Lyrics


Getting down to the wire
Getting down to the wire

Shot my cuffs with the cosmic shrub
We swept the stars under the rug
Sat right back and watched the world cruise by
What's the point in even trying

We're getting down
Getting down to the wire
Yeah, we're getting down
Getting down to the wire
Throw some fat onto the fire
We're getting down to the wire

Evolving through the millenium blues
When you grow thumbs I'll wrestle you
Are you looking for something to wrap your head around
Or are you still afraid of those clowns

We're getting down
Getting down to the wire
Yeah, we're getting down
Getting down to the wire
Throw some fat onto the fire
We're getting down to the wire

Ooo, do you feel thin?
You look so thin...

I'm tired of playing in a pool of wax
Johnny, I want my liver back
I'll carve you a knife made out of soap
You'll see what's wrong with good clean hope

We're getting down
Getting down to the wire
Yeah, we're getting down
Getting down to the wire
Something stings in the choir
We're getting down to the wire

Get down to the wire
