Record Body Count

Joey pulled himself to his knees,
Pulled his body back up the bank
and looked back down there.

Said the water was not that deep,
But I almost drowned there
You can drown in a bathtub
So they... Say.

Someone in class called me a loser
So I decided to skip the day
(hey hey) skip the day.

Tried to look casual sneakin round the back
As I shotput across the track
Into the gate beside the portables

But a red tie and school gray slacks
Doesn't blend in with the grass
As the teacher was changing class

He chased me half way through the park
Till I ran into the woods
Then I'm (very good) in the woods!

So I was an Indian
The player by the creek
And dried my eyes there.

There's a record body count this year
There's a record body count this year!

Joey stepped up on a block of ice,
Put a rope around his neck.
Fell asleep before he died
