Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The Squirming Coil of sunset
I keep within my reach
Tried yesterday to get away
And hitchhiked to the beach
Verse 2
I saw Satan on the beach
Trying to catch a ray
He wasn't quite the speed of light
And the squirming coil
It got away
Verse 3
The muscles flex the mother's ring
She fastens children to her king
And sends him down the crooked street
When he returns, the birth's complete
Verse 4
Jimmy holds the Tannis root
The forest's tasty nectar shoot
The sun tips off the monarch's suit
From sequined sash to shiny boot
Verse 5
"I'd like to lick the coil some day
Like Icarus, who had to pay
With melting wax and feathers brown
He tasted it on his way down"
Verse 6
Stun the puppy!
Burn the whale!
Bark a scruff and go to jail!
Forge the coin and lick the stamp!
Little Jimmy's off to camp
