The Lyrics

Practical joke-themed items are often called "Novelties."
(instrumental opening)

If you search for dribble glass
it isn't hard to find.
You can have the laughs you need to live.
But if you look for pranks with class
you might just as well be blind.
Nobody seems to have a hoot to give!

Novelty!
It's such a silly word.
To the floor you nailed my shoe.
Novelty!
Some laughter we have heard.
It's mostly what I give to you.

I can always find someone
from whom I get a rise
if I use the tricks that's up my sleeve.
But I don't want some dirty looks
from all you girls and guys.
That's why I only prank those quite naive!

Novelty!
It's such a silly word.
To the floor you nailed my shoe.
Novelty!
Some laughter we have heard.
It's mostly what I give to you.

I can prank your mother.
I can prank my friend.
I can have a cushion sounding
like a bitter "end."
Anyone can punk me out
with dollar bill on string.
I know.
(I know.)
I know, whoa, whoa, whoa...

When I'm deep inside of me
you should be concerned.
You should know I'm plotting when I'm gone.
But when I want hilarity
tell me, where else can I turn?
Each other, we've always played pranks upon!

Novelty!
It's such a silly word.
To the floor you nailed my shoe.
Novelty!
Some laughter we have heard!
It's mostly what I give to you!

(instrumental close)
