American Squirm

I made an American Squirm
and it felt so right
On screen was a musical worm
Deep, deep into the night

Yes I was living in a wonderful world
Everything was fine
Tried to mate in a horrible state
Deep, deep into the night

It goes on and on and on
It goes on and on and on
It goes on and on and on
But I thank you for the time
yes I thank you for the time
we killed good time

I made an American squirm
and it felt so right
on the screen was a comical term
deep, deep into the night

deep, deep into the night
deep, deep into the night
It goes on and on and on
It goes on and on and on
