  • Alright, come close
    Let me show you everything I know
    The jungle slang
    Spinning 'round my head and I stare
    While my naked fool
    Fresh out of an icky gooey womb
    A woozy youth
    Dopes up on her silky smooth perfume

    Right, my little pooh bear, wanna take a chance?
    Wanna sip the smooth air, kick it in the sand
    I'd say I told you so but you just gonna cry
    You just wanna know those peanut butter vibes

    My, my simple sir, this ain't gonna work
    Mind my wicked words and tipsy topsy slurs
    I can't take this place, no, I can't take this place
    I just wanna go where I can get some space

    Truth be told
    I've been here, I've done this all before
    I take your gloom
    I curl it up and puff it into plumes

    Right, my little pooh bear, wanna take a chance?
    Wanna sip this smooth air, kick it in the sand
    I'd say I told you so but you just gonna cry
    You just wanna know those peanut butter vibes

    My, my simple sir, this ain't gonna work
    Mind my wicked words and tipsy topsy slurs
    I can't take this place, no, I can't take this place
    I just wanna go where I can get some space

    Hold my hand and float back to the summertime
    Tangled in the willows now our tongues are tied
    How can I believe you? How can I be nice?
    Tripping around the tree stumps in your summer smile

    Right, my little pooh bear, wanna take a chance?
    Wanna sip this smooth air, kick it in the sand
    I'd say I told you so but you just gonna cry
    You just wanna know those peanut butter vibes

    My, my simple sir, this ain't gonna work
    Mind my wicked words and tipsy topsy slurs
    I can't take this place, no, I can't take this place
    I just wanna go where I can get some space Writer/s: David Algernon Bayley
