Lyrics

Who killed the eskimos
Who understood the rules of happiness?
One step up the hedonic treadmill
One slip back on the ugly snakeskin

Who raped the great banana
Growing on the tree of happiness?
One point for the dark Satanic mills
One up on the noble savage

Everything we need is here
Stop trying to succeed
One point for the dark Satanic mills
One down for the noble savage

Who owns the pop machine
The polyester seed?
Who owns the pepper mills that
Spice up the prickly cabbage?

Down by the willow tree I joined you where you fell
You said, staring at the sky, I never knew it was that high
Don't know you very well, you're just another girl
Never mind, you stupid cow, I wish you hadn't said that now

Down by the willow tree
There's nothing that could make me happier
One step up the hedonic treadmill
One slip back on the ugly snakeskin

Stop trying to succeed
Stop running round your human hamster wheel
One point for the dark Satanic mills
One up on the noble savage

Who drank the pussy milk
Who bunged the chalk in the frigid buttercup?
One step up the hedonic treadmill
One slip back on the ugly snakeskin

Just exactly how long
Do we have to wait for the trees
To chop the Nazi axes up?
And help the frigid buttercup

Weep me and I'll weep you back
The willow seemed to say
Swing with the Goodiepal
Race Pat Pat off the rocks

Down by the willow tree I joined you where you fell
You said, staring at the sky, I never knew it was that high
Don't know you very well, you're just another girl
Never mind, you stupid cow, I wish you hadn't said that now

Down by the willow tree I joined you where you fell
You said, staring at the sky, I never knew it was that high
Don't know you very well, you're just another girl
Never mind, you stupid cow, I wish you hadn't said that now

Down by the willow tree I joined you where you fell
You said, staring at the sky, I never knew it was that high
Don't know you very well, you're just another girl
Never mind, you stupid cow, I wish you hadn't said that now

Down by the willow tree I joined you where you fell
You said, staring at the sky, I never knew it was that high
Don't know you very well, you're just another girl
Never mind, you stupid cow, I wish you hadn't said that now
