by? oh hi
too loo rye
its the day before i die
and i wanna sigh and cry
alongside my brothers

mother once i awoke, as a squirrel and i jumped from tree to tree to tree to tree, it was me at the acme of my career. i saved all i caught that year, which is a lot of acorns let me tell you. i was very resourceful and

i cried
too loo rye
this is how it feels to fly so high
too loo rye
this aint nothing cash could buy oh hi
too loo lyre
tomorrow i could die
so im gonna climb the pines and have mself a time

mother i dreamt i died last night. see i was a lightbulb, left on a little too long and burned till i was dead with a hundred good ideas in my head but i forgot 'em all and they tried to throw me away. but hey when they grabbed a hold of me they all would burn their hands and see that i was still quite hot with thought and so a little thought they got that they should keep me as a kind of warmth you cant get from a stove or hearth. so i sought and thought and frought and fought but then cooled down and said

oh hi
too loo rye
to think i had a light inside when i try
too loo rye
to remember what i wanted to find so sigh
too loo rye
i thought that i had died

but i think tonight i've got it right, im stanley and the squirrel the invisible light, im a lover liar, humble fire, im a little spider and a chicken on the wire climbin tryin sighin cryin laughin highfivin slowly dyin

but i swear now thats alright, yeah i swear now thats alright, mother im alright
