Yeah, uh huh, lets do it
Damn, it's setting in now
'Cause cartoons are turning into real life
Lemons and limes are fighting
Fighting over straws like they were oil filled pipes
Why's the sun writing the song?
Why is this funny to me?
All of a sudden a mouths' come along
And what he sings, it brings harmony

You may not understand why there's a smile on my face
It's cause this world would be such a wonderful place
If some of these companies in two-thousand three get erased
But not me man, I see a wonderful place (the world's a wonderful place)

[Chorus:]
My soul's in my smile, don't frown
Just get up, get up
My soul's in my smile, don't frown
Just get up, get up
My soul's in my smile, don't frown
Just get up, get up
The wallpapers moving soul's in my smile, don't frown
Just get up, get up

The wallpaper's moving
My arms and my legs leave a blur when I swipe
Sap is just oozing
But trees say that smoke blocks the sun
So for them, it's just night

The seven eyes look in through the clouds
And why is that funny to me?
And here comes the mouse singing loud
And what he sings brings harmony

You may not understand why there's a smile on my face
It's cause this world would be such a wonderful place

[Chorus: Repeat 2X]

(whistling...)

    General CommentCould have been about drugs and their effects, but it's also a feel good song that may not make sense, and that could have been the sober intention.

    General CommentSong about a drug experience, either shrooms or acid since the imagery talks about things you'd see while hallucinating. I mean, in the first line he says "So high". Not to hard to figure out.

    General Commentwhatever an artist does to get their music out of their head isn't relevant..everyone should read the lyrics and realize the message...that LIFE is a wonderful place, just slow down and look at EVERYTHING..if it's not amazing then you better go out there and fix the world.
