Lyrics Edit

I eat food to satisfy my hunger
I drink water to quench my thirst
I use my mouth and air to blow balloon up
I prick with pin to watch it burst
To make noise I use my breath
To unlock doors I use a key
When I'm looking for something I use my eyes
I use booze to unlock me

I sweep so I can sleep
I sweep so I can sleep
Sweep Sweep Sweep Sweep Sweep

I wear shoes so I can run
As to avoid the broken glass
I wear the pants because they suit me
And to discourage the pinchin' of ass
I'll tell a joke to make you laugh
I'll close the door to have a cry
They say that change and pain is a positive thing
So have I changed since you died?

I sweep so I can sleep
I sweep so I can sleep
Sweep Sweep Sweep Sweep Sweep

Don't ask me why I smoke, I don't know
But I drink to get drunk
Don't ask me why I smoke, I don't know
But I drink to get drunk
Don't ask me why I smoke, I don't know
But I, but I, but I drink to get drunk
Don't ask me why I smoke, I don't know
But I, but I, but I drink to get drunk

That noise again
That noise again
