The Lyrics

Gen X kids always have more interesting pets than we used to have...
I used to have a cat
I wouldn't pat
Got bored with that
I wanna fish that's flat

I'll save him from a net
My bestest pet
Planar and wet
Mum will be so upset...

Oh,I want to get a ray
A big ol' manta ray
Yeah yeah yeah

Oh, I want to get a ray
I might call him Andre
Yeah yeah yeah

I'd really love this fish
A manta ray
Don't need a leash
(Been smokin' strong hashish)

I'd play him my CDs
Hope he digs Outkast
Alicia Keys
Do rays like R'n'B??
Oh oh oh yeah

Oh,I want to get a ray
Hamsters are so passe
Yeah yeah yeah

Oh,I want to get a ray
He could be straight or gay
Don't care, care

I want to get a ray
A big ol' manta ray (repeat)

tough to fill, those short lines - but, you don't wanna get a gay ray - believe me, I know what I'm talking about - 555

Delightfully nonsensical, like Yankovic or TMBG in their prime. Three fives for you and your ray.

Manta Rays kick ass! Great job, Kristof.

As I vote these three 5's, I'm watching my 7 month old Jack Russel dry-hump a stuffed tiger toy that I won at the state fair. I HOPE he thinks it's a girl tiger!

Is that what they mean when they say they're gonna "catch some rays"?
