How serious should we be, or should we be serious at all? Maybe serious enough to get the job done>>>>>>>>>>>then have some fun.


Give me a ball,

Give me a bat,

Give me glove,

I thank the Lord above!

For me this is one big playground,
everything is entertainment ground.
There are many toys to be found.
I don't take this world serious,
to do so would make me ferious.
Got no time for the stresses,
only time enjoying  processes.

Forget all the complex realities,
I go for the little boy familiarities.
I smile to much,
like a little kid out of touch.
I laugh all the time,
since when is laughing a crime.
You'll catch me out playing,
even if my life seems to be decaying.
I only get serious enough to patch,
then I go back out and play catch.

To me everything is funny,
even a dark world not sunny.
I'll find a sunrise,
without to many tries.
You'll find me laughing to death,
because it's better for my health.
The devils trying to scare me,
instill fear in me.
No body really dies for real,
this world is just a big phony thrill.

We're all on the trip of our lives,
so give me my McDonald fries.
Supersize my order,
next it'll be the Mexican border.
Taco bell ding dong,
before I eat comes a happy song.

"You deserve a break today,"

So I break for some enjoyment,
get ready for my good time deployment.
Anywhere there's some nice clean fun,
forget putting bullets in my gun.
When death shows up to be taking,
straight in the eye I'll be laughing.
You come for me dark one,
I'm only traveling with the light son.

Take your shadow,
darkness doesn't frighten me,
I'll play with it to entertain you see.
If nothing is seriously taken,
your shadow will certainly be forsaken.
I'll find some light about,
put you out.
Poof gone!

Just like everything bad around me,
poof gone away from me.
Devil, devil come out and play,
don't let me frightened you away.
Say your evil magic won't work,
your tail has a dull fork?
Pity, pity on you,
did someone take your boo?

Seems like Jesus has been around spreading light,
putting a boot into your evil might,
blinding you from everyones sight.
Oh, isn't that to bad,
I know it makes you sad,
so patch behind and be glad,
we're tired of being had.
Had by a phony illusionist,
who's just a confusionist.

This old man,
he plays one,
he plays nick nack on your fun.
With a nick nack rattle tat,
give devil a bone,
this old man went playing on.

This old man,
he plays two,
he plays nick nack on your boo.
With a nick nack tattle rat,
give a devil a bone,
this whole world went playing on.

This old man,
he plays three,
he plays nick nack on your evil spree.
With a nick nack tattle rat,
give a devil a frozen hell,
this whole universe is free from his spell.

Give me a bat,

give me a ball,

give me a glove,


I surely love.
