The Lyrics

I was planning on doing something really special for #250 but ended up doing this instead. But it's still worth a look
I can define a lot more words than most
And use a sine to find the shortest way to the west coast
I see a toad, and know just what is inside
If my job was clowning I would feel a lot more pride
I move from place to place and then I place things in a house
And I'm really afraid that I'll throw my back out

I'm hauling oak tables
I'm hauling loads of tables

Although it's tough for me to lift up
I know I must so I can get bucks
It was so dumb to study English
It really was a major slip-up

I'm reading 5 books in the average week
Cause everything else to do just costs too much for me
I can't believe it, lots of brainless ex athletes
From my high school studied business now they make more money than me

And I'm hauling oak tables
Yeah I'm hauling loads of tables

My legs collapsed, I'm laying down, I'm halfway up the stairs
It seems that now I'll stay around I can't go anywhere
Please move this bed far from my head so I won't have to end up dead
All the knowledge in the world is useless cause it won't help with my back

I've fallen, it's painful
I've fallen, it is painful
I've fallen, it's painful
(I can't get up, wish I could get up)
I've fallen, and it's painful
(I can't get up, wish I could get up)
Falling is so painful
(I can't get up, wish I could get up)
Falling is so painful
(I can't get up, wish I could get up)
Falling is so painful

Nice job, now get busy with school so you'll get distracted. Then, of course, the ideas will flow like bodily fluids in a Malcolm Higgins parody--right when you have no time to write them. Good luck.
