The Lyrics

Got bulb, and socket
Got ladder, I'm gonna use it
So handy, I'm feelin' dandy
Gonna change you, change you, change you lightbulb

Got buddies, and physics studies
Been thinkin', noggin shrinkin'
Impressin', just like Edison
Gonna change you, change you, change you lightbulb

Gonna use my eyes
Gonna use my hands
Gonna use this bulb
Gonna use this ladder
Gonna use my buddies
Gonna use clock, clock, clock, clockwise rotation

Oh, cause I'm gonna shine my light
Nobody else here is half as bright
I'm helpful (helpful) so helpful (helpful)
I'm gonna re-place this burned out lightbulb, leave it to me

Got notions, my mind is full
Got motion, in cir-cles
Renewin', corkscrewin' it, too
Gonna change you, change you, change you lightbulb

Gonna use my head
Gonna use my brain
Gonna use my smarts
Gonna use this ladder
Gonna use my buddies
Gonna use clock, clock, clock, clockwise rotation

Oh, and I'm gonna hold the bulb
Nobody else here can be the hub
I'm handy (handy) so handy (handy)
I'm gonna handle it like a dandy, leave it to me

Cause I'm gonna ease it in
Nobody else here can ride that spin
I'm badder (badder) yeah badder (badder)
I'm ridin' high while they turn that ladder, turn it for me

Oh oh oh oh

Turn it on

TY Porfle... I have a severe infection right now so my writing is slowing badly. By Monday it will be the first time in a long time that I will only have a few songs instead of 10-17!!!

Porfle, yeah but I admire your work b/c you can do silly/humorous really well. I am too complex a person for mass silliness. I am W3 (War, Weapons, Women) or really dark materials no one else will touch.
