lyrics

Pick it up
24 hours a day
you better you pick it up
You gotta -
Take it and use it
Pick it up
So you can chose it

Round the block and up the road
There’s a shark creature roamin’
And it’s down in the subway train
Lock the door and burn the house
And give daddy that knife back
And please put that gun away

Pick it up
Oh, you’ve got to have it
Why don’t you pick it up
24 hours a day

why don’t you, why don’t you…etc.
Oh I’m gonna tell you, what I’m gonna do

I’m gonna piss in the ocean
- - - - - - -

Pick it up
Take and use it

Pick it up
Oh, you’ve got to have it
Why don’t you pick it up
24 hours a day
Why don’t you, why don’t you etc.
Oh I’m gonna tell you, what I’m gonna do

Pick it up
Oh, you’ve gotta have it
Why don’t you pick it up
24 hours a day
Why don’t you, why don’t you…etc.

Ooh.Pick. It.Up

I don’t like your party dress
Cause this ain’t no party
And grandma ain’t no christmas tree
And don’t you - me
With your wallpaper backdrop
I don’t belong to the family
