Jackrabbits, Green Onions & Witches Stew
Jackrabbits, green onions & witches stew
Three dollars & upside down lemons & you
Dinky planet on a skateboard of dynamite
Oh, what to do, chile peppers, Mrs. Oops
Dr. What, Mr. Space Station unscrewed
The Redbook of Ants says you better run
No sireee, LOL, blowin’ my bubble gum sun
