  • [Intro]
    Lard, you can see it in the clouds up in the sky
    Lard floats by in clusters in our water supply
    Lard, it's all of us, man, in our pores and in our hair
    Lard's what we conceal in those corny clothes we wear
    Lard is all
    Lard is divine
    Lard is in control
    Lard whips and chains our soul
    We carry credit cards
    We live in fear of art
    Lard is the om
    Lard is revolution
    Lard is the tapeworm in the bottle of cheap tequila
    That comes alive at night and sneaks up and bites your nipple
    Lard

    [Verse 1]
    Nowadays, most of us need someone to run our personal life
    Someone to see that the plants are watered
    Someone to make sure the place is clean
    Someone to make sure dinner is waiting
    Someone to call for theater tickets
    Someone to make up those cheap excuses
    What we need is lard
    Lard

    [Interlude]
    The answer
    The dancer
    The ointment
    The dream
    Absorb it
    Inflame it
    Respect it
    Molest it
    Lard

    [Verse 2]
    The country right now, it wants to be soothed
    And told it doesn't have to pay or sacrifice or learn
    No one is over the hill when the mountain comes to Muhammad

    [Pre-Chorus]
    We love to eat, we love to pray
    Mold over mind, hooray!

    [Chorus]
    The power of lard

    [Verse 3]
    Every time I take a crap, it's a cosmic experience
    Religion and chemicals are the key to the future
    Next time we have sex, just pretend that I'm Ed Meese
    The weasels have it down, man, it's a whole new age

    [Interlude]
    Which would you prefer, a computer or a gun?
    The sharks outlived the dinosaurs, you know

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 4]
    Pity the poor trainer in the stable when the racehorse farts
    Poison oak really is the aphrodisiac of the gods
    When people are asleep, we must all become alarm clocks
    Hey, man, life is my college

    [Interlude]
    It's dental floss of the mind
    Who will babysit the babysitters?

    [Verse 5]
    Ever hear about the guy in New York whose dick
    Fell off in the bath after he shot it full of coke?
    It's okay to run out of butter in Zambia
    Just smear squashed caterpillars on your toast
    Waiter, there's a terrorist in my soup
    Which came first, Max Headroom or Gerald Ford?
    Are you a man or are you a mouse?
    If you love your fun, die for it!

    [Chorus]

    [Outro]
    Who's gonna babysit the babysitters
    The power of lard
    Avoid everything
    Everything
    The power of lard
    Lard! Lard! Lard! Lard!
