Man Piaba Lyrics

When I was a lad just three foot three, certain
questions occured to me
So I asked me father quite seriously to tell me the
story about de bird and bee
He stammered and he stuttered pathetically and this is
what he said to me

He said the woman piaba and the man piaba
And the ton ton call baka lemon grass
The lilly root, gully root, belly root Uhmm!
And the famous grandy scratch scratch

It was clear as mud, but it covered the ground
And the confusion made me brain go round
I went and asked a good friend of mine known to the
world as Albert Einstein
He said "Son, from the beginning of time and creativity
there existed the force of relativity
Pi R square and minus ten is rooted only when the solar
system in one light year
Make the Hyden planitarium disapear
So if Mt. Everest doesn't move, I am positive that it
will prove

That the woman piaba and the man piaba
And the ton ton call baka lemon grass
The lilly root, gully root, belly root Uhmm!
And the famous grandy scratch scratch

It was clear as mud, but it covered the ground.
And the confusion made me brain go round.
I grabed a boat and I went abroad.
And in Baden Germany asked Sigmond Fraud.
He said, "Son, from your sad face remove the grouch,
put the body up on the couch.
I can see from your frustration a neurotic sublimation
Love and hate is psychosomatic.
Your Rorshac shows that you're a peril pathetic
It all started with a broken sibling
in the words of the famous Rudyard Kippling.

He said the woman piaba and the man piaba
And the ton ton call baka lemon grass
The lilly root, gully root, belly root Uhmm!
And the famous grandy scratch scratch

Well I travel far and I travel wide and I don't even
have meself a bride
All the great men upon this earth have confused me
since my birth
I been over land and been over sea, trying to find the
answer about de bird and bee
Now that I am ninty-three, I don't give a damn you see

If the woman piaba and the man piaba
And the ton ton call baka lemon grass
The lilly root, gully root, belly root Uhmm!
And the famous grandy scratch scratch
