The Lyrics

Based on this guy I saw at the mall one time. Don't know who he was but it was a funny sight.
Arnie waited
'Til he got in the mall
He sat down in a chair
And there he sprawled
And then he fell asleep
Though he still sat tall
His big mouth was wide open

The people walked by him
And sat by him too
The noises he made
Sounded just like the zoo
No one seemed to care
And they just got used to
His mouth snoring loudly

Sleep with your mouth wide open
Catchin' those flies, yummy
Wake with your mouth wide open
And then you will feel crummy

The paper says
Arn always opens his mouth
That he is so gross
And his class has gone south
And then the paper
Said that he snores real loud
Their ears could not take it

His XL t-shirt
Was sagging off the chair
The gaps in the chair then
Were catching on hair
But no one noticed that
He snored like a big bear
His big mouth was wide open

Sleep with your mouth wide open
People throw stuff in there
When your mouth is wide open
Not embarrassed, you don't care

Sleep with your mouth wide open
Typical Georgia scene
Catch flies with mouth wide open
And the chair's now faded green

Having the guy wake up and "walk with his fly wide open" towards the end would have added some more comedy to the story, says my muse...
