Down in the sewer

 

Picking up quite a lot of empty coca cola cans

 

and there sure are a lot of them around here

 

How did I get down here ?

 

Well it's a long story.

 

I should have stayed down home out on the farm

 

and kept my tootsies warm instead of freezing them off down here

 

There's lots of rats down here

 

You can see the whites of their eyes

 

They got sharp teeth

 

Deep breath

 

And lots of diseases

 

People say you shouldn't stay down here too long

 

Lose your sense of light and dark

 

Lose your sense of smell

 

I tell you what I'm gonna do

 

Gonna make love to a water-rat or two

 

and breed a family

 

they'll be called the survivors

 

You know why ?

 

No

 

They're gonna survive

 

I'll see you in the sewer <darling>

 

and don't be late!
