The Lyrics

ESL: English as Second Language; lutra: genus that includes some members of the otter family; castor: genus of the beaver
Mindy Brown, you've got a lovely otter.
Curls are parted in its lustrous hair.
But I'm sad, it will not love me now;
It's made it clear emough there's no room for my pine.

Why does it now spurn the thing I offer--
Tell me to stay out of its domain?
Things have changed; it will not love me now
It's made it clear emough my wood has been declined.

Wanting the snout is my water spout, welled
Pool. . .sticking out, craves a poke, stands so proud.

It's behind blinds; I can't even see it (I can't see it).
Nonetheless I'm swelled, rememb'ring times (member times).
Please let up, won't you open the part?
I'll even get on knees and stow the wood and dine.

Noshing about, eatin' engine mounts, yell
Tool's sticking out, takes a poke. . .squeal's so loud.

I was blind to Yankee slang; I see it (now I see it)--
I had used the wrong term all the time (all the time).
I'm ESL. . .broken English, depart!
There's another swimmer below the water line!

Mindy Brown, I spoke of genus lutra (genus lutra)
Mindy Brown, I'm a dope--I meant castor (I meant castor)
Mindy Brown, I've got some terms to master (terms to master)
Mindy Brown, may I now oil your castor (oil your castor)?

If the president was half as clever, and prolific, as you are, Mr. Barry, the U.S. would be a better, and funnier place to live in.High 5's
