Water Pistol Man (Chocolate Mix)
When girls dressed in black they all look so lonely
And contraceptives don't get used by the horny
You can't find the key to the door in your building,..
But are you still willing
The responsibility becomes an afterthought
When one remembers the things that they should've bought
There's no pretending that you forgot..
Must everything in life have political ramifications
Even taking kids on vacation or having a simple operation..
But my friend Billy told me that sometimes
It takes a grown man a long time to learn
Just what it takes a child a night to learn
And my son proved his words..

[Chorus:]
Water pistol man full of ammunition
Squirtin' at fires on a worldwide mission
But did you ever think to stop to squirt
The flowers in your own backyard..
[x2]

For all my faux pa's I never said excuse me
Was the simplest things that always confused me
I never stopped I never looked both ways..
Must it always a tug of love between friends and work
Hope to learn the meaning of the word jerk
Before it happens to a rope round my neck..
Let's build a bigger telescope
So that we can see things more up close
Farther away from where we really are..
I was up the whole night before
Reading books about places I'll probably never go..
And those aren't good things to know about.

[Chorus]
[x2]

When I feel with my heart, I know in my mind
I should say with my lips -But don't does that make you feel upset?
I should know that the power of one man seems like a small squirt..
When he aims at the flames of the whole earth
But the fire starts at home...

[Chorus]
[x5]
