Lyrics

Don't pick it up, you!

I saw a little kid, as he walked around
He picked a candy bar up off the ground
He chowed about a half, then his face turned blue
Turned out that candy bar was doggy doo

Whoa, don't pick it up, I say
Whoa, unless you can throw it away
Whoa, don't pick it up, I say
You're gonna be bummed that you went that way

You're out there makin' bacon, no scrutiny
You mess around too much and you got VD
You know, you never think and you're sore today
You're gonna take it back to California, yeah

Whoa, don't pick it up, I say
Whoa, unless you can throw it away
Whoa, don't pick it up, I say
You're gonna be bummed that you went that way

Don't pick it up, pick it up, pick it up

So my friend was kinda hurtin' for a girl to try
He saw one that looked like Pat on Saturday Night Live
It had a pair of thingies, a mustache too
Not clearly male nor female, so what to do?

Whoa, don't pick it up, I say
Whoa, unless you can throw it away
Whoa, don't pick it up, I say
You're gonna be bummed that you went that way
