Lyrics

You'll have to explain
You'll have to explain
The unpleasant stain

Sing it again

She has to explain
She has to explain
The unpleasant stain

You had a short pain
He made your mark in the dark
What a lark

The doctor agreed
The doctor agreed
Smart girls never bleed

You couldn't succeed
You're prepared to breed
Yes, indeed

Baby, don't you panic when you're feeling organic
Oh no (Baby, don't you panic when you're feeling organic, oh no)
You're the mechanism, and I'm the mechanic
Oh yes (You're the mechanism, and I'm the mechanic)
Oh yes, we are, we certainly are
Oh yes

Drop it

And when it's congealed
And when it's congealed
Estimate the yield

Privacy squealed
See how much I can spare
If I dare

Swing with me!

Even the loveliest faces
Leave inexplicable traces
In the unlikeliest places
Oh yes, they do, they certainly do
Oh yes (they do, they certainly do)
Oh yes
