Open Sesamefrom Happy Accidents
So I did, never got paid back
They said "Hit the road",
So I did, made my knuckles crack
They said "Reign it in,"
So I did, (but) I kept getting wetter
They said "Sow your oats,"
So I did, now I've got a sweater
OPEN OPEN OPEN, OPEN SESAME
OPEN OPEN OPEN, I'M GONNA SET ME FREE
They said "Watch your mouth,"
So Idid, couldn't uncross my eyes
They said "Blow your cover,"
So I did, until my hair was dry
They said "Bite your tongue,"
So I did - - it I tasted weird
They said "Rip Van Winkle,"
So I did, now he has no beard
Crack o' dawn, break o' day, strike a balance … that's what they say
To see beyond all that we see! Says a who? Says a me!
We'll cut the strings of all we know, say "Open Sesame" and go
Kick the habit, cut it out, bust a move and have no doubt
They said "Bite the dust,"
So I did, made me choke and cough
They said "get it on,"
So I did, could not get it off
They said "Wear it out,"
So I did, made my family blush
They said "Break the chain,"
So I did, now it does not flush
