  • I'm spasticus, I'm spasticus
    I'm spasticus autisticus
    I'm spasticus, I'm spasticus
    I'm spasticus autisticus
    I'm spasticus, I'm spasticus
    I'm spasticus autisticus

    I wibble when I piddle
    'cause my middle is a riddle

    I'm spasticus, I'm spasticus
    I'm spasticus autisticus
    I'm spasticus, I'm spasticus
    I'm spasticus autisticus
    I'm spasticus, I'm spasticus
    I'm spasticus autisticus

    I dribble when I nibble
    And I quibble when I scribble

    Hello to you out there in Normal Land
    You may not comprehend my tale or understand
    As I crawl past your window give me lucky looks
    You can be my body but you'll never read my books

    I'm spasticus, I'm spasticus
    I'm spasticus autisticus
    I'm spasticus, I'm spasticus
    I'm spasticus autisticus
    I'm spasticus, I'm spasticus
    I'm spasticus autisticus

    I'm knobbled on the cobbles
    'cause I hobble when I wobble
    Swim!

    So place your hard-earned peanuts in my tin
    And thank the Creator you're not in the state I'm in
    So long have I been languished on the shelf
    I must give all proceedings to myself

    I'm spasticus, I'm spasticus
    I'm spasticus autisticus
    I'm spasticus, I'm spasticus
    I'm spasticus autisticus
    I'm spasticus, I'm spasticus
    I'm spasticus autisticus

    54 appliances in leather and elastic
    100 000 thank yous from 27 spastics

    Spasticus, spasticus
    Spasticus autisticus
    Spasticus, spasticus
    Spasticus autisticus
    Spasticus, spasticus
    Spasticus autisticus
