I'm just tired of these damn bills comin' up all the time ...
So I'm gonna' let loose!

JP:
my favorite day at the dollar store
let the devil run, let the angels fly
the lumberjacks, I found them in my pocket

i let them out, they was choppin' some wood,
they were singing they songs and they asked if they could sing for me

Jeffrey:
herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, herd'n gurd'n

herd'n gurd'n, gerden
herd'n gurd'n, gerden
herd'n gurd'n, herd'n gurd'n

JP:
on my way to work i was on the bus
and the lumberjacks were on my lap
"Talk to me!" they said
"I don't wanna' go to work today, I don't think I got it it within me"
They said, "Okay. Just work and we'll sing!"

Jeffrey:
herd'n gurd'n, gerden
herd'n gurd'n, gerden
herd'n gurd'n, herd'n gurd'n

herd'n gurd'n, gerden
herd'n gurd'n, gerden
herd'n gurd'n, herd'n gurd'n

JP:
i took lunch out on the beach with a picnic basket
full of treats for my lumberjacks - they was hungry

when ev'rybody was full, I sat them down and asked them,
"Could we stay this way forever, please?"

"Nothing lasts forever, not even lumberjacks.
Take our advice and go to work, you lazy ass!"

I was ready to go - I was ready to put them in my pocket -
they said, "No. We must be on our way."
I just wanted to hide, but they said, "It's alright.
We can stay to sing!"

(please don't leave me all alone a'here one more time just me n' the guys singin' a song, just my guys and I)

Jeffrey:
