The Lyrics

Girl, you thought you'd left you plectrum on the fret of your guitar last night
But when you wake up in the mornin' it's fallen down the hole outta sight
Well, every day you try and get
It staying 'tween the strings and the fret
But when it slides in the acoustic hole
Gets you really upset!!!

(And don't it seem like)
Picks just keep gettin' harder to find
And all your Picks ain't bringin' you peace of mind
(You just need help, girl)
Gonna have to head down to the store, girl
To purchase some more!!

No, but not with picks
You just need help, girl

Well you think you're gonna get yourself a plectrum holder bracelet
But all your picks are stuck down the sideboard on lost in the carpet
No matter what the fancy device
You can't seem to use a plectrum twice
And if you keep on buying'
You'll have to pay a price!!!


No, you don't need Picks
To help you play on your guitar
Just grow your right index fingernail
Then you'll be able to strum whereever you are!!!

Don't know who's 3ing you, dude. Obviously not a fan of my music. This is among the best I've seen today. - January 29, 2005 - Report this comment
Great sub for the title punchline. I'll bet Rick Duncan would appreciate this one. (RAD, YOU THERE?)
