Open Sesame

from Happy Accidents

They said "Pay attention,"
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

CHORUS:
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

CHORUS

(BRIDGE)
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  

CHORUS
