The Lyrics

Any letter with a series of hyphens after it, is supposed to be echoed, like was done in the original
R----- A----- C----- O----- O---- N-----
Racoon, RANTS!

[Spoken]
We can rant if we want to,
We can leave our brains behind,
Cause your brain can't rant and it don't help to rant
if you have a steady mind,
I say, we complain on what we want to,
And do so without fail,
About the Mideast crisis, and politic loonies,
And the health of VIA Rail,
And we can rant

[Sung]
We can rant if we want to,
We can leave our brains behind,
Cause your brain can't rant and it don't help to rant
if you have a steady mind,
I say, we complain on what we want to,
And do so without fail,
About the Mideast crisis, and politic loonies,
And the health of VIA Rail,
And we can rant
COMPLAIN!

We can say what we want to
The way we do it's never wrong,
We can pick on skaters, or old percolators,
Or Dubya like Mr. Tong,
Say, we complain when we want to
If we don't nobody will
And we just laugh and shrug it all off
when they call me an imbecile

[Refrain]
I say, we can rant, we can rant
We don't need alcohol
We complain, we complain
And drive them up the wall
We can rant, we can rant
Whether wearing skirts or pants,
We can rant, we can rant,
About SUVs or Ants,

Raccoon Rants,
Everybody rants,
Everybody rants,

R---- A---- C---- O----- O----- N-----
Racoon, Rants!

We can rant if we want to
On the bagpipe or the land mine
Or oil explorations, or funny nations,
Everything's kosher or fine,
I say, We can rant if we want to,
We can leave our brains behind,
Cause your brain can't rant and it don't help to rant
if you have a steady mind

[Refrain]

Everybody rants, Raccoon Rants [6x]
EVERYBODY RANT
