Lyrics

play Woo-hoo
play Woo-hoo
play Woo-hoo
play Woo-hoo

play I got my head  
play By a jumbo jet
play It wasn't  
play But   i-is
play No

play Woo-hoo
play When I   heavy-metal
play Woo-hoo
play And I'm pins and I'm  
play Woo-hoo
play Well, I lie and I'm  
play All of the time but I'm never  
play Why I   you
play Pleased to   you

play I got my head  
play When I was  
play It's not my problem
play It's not my problem

play Woo-hoo
play When I feel heavy-metal
play Woo-hoo
play And I'm pins and I'm needles
play Woo-hoo
play Well, I lie and I'm easy
play All of the time but I'm never sure
play Why I need you
play Pleased to meet you

play Yeah yeah
play Yeah yeah
play Yeah yeah
play Oh yeah
