My carpets are up and rummage the (unnintelligible), sin to the hooooooweeeeuuuuu
Parkinson's runnin, runnin the boat
Parkinson, the streets until what I have hidden there
Listen, listen to the hooooooowwweeeeeuuuuuuuhuuuuuey
For I could bite the bullet and live life without a lemon.
The actual lyrics, according to REMrock.com:
My carpenter's out and running about, barking in the, listen to the holler
My pockets are out and running about
Barking in the street to tell what I have hidden there
Listen, listen to the holler
If I write a book it will be called "Life and How to Live It".
Yeesh. I love R.E.M., but I'm glad Michael learned how to enunciate. I can't imagine what a singalong at an early-80s R.E.M. concert would be like.
