The Lyrics

This is the fifth song in my opera. It is the response of the dreaming man inside his dream to the events he had witnessed. See "you are annoying (opera#4) for backround and what other songs to refer to... in that order. Its not absolutely necessary to do that but it might help
Sometimes I feel that I have
Gone insane and have a
Faulty brain
Since I see things that just cannot be
One jar on my ledge
It went off the edge
And shrinks may scoff
But I saw the other one push it off

And that jar's insides poured
Onto the rug over my floor
It stained the rug quite clearly
And that spill will cost me dearly
Since you can't get stains without ruining the rug
Oh... stained the rug
Stained the rug

My doc is sure that I have
Gone insane and have a
Faulty brain
For implying that jars have a mind of their own
But i saw the green
Stuff that made my rug unclean
And I saw the ketchup slide
In order to knock the relish over the side

And that jar's insides poured
Onto the rug over my floor
It stained the rug quite clearly
And that spill will cost me dearly
Since you can't get stains without ruining the rug
Oh... stained the rug
Stained the rug

Now you mock me
I think that you should wait and see
That soon your condiments will be warring
And all over your floor they'll be pouring
Tainted rugs, tainted rugs
tainted rugs, tained rugs
You will all have tainted rugs
You will all have tainted rugs
Tainted rugs
Tainted rugs
