Lyrics

Tomato Juice

Written By: Windy Lawlor

A thousand miles
seems pretty unrealistic
So let put this into
terms we can understand
I wouldn’t walk
a thousand miles to get to you
But I’d crawl three
If that would
show you how much
you mean to me

3 miles on your knees
is actually pretty far
But I’d do it
If it would
show you how
special you really are

There maybe rivers
that’d be wide enough
to make my point
And they’d be dangerous to cross alone
But we go camping
by a pretty decent-sized lake
And I’d row
across the whole thing
If you were on the other side

So here it is –
Here’s my silly little love song
I’d only sing for you
If you were really drunk
I found a way
to really tell if you love somebody
Would you bathe them in tomato juice -
If they got sprayed by a big skunk?

I’d bathe you in tomato Juice
I’d bathe you in tomato juice

I guess I could say
that I would climb the highest mountain
I climbed a mountain once and it was really hard
No I’m serious
I really did climb a mountain once
And it took me eight hours
But I’d do it again for you

I’d bathe you in tomato Juice
I’d bathe you in tomato juice

Momma always said
‘Don’t make promises you can’t keep’
so I’m saying this
with all my heart to you

I’d bathe you in tomato juice

You Pick It

Written By: Windy Lawlor

What do you do
When you have a big crust booger
Do you let it sit in your nose
Just admit it – sometimes
We all have crust boogers
Do you let yours sit in your nose
No you pick it –
Yeah you pick it
Or do you let it sit in your nose
No you pick it –
Yeah you pick it
Or would you leave it there
So nobody knows

Everyone picks their nose
Lets do it all together
Why is it that nobody shows
Everyone likes to pick their nose

Someone tell me
How it became
Such a big deal in the first place
As long as you don’t eat them
Or wipe them on walls
If you use a Kleenex
No one will care at all
Then you can pick it –
Yeah you can pick it
If you use a Kleenex
No one will care at all
Then you can pick it –
Yeah you can pick it
If you use a Kleenex
You can pick all day long

Everyone picks their nose
Lets do it all together
Why is it that no body shows
Everyone likes to pick their nose

All of you nose-pickers out there
I hope this gives you confidence
And if you ever feel ashamed
Why don’t you
Ask yourself this question
Have you ever met anyone
With out mucus?

Everyone picks their nose
Lets do it all together
Why is it that nobody shows
Everyone likes to pick their nose
