The Lyrics

Silas is my 5,000 lb imaginary friend. Say "Hi" to him, or he'll sit on you! Enjoy...
Hello Silas, my old friend
I've come to play with you again
Even though you're 50 times my size
And I cannot see your squinty eyes
Because of, all the flaps of skin in the way
I am afraid
Oh, of the pounds of Silas

In daydreams I was alone
Until you came all fat and blown
I thought that I had seen a brand new God
A God bigger than all of Cape Cod
But it wasn't, it was just the same fat old you
You silly-poo
So came the pounds of Silas

And we played all through the night
I hoped that we would never fight
'Cause if we did than you would kick my ass
Squeeze me between you and the fields of grass
And my body would become, nothing but some gooey mush
What a rush
Under the pounds of Silas

Dudes I said that you don't know
Silas like a cancer grows
He grows and grows and grows and grows some more
Until he's twice the size as the day before
And the birds, like big old scaredy-cats
Ran away
Oh, from the pounds of Silas

He is so big, he cannot hide
Killing him is genocide
Because the fact that he's so goddamn large
He drinks his water from a 20 foot barge
And the doctor, said that he was about to die
So goodbye
And that's the end of Silas
Rate me, please!:)

This is what Dubya said after he read this: Well, looks like I'm going to have to invade Silas now.
