  • Maxine Schreck was a very lucky lady
    Maxine Schreck was a very lucky girl
    Who you wanna be
    Maxine Schreck
    Who you wanna see
    Maxine Schreck

    Have you got some time, have you got some spine
    Have you got something to begin with
    Or are you in a sinwich

    Have you got some nerve, have you got some verve
    Have you got something to depend on
    Or do you fender bend on

    And if you say no
    Do you mean to go
    Down below the earth with nothing

    Now you've got my name, and you've got my fame
    Have you got something to remind you
    Of who you used to be
    Or are you happy being me

    Moonlight and roses
    Starlight and fairytales that won't come true
    Good news for those who pine away
    The day comes shinin' through

    Kittens high-hattin', sittin' on satin
    With a host who's catnip fond
    For those who seize the day
    The way is paved beyond-er

    I didn't know the world was like this
    If I'da known, then I'd be psychic
    If I had a clue
    Then maybe I'd be blue as a mockingbird
    Why do you think she laughs so much

    I didn't know I had such problems
    If I'da known, then I'da solved them
    But looking down the road
