The Lyrics

the following was inspired by john a. barry's fine parody of "in the ghetto" from 9/2
whittled out of wood...knotty pine
looking like a boy...by design
swallowed by a whale...so confined
crying in the night...what a bind

don't you know...that its true
he carved me...i'm brand new
the work of gepetto
don't you know...that its true
he carved me...i'm brand new
the work of gepetto

wonder if i'll be...humanized
to be flesh and bone...oh, how nice
somehow, i will find...consciousness
never giving up...i profess

don't you know...that its true
he carved me...i'm brand new
the work of gepetto
don't you know...that its true
he carved me...i'm brand new
the work of gepetto

father had to search...everywhere
and he found me here...wet and scared
though, i feel his love...sweet and pure
i know life is tough...that's for sure

don't you know...that its true
he carved me...i'm brand new
the work of gepetto
don't you know...that its true
he carved me...i'm brand new
the work of gepetto

the work of gepetto
the work of gepeto
the work of gepetto
