Happy carnival everybody. I'm proud to present perhaps the world's first Lundi Gras song... This one goes out to everyone all over town who have been burning their fingers getting ready for their big day.


hey doll…what’s your gluestick situation?
i’m here i fear in a most abject occupation
i’m all in a panic i wring my hands and i walk the floor
i went up to the attic but it’s all been done before
i been up all night but nothing fits quite right
won’t you help me?

half past three i was peaceful in my disconnect
keep me free from people stumbling around half wrecked
out of the blue i had a visit from jack the Persian
now I feel brand new like i can make that annual excursion
you in your new blue wig
and i just played my last gig
come on over

i’m all loose and tired but that’s ok now the day has begun
i was all screws and wire but you showed me the way of the gun
show me what you did how exactly do you fix that spot
you said careful kid don’t you know that this thing gets hot
let your spirit sing and you can be anything that you want to…
