The Lyrics

Dedicated to a disappearing art form.........
You put your right hand in
You pull the clay right out
You make a green man thin
And a horse you cannot mount
You're molding Gumby/Pokey
And you make 'em walk around
Stop animation clout!

You make the cam'ra click
You make your models move
Another cam'ra click
Do your best to make it smooth
You're giving life to Pokey
And adventure will abound
Stop animation's groove!

You spend a lot of time
And very little dough
It takes a lot of time
To make old Gumby go
The look is very hokey
But the pair are still renowned
Stop animation's slow

Now the computer's in
And no more clay comes out
Except for Burton, Tim
There's no stop-motion out
I miss that Gumby/Pokey
With the crude picture and sound
Coming back? That I doubt

Ah, the modern world. We used to bring water from the stream, now we stream MP3's. When will it all end?

Yeah, nowadays, instead of Claymation, we have Clay Aiken. Wait a minute, they're the same thing.
