Mama! There’s a spider in my room I said, Mama! There’s a spider in my room He said “Hey girl, why you still in bed?” “I’m gonna bite you real good, until you’re dead.” I said, “I live here man! Who are you Mr. Spider?” He said, “Hush up girl! And hold my hand.” So I yelled Mama! There’s a spider in my room I said, Mama! There’s a spider in my room He said, “Quit screaming girl! You gonna give me a headache” “I’m gonna crawl up and down you, girl I’ll make you shake!” I said, “Stop! I just wanna go to bed” He said, “girl you ain’t going to bed, until you meet your judgment day!” So I screamed Mama! There’s a spider in my room I said, Mama! There’s a spider in my room Daddy came home He said, “Girl why you still awake?” I said, “Daddy there’s a spider trying to kill me! And put me in my grave!” He said, “Girl you crazy! Go on to bed” I said, “Daddy you just lazy! Kill that damn spider dead!” So I said Mama, there’s a spider in my room I said, Mama there’s a spider in my room Mama! Mama! Mama! Mama!

My boy is tall glasses and all Block head in a queen size bed and he walks He’s got his plaid pants on Long legs they start at his head Strong hands oh what a man Southern belle and voodoo spells It can’t be said when your friends are all dead, ooh He’s got his plaid pants on Ah ya ya ya, ya ya My girl is lean christian it seems Kitchen bound when you need her around and she walks She’s got her plaid pants on Talking strong even when she’s wrong Hold you tight and stay up all night Southern belle and voodoo spells It can’t be said ‘cause her friends are all dead, ooh ooh She’s got her plaid pants on Ah ya ya ya, ya ya yeah (Ooohs and aahs) 1-2-3-4 Save your name and picture frames Your country’s fright, but your moving alright Southern belle and voodoo spells It can’t be said ‘cause our friends are all dead ooh They got their plaid pants on Ah ya ya ya, ya ya yeah

Striped walls, you’re 10 feet tall Long and lean, oh you look so mean Switching places bouncing up and down And round and round Itching faces, mind’s a blazing You make me feel like I’m downtown Oooh ooh Two chords for two colors Don’t lose it’s touch Feeling happy feeling lousy it makes you feel like you’re downtown

Hello, hi there They call me Mr. Pink And I’m so crazy I live alone with my shadows Sometimes they laugh and point And call me crazy Can’t read, can’t write Friends are for the weak Who needs hugs When you’re crazy Lights on, lights off Lights on and back off Lights on this shit Is crazy Roses are red and Violets are blue But I’m Mr. Pink And so are, crazy
