Lyrics
Oswald's singing elephant friend's kid
knocked into a hydrant
Oswald's singing elephant friend's kid
backed up into a hydrant
they hurried away
ran over some guy's foot
put it in an I didn't
police Italia caught up with him
said "yes you did"
so he hired a lawyer to go back out to Italia
fly a jet through a wire
his lawyer advised him about the other thing
decided to change his mind,
flew higher

Mick and Lisa met the Italian kid
they didn't know what he was up to
he had a friend in the crowd
buncha freaks hanging around
ran over his foot
next day they came back to Omaha
came back cryin through Kansas (?)
mick's friends. Lisa's friends.
their singing elephant's friend's kid
now they had a lawyer to hire

mick's friend's elephant kid
they didn't run over that foot,
no they didn't
mick's friend's singing elephant's kid
"no i didn't run over the foot of that kid"
next day a hertz rental car came over
and said we got a summons for ya
field marshall stopped by on his afternoon picnic off
delivered the hand mitten
to mick, who had a day off
jumped back into his trailer
headed back to capital town
where he lived, worked and discussed many things

never did get the summons

one of my more favorites from the JOAN camp.

Love the intro - the way the mix rolls in
swarming my brain with JOANNESS. Great story - and it's got a beat I can trance to. Excellent tune JOANS - and nice use of effects - very sophisto for you guys.

as everyone knows...
we are the height of sophistication around here. but thanks for pointing it out bud. as for the JOANness in your head, there must be medication for that. but we've never found the right cocktail to alleviate it

ExCELLENT!!!!
The opening riff is AWESOME!!!! You should work more on that... Didn't like the sudden face in was a bit weird but its very cool overall liked it a lot. Brilliant production value and a 10 for creativity :)
