Barenaked Ladies – Uncle Elwyn lyrics

It's uncle elwyn
It's uncle elwyn
My uncle elwyn is tall
My elwyn is small
My elwyn plays a mean basketball
He's about 45 maybe 55, 60
I'm not sure; once he mixed me a drink
I was about 5 years old
It was koolaid and pop
I thought that was cold
Cold meaning good
Cold's supposed to be bad but I think that I otta would
Change some things, I change their meanings
I've been here, I've been demeaning
Once, twice, maybe three times
I asked my uncle elwyn he's a mime
Ask uncle elwyn
Ask uncle elwyn
E-l-w-y-n that's elwyn, say it again
E-l-w-y-n that's elwyn, say it again
E-l-w-y-n that's elwyn, sing it again
E-l-w-y-n that's elwyn, that's my uncle!
