From the album Ants in My Pants
These are my favourite pants, other ones don’t really stand a chance,
The colour is just alright, but these pockets are out of sight!
When I’m having a look around, and I find a treasure on the ground,
I don’t need to find a place to lock it, I just put it right in my pocket.
I’ve got a feather, some marbles and a pile of rocks,
A bouncy ball and a pair of dirty socks.
A paper airplane and a hot wheels car,
A balloon and a half-eaten candy bar.
There’s some grass and dirt and a couple of worms,
A rubber band and a top that turns,
A broken crayon and some chewing gum,
And who knows where this thing came from?!?!
But the stick I found was much too sharp,
It made a hole in there, pulled my pocket right apart!
Now all of the things I found are lying down there on the ground,
I just lost everything I said, it's too bad I wasn’t carrying a needle and thread.
