The Lyrics

My girlfriend says, Buy me a bauble--
No fur things, I'm St. PETA, who
Has to shave every day.
So Eternity gasses my way
As I walk through the room.

Just get me a plaything that's never
Gonna stir me to think of you.
Display every day the nice treasure, and then
Again, I'd ask you to spend loot.

But there never seems to be enough, I'm
Craving more things, more froufrou.
Go and find them!
Go look around. Money to blow.
Go get me some' I want some mo'
Go forthwith.

I have a big box for my knickknacks
That stream out like doubloons of Scrooge.
Another box: empty,
Need to fill it with plenty,
It needs a gimcrackle deluge.
