  • No water in the water fountain
    No side on the sidewalk
    If you say Old Molly Hare, whatcha doin' there?
    Nothing much to do when you're going nowhere

    Woohaw!
    Woohaw!
    Gotcha
    We're gonna get the water from your house (your house)

    No water in the water fountain
    No wood in the woodstock
    And you say old Molly Hare
    Whatcha doin' there?
    Nothing much to do when you're going nowhere

    Woohaw!
    Woohaw!
    Gotcha
    We're gonna get the water from your house (your house)

    Nothing feels like dying like the drying of my skin and lawn
    Why do we just sit here while they watch us wither til we're gone?
    I can't seem to feel it
    I can't seem to feel it
    I can't seem to feel I'll kneel
    I'll kneel I'll kneel the cold steel

    You will ride the whip
    You'll ride the crack
    No use in fighting back
    You'll sledge the hammer if there's no one else to take the flak
    I can't seem to feel it
    I can't seem to find it
    Your fist clenched my neck
    We're neck and neck and neck...

    No water in the water fountain
    No phone in the phone booth
    And you say old Molly Hare
    Whatcha doin' there
    Jump back, jump back Daddy shot a bear

    Woohaw!
    Woohaw!
    Gotcha
    We're gonna get the water from your house (your house)

    I saved up all my pennies and I gave them to this special guy
    When he had enough of them he bought himself a cherry pie
    He gave me a dollar
    A blood-soaked dollar
    I cannot get the spot out but
    It's okay it still works in the store

    Greasy man come and dig my well
    Life without your water is a burning hell
    Serve me up with your home-grown rice
    Anything make me shit nice

    Se pou zanmi zwen, se pou zanmi zwen
    And the two-pound chicken tastes better with friends
    A two-pound chicken tastes better with two
    And I know where to find YOU so
    Listen to the words I said
    Let it sink into your head
    A vertigo round-and-round-and-round
    Now I'm in your bed
    How did I get ahead?
    Whoop!
    Thread your fingers through my hair
    Fingers through my hair
    Give me a dress
    Give me a press
    I give a thing a caress
    Would-ja, would-ja, would-ja

    Listen to the words I say!
    Sound like a floral bouquet
    A lyrical round-and-roundandroundandround
    Okay
    Take a picture it'll last all day, hey
    Your fingers through my hair
    Do it 'til you disappear
    Gimme your head
    Gimme your head
    Off with his head!
    HEY HEY HEY HEY

    No water in the water fountain
    Floral bouquet
    A lyrical round-and-roundandroundandround
    No side on the sidewalk
    Take a picture it'll last all day, hey
    And you say old Molly Hare, Hare
    Nothing much to do when you're going nowhere

    Woohaw!
    Woohaw!
    Gotcha, gotcha

    We're gonna get the water from your house, your house Writer/s: Merrill Martin Garbus, Nathaniel J Brenner

  • Dan Tucker from PennsylvaniaInteresting to me that a snippet of the old folk tune / song “ Old Molly Hare” makes an appearance in this song. “Sankofa”
