Misheard Lyrics:
About this planet there is something I know.
There's a very big difference between above and below.
A friend or a bro, there's a bounty on the floor.
Let you your seal fly a away like the soul of a 'fro.
Here above land and man here's bland, and yes it doesn't croox the Ku Klux Klan.
We got a government so twisted and bent,
Bombs, thangs and guns that's how our money is spent.
We got pee-pee heroin, greed and prostitution.
Tension, aggravation, L. Ron Hubbard solution.
Not to mention agricultural pollution.
If you think a different way, you're in a mental institution, and that's a heartfelt shame,
'Cause everyone's crazy, everyone's the same, so why's there only Mary, Paul, and Moby to blame?
Original Lyrics:
About this planet there is something I know.
There's a very big difference between above and below.
A friend, foe, or bro, leave your body on the floor.
Let your spirit fly away like the soul of a crow.
Here above land, man's laid his plan and yes it does include the Ku Klux Klan.
We got a government so twisted and bent.
Bombs, tanks and guns, that's how our money is spent.
We've got V.D., heroin, greed and prostitution.
Tension, aggravation, L. Ron Hubbard solution.
Not to mention hard-core chemical pollution.
If you think a different way you're in a mental institution, and that's a heartfelt shame.
'Cause everyone's crazy, everyone's the same, so why should only Larry, Curly and Moe be to blame?
