Song 2

Lyrics

playWoo-hoo
playWoo-hoo
playWoo-hoo
playWoo-hoo

playI got my head checked
playBy a jumbo jet
playIt wasn't easy
playBut nothing i-is
playNo

playWoo-hoo
playWhen I feel heavy-metal
playWoo-hoo
playAnd I'm pins and i'm needles
playWoo-hoo
playWell, I lie and I'm easy
playAll of the time but I'm never sure
playWhy I need you
playPleased to meet you

playI got my head done
playWhen I was young
playIt's not my problem
playIt's not my problem

playWoo-hoo
playWhen I feel heavy-metal
playWoo-hoo
playAnd I'm pins and I'm needles
playWoo-hoo
playWell, I lie and I'm easy
playAll of the time but I'm never sure
playWhy I need you
playPleased to meet you

playYeah yeah
playYeah yeah
playYeah yeah
playOh yeah
