you can have your shopping carts



BETTER ANIMAL

for Gabe and Liz Durham!

Who put the teeth in the ice cream?
Who stopped the argument with the ump?
Who gave a hearing aid to the slave?
Who poured the buttered rum on the nun?

We don't have a tent. So let's make one from our skin.
Ask me what I want to be and I will tell you then:

All I wanna be's a better animal
All I wanna be's a better animal
All I wanna be's a better animal
All I wanna be's a better animal
You can have your shopping carts
And mistletoe and tea
Oh, a better animal
Is all I wanna be
I wanna be
I wanna be

[context specific lyrics!]
Who said Gabe and Liz could move to Nashville?
I seem to remember that they didn't ask me
[end of context specific lyrics]
Who drank a smoothie in the tsunami?
Who sang doo-wap to the fascist cop?

We don't have a tent. So let's make one from our skin.
Ask me what I want to be and I will tell you then:

All I wanna be's a better animal
All I wanna be's a better animal
All I wanna be's a better animal
All I wanna be's a better animal
You can have your shopping carts
And mistletoe and tea
Oh, a better animal
Is all I wanna be
I wanna be
I wanna be
