The Lyrics

Another one of my many Alanis parodies. Few notes: the second half of the last chorus refers to the original, where Alanis makes "silence" sound like "toilets". The "assuaged" comment is a reference to "So-Called Chaos", where Alanis used it twice. The foreign languages is absolutely nothing to do with Alanis; they're just languages some people might think Alanis is singing in. Finally, many of the references about smarter words and metaphors also refer to the original.
How bout finding a smarter word that just means drugs?
How bout reading dictionaries at lunch?
How bout using metaphors about carrots?
How bout that rare Peruvian adverb?

Thank you, thesaurus
Thank you, great poets
Thank you, vocabulary
Thank you, Dickens
Thank you, Shakespeare
Thank you, thank you, language

How bout me starting to sing sort of normal?
How bout me enjoying a slang word for once?
How bout showing off my huge linguistic talents?
How bout whining so I just sound quite nice?

Thank you, thesaurus
Thank you, great poets
Thank you, vocabulary
Thank you, Dickens
Thank you, Shakespeare
Thank you, thank you, language

The moment I say "assuaged"
Is the moment my mouth starts to fiercely ramble
The moment I say something short
Is when sheep sprout wings and fly

How bout fitting in some words like masochistic?
How bout adding a word that is religious?
How bout rejecting an adjective or twenty?
How bout sticking to short words next album?

Thank you, thesaurus
Thank you, college smarts
Thank you, Mandarin Chinese!
Thank you English class
Stuff my clarity
