The Lyrics

Dumbbell, speedwell
Just some words that pair together well
Hear seashell

Eggshell, doorbell
I cannot read French and in troubell
More compound ell's

A barroom, a ballroom, a bridegroom
I want it done today
Somehow I'll find a way
Quicksand grassland wasteland secondhand you understand?

Backbite, upright
Flashlight nightlight uptight copyright
dogfight insight

A homeroom, a schoolroom, a bathroom
Background foreground you see
What artwork means to me
Brushstroke or two step back and view temperament extreme
It's gumshoe

A lowdown, a nightgown, a
Now what is the holdup?
Come on lets just pickup
I think you will understand I want to hold your hand

Upwards, backwards
Just forwards that go together towards
You big cowards
A Yes "Roundabout" no rubber band
Bye farewell
