Smellbows 03:26
Suppose your nose was where your elbows goes Would you call them smellbows? Would you call them smellbows? Suppose your nose was where your elbows goes Would you call them smellbows? Would you call them smellbows? Put a little nose grease Into your elbow crease Watch it where you’re swingin 'em (Watch it where you're swingin 'em!) If you got to sneeze Sneezin' is the real thing When you’re blowing out both sides All your friends will wipe their face And say ‘Man, he’s such a talented guy’ They come from north and south to high and lows From Maine to Monticello To tell you about my smellbows And even Mr Edgar Allen Poes Is Raven about my smellbows Those blingin', swingin' fellows Smellbows--- Smellbows--- Smellbows--- BREAK Smell it to the left, and smell it to the right Smell it to the left, and keep it out of sight Look ma! I got the smellbows--- Oh NO! Smellbows, etc

When ya gettin pushed around on the playground By some bully shoving people off the merry go round Just pick yourself up, don’t push back Take a walk around the block to get your mind on track I’m gonna walk (walk) Up and down the block I’m gonna sing (sing) Until I feel alright I’m gonna take a deep breath and start all over again So I can do my thing I’m gonna walk (walk walk) Up and down the block I’m gonna sing (sing) Until I feel alright I’m gonna shake an etch-a-sketch and start all over again But first I’ll count to ten: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10!

Felt a little funny When I woke up in the afternoon I felt a little stung under my tongue I checked the mirror in the bathroom Now I don’t wanna give out Too much information I started to experience Minor inflammation Went to the internets And entered all my symptoms It told me my condition As soon as I list em Its called Plica Fimbriata, I’m a dragon baby Plica Fimbriata… (x2) Went to see the doctor To find out what I had in store He said ‘Open up’ – and I said ‘What’ He said ‘Good Gosh’- I have never seen this before I said ‘Doctor sock it to me!’ Give me my prognosis He said ‘Johnny me tell ya, This ain’t no halitosis You got some scaly bizness Not actin like it s’pose to I said ‘Stop it cuz your givin me Wicked bad psychosis It's called Plica Fimbriata I’m a dragon baby Plica Fimbriata - I can't turn it off It's called Plica Fimbriata I’m a dragon baby Plica Fimbriata I’m a dragon baby, youre a dragon baby Plica Fimbriata And I don’t know why Plica Fimbriata Momma said baby Don’t you misbehave Or I’m gonna send you To your dragon cave Moved out of the city Found a timeshare in the Poconos Some say it’s a pity Others say ‘That’s how it goes’ Now I’m breathin' fire From my mountain layer I wear dragon attire I just met the mayor Cuz I can fly much higher Don’t send no dragon slayer Just give me some me some papaya I like it as a snack  It's called Plica Fimbriata I’m a dragon baby Plica Fimbriata - I can't turn it off It's called Plica Fimbriata I’m a dragon baby Plica Fimbriata I’m a dragon baby, youre a dragon baby

I've got an idea, you got one too With our imaginations There ain't nothin' that we can't do Collaboration station I just have to say yes to you And add my own creation We can make something brand new Collaboration station If you start to listen The piece that you've been missin Could fall right in to place at the start If I were to paint with you And you should draw the ocean I could paint the sky so blue It's a magic potion We'll serve it up together Our time could be a tether That opens up our point of view We all have things that we can do We all have limitations [Together] Together we can make it thru Collaboration station If you start to listen The peace that you've been missin Could fall right in to place at the start Collaboration station, Collaboration station
