Lyrics

There's something that's lurked in the side of my mind
Since the day before we ever met
A panther of shadows obscene and unkind
I'll keep it for you as a pet

Everybody needs my nose                         
But no one knows my needs
Including you babe
And your daddy's in charge of the oyster party
Well, well well, the oyster party
Your mama's in league with the lobster gang       
Bang bang bang the lobster gang

Baby, I'm telling you true
This feeling I feel about you
It's not just the size of a walnut

If true love exists than it shouldn't take long   
It incubates under a shroud
It rips like a ray on the slit of her thong
And boluses over the crowd

Everybody needs your meat
But no one meets your needs                       
Including Kenneth
And your brother was part or a filing cabinet
Big, thick steak, a filing cabinet
Your sister was the filet of a juicy crown
Lips meet steak when the doggy's around           

Baby, I'm telling you true
This feeling I feel about you
It's not just the size of a walnut

So think of me sweetly and polish your soul
That I may be blinded with love                   
As long as I'm hungry, I'll never get old
And God knows I'm hungry enough

Everybody clocks your want
But no one wants your clock
Except for someone                                
And your lover was part of the hormone squad
Urge urge urge, the hormone squad
His kittens fell foul of the football team
Bash smash crash, plaster caveman

Baby, I'm telling you true                        
This feeling I feel about you
It's not just the size of a walnut
