It's been one week since you looked at me Cocked your head to the side and said "I'm angry" Five days since you laughed at me saying "Get that together, come back and see me". Nothing too crazy yet They split up, and the girlfriend tells the boyfriend to only come back once he gets his life in order.

Did you see it last week? Well they had this one freak Who suckerpunched his whole family Do your recall when the brawl Became a total free for all? And Jerry's in the middle tryin' to be the referee Hey see the stripper with the implants?
It's been one week since you looked at me Cocked your head to one side and said I'm angry Five days since you laughed at me saying Get that together, come back and see me Three days since the living room I realized it's all my fault, but couldn't tell you Yesterday you'd forgiven me But it'll still be two days till I say I'm sorry. Hold it now and watch the Hoodwink As I make you stop, think You'll think you're lookin' at Aquaman I summon fish to the dish Although I like the Chalet Swiss I like the sushi 'cause its ever touched a frying pan Hot like Wasabe when I bust rhymes Big like LeAnn Rimes Because I'm all about value Bert Kaempfort's got the mad hits You try to match wits, you try to hold me But I bust through Gonna make a break and take a fake I'd like a stinkin' achin' shake I like vanilla, its the finest of the flavors Gotta see the show, 'cause then you'll know The vertigo is gonna grow Cause its so dangerous You'll have to sign a waiver. How can I help if I think you're funny when you're mad Tryin' hard not to smile though I feel bad I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral Can't understand what I mean?
