The radiation in the ground
Makes a lovely bubbly sound
The men in suits
Who don't eat fruit
Can't comprehend
The one-legged newt
That was caused from disaster
At reactor's core
A meltdown expected
To start a war
Now I bought myself
A lead ascot
It looks good but
I'm startin' to rot

Hey you
With that green glow in your har
I swear I see a tear
In your radiation wear
Somehow it's there

Razorblade boomerangs
And iron hands
Crossbows and hockey pads
Are in demand
Toxic waste
In synthetic place
Can add an eyeball
To your face

Hey you
With that green glow in your hair
I swear I see a tear
In your radiation wear
Somehow it's there

Hey me
You know your gums
Are starting to bleed
I've got some shrink-to-fit
Mutated genes
And some bleak posterity
If they end up like me

I am Humongous..
Everybody knows I own the wasteland
And now may I introduce to you
Benji The Tap-dancing Mutant boy

"Hi I'm Benji
I'm a tap-dancing mutant
I wasn't always like this
I was born a normal boy
But now I live in this world of joy!"

It's Benji from Peoria
Don't drink the water
I implore ya
But his mom and dad
They were exposed
And that's how the neutrons grow

Hey you
With that green glow in your hair
I swear I see a tear
In your radiation wear
Somehow it's there

Hey me
You know your gums
Are starting to bleed
I've got some shrink-to-fit
Mutated genes
And some bleak posterity
If they end up like me

Just walk away...
Just walk away...
There's been too much violence...
Just walk away...

    General CommentI laughed when I watched The Hills Have Eyes too. But it was probably because of the crappy movie.
