The Lyrics

[party sounds, people yakking]
[drums and clapping]

Ain't that hearty,
Turned it down!
Let's go but not stay 'til dawn.
That is my run-down.

A people mania,
Too much stricture.
See that scene; I can't breathe.
It makes me feel too down.
I'm feeling all that dread,
Fainting, end up in bed.

[chorus]
Declined rally and speaker was just off,
"Don't like that scene anyhow."
I plopped placid ever since fated night,
E'er since I was a wuss and bailed out.
Now they said they understood.

[clap, clap, clap, clap]
[clap, clap, clap, clap]

My flutter kick made me feel sickly.
It's striking me; feel antsy and feel sour.
I say it's bizarre but still I presume
Prey to caprice, just my other mind by the hour.
I enjoy that they wail.
'Cause I'm no longer in that useless jail.

[Chorus]
Declined rally and speaker was just off,
Don't like what I've seen til now.
I propped placid ever since stated night,
E'er since I was a wuss and bailed out.
Now they said they understood.
(..hoood) (...hoood)
Now they said they understood.

- instrumental -

[clap, clap, clap, clap]
[clap, clap, clap, clap]
[clap, clap, clap, clap]
[clap, clap, clap, clap]


This is supposed to be a feast day,
but it's turned into my hurl that is so pukie.
My messages seem so dour,
Because I just gave my message to a flunky.
I would be blurtin' and no visions here of me being so witty.
Well, the majority are, they are singing as they said a ditty.

Declined rally and speaker was just off,
"Don't like that scene anyhow."
I plopped placid ever since fated night,
E'er since I was a wuss and bailed out.
Declined rally and speaker was just off,
Don't like what I've seen til now.
I propped placid ever since stated night,
E'er since I was a wuss and bailed out.

Now they said they understood.(oooo-ooo-ood)(understoood)
Now they said they understood.
