"Raisins" as written by and Ed Robertson....
Raisins come from grapes
People come from apes
I come from Canada
I came in first place
In a nonexistent race
To rebuild the Parthenon

The Parthenon's in Greece
Or was it in Grease 2?
I can't keep my movies straight
When I make mistakes
I use a lot of salt
Cause salt makes m'steaks taste great

I don't want to be a bother
But I think the phone's for you

I've got orange pants
I wear them when I dance
But I don't get out that much
You are just too loud
I passed you in a crowd
Thank you and keep in touch

I don't speak Chinese
Not even words like "please,"
"Thank you," or "how are you"
But I can Parle Francais
I parled a bit today
It seemed like the thing to do

I don't want to be a bother
But I think you're in my seat

    General CommentLine number 2 in this song keeps me from letting my kids take this album to their grandma's house to play it for her. :D

    A clever little song. Makes me smile.

    General CommentA simple funny song that makes me think that they had fun while they made it.

    Also, one of the best representations that I can currently think of for how a mind can wander and the thought train between different topics.
