bought a bottle of baby shampoo
because it promised no more tears
had to get my money back
because i cried for years and years
 
i'm in the jaws of the dog of life
and he's shaking me like a bone
my life and brain are all screwed up
since you left me all alone
 
use your brain for thinking
use your heart for pumping blood
use your eyes for winking
instead of creating floods
 
you'd better use your heart
 
feeling just like the buzzard boy
on the cemetery lawn
what i love is buried there
but in time it'll all be gone
 
my life is like a violin string
that is seriously frayed
who wants to hear a symphony
that should never have been played
 
use your brain for thinking
use your heart for pumping blood
use your eyes for winking
instead of creating floods
 
you'd better use your heart
