The Lyrics

did you ever rob a grave for a mind ?
pick only one and leave the others behind
its not often easy, to pick one that's kind
did you ever rob a grave for a mind ?

did you ever have two brains that looked right ?
say yes to one, and let the other one slide
when sneaking out, you'll find two brains hard to hide
so you know you have to finally decide

sometimes there's one that will arise
uprooted and runny
when cord down to here
and nothing looks funny
and just when you think, its the one that is pure
you find he's wanted for some murders that occured

and you know you better throw back that mind
its not the one, we don't want no homicides
so back to the grave, and toss it over the side
cause you know you better throw back that mind

sometimes you really dig a lot
and get just a little
and then when you detach them
they crack in the middle
then in walks the sheriff, he sneaks up from behind
and says, "you're going to jail, son, for taking these minds"

and then he took me in his car for a ride
this ain't no fun, i might commit suicide
and then you could free me, my brain you'd unwind
and i hope you'd help yourself to my mind

thank you all, and a note to paul robinson...you were indeed correct when you said i was working on a theme....however, i did it accidentally....4 songs this week were a bit of an "elements" suite... guess i'm caught up in the brian wilson "smile " hoopla...my muse (a fat blonde named gladys, who is prone to taking extended vacations in morocco)...plays tricks on me like this all the time...very observant of you....glad someone is paying attention...i sure wasn't

Alvin - And now I forget what I was talking about then, I'll go look back so I can have a clue today. You have been really sharp all week, I do remember that much.

This sounds like the theme song of the UCLA willed body program. Very good parody, Alvin. Clever ending.
