My drum, my drum, my drum
Gonna make ya
My drum, my drum, my drum
Gonna make ya come

My book, my book, my book
Gonna make ya
My book, my book, my book
Gonna make ya look

My hand, my hand, my hand
My hand going under
My hand, my hand, my hand
My hand going understand

My fall, my fall
My fall gonna break ya
My fall, my fall
My fall gonna break your wall

I'm mad, I'm mad, I'm mad
Like a big dog
I'm mad, I'm mad, I'm mad
Like a big dog yeah
My god, my god, my god
Gave me a rod
My god, my god, my god
Gave me a rod

This shell, this shell, this shell
This shell, this shell, this shell yeah

Won't you beat
My drum, my drum, my drum
Gonna make ya
Won't you beat, Won't you beat
My drum, my drum, my drum
Gonna make ya come

Won't you read
My book, my book, my book
Gonna make ya
Won't you read, Won't you read
My book, my book, my book
Gonna make ya look

Won't you push
My hand, my hand, my hand
Going under
Won't you push, Won't you push
My hand, my hand, my hand
Going understand

Won't you break
My fall, my fall, my fall
My fall gonna break ya
Won't you break, Won't you break
My fall, my fall, my fall
My fall gonna break your wall

Bang
I'm mad, I'm mad, I'm mad
Like a big dog
Bang, Bang, Bang
I'm mad, I'm mad, I'm mad
Like a big dog yeah

My god, my god, my god
Gave me a rod
My god, my god, my god
Gave me a rod

This shell, this shell, this shell
This shell, this shell, this shell yeah
