Like a weasel in the clover
You tilt, toss, pop, turn over
Sit down
Tremble, weave like a moth
By flame deceived
Sit down

Like a weasel in the clover
You tilt, toss, pop, turn over
Sit down
Tremble, weave like a moth
By flame deceived
Sit down

Spill with the words caught
Dance in your room
Slide like you're buttered up
Roll back the tomb
Sit down, sit down, sit down

When the thunder clouds sound
Ants all scatter to high ground
Sit down
Bolt scuff jilt chase circle riddle
Shake in haste
Sit down

Bolt scuff jilt chase circle riddle
And shake in haste
Sit down, sit down
When the thunder clouds sound
Ants all scatter to high ground
Sit down

Like a weasel in the clover
You tilt, toss, pop, turn over
Sit down
Tremble, weave like a moth
By flame deceived
Sit down

Spill with the words caught
Dance in your room
Slide like you're buttered up
Roll back the tomb
Sit down, sit down, sit down

When the thunder clouds sound
Ants scatter, scatter to high ground
Bolt scuff jilt chase circle riddle
Shake in haste
Sit down, sit down, sit down

Like a weasel, like a weasel
Sit down, sit down
