Thesba called me on the phone
He had a case of colic
I told him it was 'cause he was
A rubbing alcoholic

Trempkin was so proud he was
Such a great romancer
Until I said the world could use
One less beer-bellied dancer

Nell-Catain was pregnant and
She heard all the expressions
It's just a hot flash or
Or else those fire breathing lessons

I sleep, I dream, I dream I sleep
Sometimes dreaming is too deep
If I could shed one layer now
I'd still remain asleep somehow

Thesba called me on the phone
He had a case of colic
(Fighting fire with fire)
I told him it was because he was
A rubbing alcoholic
(Now he's hitting the sauce)

Trempkin was so proud he was
Such a great romancer
(He's always watching the birds)
Until I said the world could use
One less beer-bellied dancer

Nell-Catain was pregnant and
She heard all the expressions
It's just a hot flash or
Or else those fire breathing lessons

I sleep, I dream, I dream I sleep
Sometimes dreaming is too deep
If I could shed one layer now
I'd still remain asleep somehow
