The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

(Sung by Poppy Bush:)
It takes time to rearrange.
They'll attack you as sleazy.
You're still dumb - not my fault.
There's so much that you don't know.
Rely on Karl - settle down.
But I want you and Cheney
To agree to be bold.
Make it snappy!
I'm no dunce like you are now, and I know nothing's easy.
Just be calm when they've found something's going on.
But take your time - drink a lot.
Why think of everything you've got?
'Cause you won't still be here tomorrow, if your team is not!

(Sung by Shrub:)
How can I try to explain?
When I do, I make mistakes again.
It's always been the same, lame old story.
Every moment I could talk, they said my brain was missin'
Is there a way I could know when I'd have to go away?
Do I have to go away?

(Poppy Bush:)
It takes time to rearrange.
Take them down; hit the lowly.
You're still dumb; that's your fault.
There's so much that will just show through.
Rely on Karl - settle down.
But I want you and Cheney
To agree to be bold.
Make it snappy!
(Shrub:Okay, okay, okay! You know I hate to make my decisions alone... Oh!)

(Shrub:)
All the times that I tried...
Sweeping all those things I screwed up aside. It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it.
Got no insight; I can't see.
But Dad's cronies prop up me.
Is there a way I could know when I'd have to go away?
Oh, no! I have to go!
(Poppy: Hey, hey, hey! Don't ever go and make these decisions alone!)
