Back where and when I come from – people banged on hollow tress to have their fun
Hours upon hours, days upon days – dancing and a-singing – that was just their way
Little bitty babies sittin in the dirt – feeling the vibrations ever since their birth
Fine-fine-fine music fine-fine-fine music
And those are our ancestors – and it ain’t so long ago
Now we’re living in the age of the short attention span
All of our songs are 3 minutes long – 3 minute songs – 3 minutes long
It seems that’s all we handle now – 3 minute songs

Just for a gas – sit back and relax. And turn off your TV
If you can sing along with a three minute song – why not try it with a symphony

Now there’s 4 directions – 4 elements and 4 seasons
And 4 kinds of animals: the flyin – the swimmin – the walkin – the crawlin
What for am I tellin you this – because 4 is the magic number
And we’re here walkin around on 2 legs – thinkin we’re something special
