The Lyrics

If you’re tire of poker,
And you need a better hand.
And bowling, just ain’t what it used to be.
Use your ingenuity,
Invent a new time share,
To entertain all of your friends for free.

You just open your door,
Eat apples, except for the core.
Then pick seeds out, oh yeah,
The seeds you adore.
Granny Smith green or just red,
This will surely knock your friends dead.
You’ll spits seeds through your front door frame,
You start a trend.

If this guy, above you,
Is your Boss who’s full of crap,
And your workmates ask, “Why’d you invite him for?”.
Keep your keg together, and curse his name out loud,
And soon cops will be knocking upon your door.

You just open your door
Eat apples, except for the core.
Then pick seeds out, oh yeah,
The seeds you adore.
Granny Smith green or just red,
This will surely knock your friends dead.
Cops’ll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hey, ain’t it good to know when you start a trend,
Cops will be quick to scold.
They’ll cuff you, and arrest you.
They’ll take your seeds if you let them,
Oh yeah, but don’t you let them.

You just call off the game,
And invent one that’s almost the same.
Only this time, invite your best dame.
Oh babe, let’s go out to
Spit some seeds over the wall,
Hey now, all we’ve got to do is crawl,
And the cops won’t catch us, yeah.
You start a trend.
You start a trend.
Ain’t you proud to know you start a trend.
Ain’t you proud to know you start a trend.
Oh yeah, yeah, you start a trend.
