Lyrics

Why can’t you… 
Be what you’re supposed to be? 
Be what you’re supposed to be. 
Be what you’re supposed to be! 

Three generals said, 
“This here will make you look younger!” 

Six journals read, 
“They always say the right things!” 
And I’m impressed 
By how well it’s going over, 
With ancient text, 
And a spool of kite string. 

But I can’t get no relief, 
Cause I don’t, I don’t believe 
That I, 

Killed my tongue this morning, 
I killed my tongue. 
I killed my tongue this morning, 
I killed my tongue! 

Why can’t you… 
Be what you’re supposed to be? 
Be what you’re supposed to be. 
Be what you’re supposed to be! 

Our mothers cry, 
“Who wants a video smoothie?”
 
All others sigh, 
“Is it made of salad gold?” 
And I’m in desperate need of real fine grooming. 
Please be my guest, and prepare to get old! 

But I won’t get such relief 
Cause you don’t, you don’t believe 
That I, 

Killed my tongue this morning, 
I killed my tongue! 
I killed my tongue this morning, 
I killed my tongue 

Tooongue 
Ooouung 
Uuung-guh! 

"You make no sense, 
You're like a permanent computer!" 
In my defense, I present the digits that I have raised. 
"Then count us in, 
If only for the sake of humour!" 
But, where to begin? 
The green has gone, while we have "grayzed" 

But it serves as no relief, 
Cause you still just won’t believe 
That I, 

Killed my tongue this morning, 
I killed my tongue! 
I killed my tongue this morning, 
I killed my tongue!
