The Lyrics

Sometimes drastic measures are needed. Sometimes drastic measures are not needed, but are still performed. And sometimes drastic measures are unneeded, performed anyway and barely reacted to...
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba-ba, ba-a-a
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba-ba, ba-a-a

"Need to cut out all your talk now"
You would never stop that rot
Really doubted all your power
To come through to shut me down
I'll admit that I was awful
But I thought you'd just run out
Hard to hate you, but I'll rate you
High for these restraints, dude

Lips are sewn up, not that painful
Lips are sewn up, you're that disdainful?

Thought you'd just use duct tape, but you
Really went all out here, man
Now my big lips that had spat shit
Have been nearly stitched thin

Lips are sewn up, the worst facial
Lips are sewn up, talk is disabled

Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba-ba, ba-a-a
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba-ba, ba-a-a

5-star stitcher, still on Twitter
So your plan just fell apart
And your method irked our dentist
When is your next visit?

Lips are sewn up, might be labelled
Lips are sewn up, caution'ry fable
Lips are sewn up, lips are sewn up
Lips are sewn up, my brain's still stable

I was a pest, drove you round the bend
But you took a step way too far, bro
You took your thread, pulled it through my flesh
I guess it made sense at the time, though
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la-la-la (but what I still don't get 'bout all this, though:)
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la-la-la (I've been threaded and yet I still sing, so)
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba (sha-la-la-la-la-la)
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba (sha-la-la-la-la-la) (this doesn't make much sense, makes you pissed, no?)
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba (sha-la-la-la-la-la)
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba (sha-la-la-la-la-la) (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba
Ba, ba-ba-ba, ba-ba, ba-a-a

The real question is: was the singer named Abe? Kudos if you got that.
