Why do you insist that we stay in tonight?
Because you think that
I'll get into a bar fight again

'Why don't we just stay in?' you say
"Use our words
Describe the things
We heard today"

But speaking is such a bore, I say
Words are for the seldom poor
Conservative bald men

"But ink draws more than blades" you say
I disagree, please prove your point
With past experience

"Well, how could you forget?
That poor old man from the town hall
That you knocked on the ground"

Well he was a real old coot
Mocked my slacks
Begged for attacks from
My rolex-less wrists

"But what about our neighbor, John?
Just cut his grass and
You were crass
Ashamed him on his land'

What about our neighbor, John?
I said his lawn looked sumptuous
He failed to understand
The synonym for his hard work
I would have shook his hand
But words are for the seldom poor
Conservative bald men
Seldom defend
But always seem to offend
The misunderstanding crowd
