  • LYRICS
  • Pick a name, pick a place.
    Chances are I've had the means to be there.
    Pick a date, pick a time,
    I've got it from a friend of mine.
    The ability to socialize.
    Holy Mackerel
    Once when I was young,
    I troubled over imperfection in my knees.
    When you cultivate a pompadour,
    it's best to keep the top up for the breeze.
    Cuts like hell, ya know.
    Sporty was a poetry boy
    and liked to puff his pipe into the night.
    But since he sold him hits of ectasy,
    Johnn Law, he took a decade of his life.
    That's a hunk o' life.
    Holy Mackerel.
