Lyric sheet from the Deliverance at Hand! booklet.

I used to sing songs at the break of the day
Zippity-doo-dah Zippity-ay
Workin' myself into a frenzy
But I don't do that no more no way
I used like to learn how to speak in Chinese
"O-Kudasai" means "Baby, would ya please"
Conjugate your verbs with the greatest of ease
But I fell down hard on my bended knees

I feel like I've been run over by a truck
I don't care much about anything
I'm happy to sing
I'm lackin' the passion to do anything
I feel like I've been run over by a truck
I don't care much about anything
So give me a ring
And tell me to wake up and do anything

I used to play B-ball down at the park
Runnin' up the sideline until it got dark
Outside step-over with my right foot
Push off with the outside of my left foot
I used to chat up the girls out in the club
Lookin' for one of 'em to give me some love
The show wasn't over till the dough-boy come
Old, young, fat, dumb, I loved everyone

Grandma never was a pushover
Ain't nobody try to step to her
She could teach a common hustler to dance in France
Till her plane came a-crashin' down
On the way to see the Cleveland Brown
She was scramblin' on fourth down
How I wish that I had been around
