lyrics

Once in a while I get down and let sounds
Take over my limbs and make me swing round,
Once in a while I sit still and just chill
I wait and meditate - I've time to kill,

Once in a while I get hot, the sweat drops
And drips from my pits, I smell like a pet shop,
Once in a while I get cold, like "What's this?
My cock is the size of a fly's proboscis!"

Once in a while I'm over the moon,
Loony grin pinned on like I'm in a cartoon,
Once in a while I'm down and I'm glum,
I frown and I grunt like a pig or stig of the dump,

Once in a while I'm not hungry at all,
I couldn't eat a pea coz my tummy's too small,
Once in a while I eat so much cake
I feel filled to the gills but I still wanna bake,

Once in a while I make a noise so soft
You might say "what was that, has an ant just coughed?"
Once in a while I shout so damn loud
You could hear me cheer from up near the clouds,

Once in a while I'm so straight laced and sober
I daren't taste my soda in case there's a trace of coca cola,
Once in a while I get so drunk I blow chunks
And it's a shame coz chunks is my dog's name,

Once in a while I can't do anything right, it's never my night,
I'm really out of luck, aw shucks,
Once in a while I really come up trumps and I'm appalled,
Coz trumps is what my other dog's called,

Once in a while,
Once in a while,
In a while,
Once in a while,

Once in a while I feel at peace, mind at ease,
Like a blue sky in July with barely a breeze,
Once in a while I'm so cluttered I'm flummoxed,
And there's a bunch of butterflies not a pie in my stomach,

Once in a while I keep a poker face,
You couldn't make me break it if you sprayed it with mace,
Once in a while I can't hold the laughs off
and I roll on the floor LOL-ing my arse off,

Once in a while I'm so inspired, though I know I'm tired
I can't get to bed because my head's on fire,
Once in a while I'm dry as a bone, out of the zone,
Like I'm trying to squeeze blood out of a stone,

Once in a while I'm paralysed by the size of it all,
I'm so small, I'm surprised I'm surving at all,
Once in a while I'm like a giant, defiant, king of the world,
Arms stretched, all my fingers unfurled.
