lyrics

you've got books and you've got shirts
you've got phoenix in the dirt
sheep dogs herd you
i've got ratso i've got traps
you've got your moby's dusty tracks
say hello to everyone

you pull your knees up and you say you're gonna break a fin
the only reason the club was made was to let you in

double stink eye when you choose
even wise men get to lose
games they bore you
pushy thoughts and mango prunes
piles of paper piled on you
you write reports we play war

you pull your knees up and you say you're gonna break a fin
the only reason the club was made was to let you in
you pull your knees up in the shade in the thick and thin
the only reason the club was made was to let you in

red eft crawls under a rock
cameras battle after dark
for what they don't know
you send pictures of your sibs
but the joke is really this
it's something we don't know

you pull your knees up and you say you're gonna break a fin
the only reason the club was made was the let you in
you pull your knees up in the shade in the thick and thin
the only reason the club was made was to let you in
