**** a snoot
Loop the loop
Hock the hula-hoop
But now it yo-yo`d back again
Shiver me timbers
Just jumped ship with a little faith
We could win the championship
Parachute substitute, problem is it`s sooo cute
Workless, cashless, hungry and in debt
Outta house, outta home, outta pocket

They persuade you
That they made you then betrayed you
And they blame you with the power of persuasion
The power of persuasion
The power of persuasion
The power of persuasion

You bought the troll
You bought the gonk
You took it home, and put it on a pedestal
We needed a savior
But from its behavior
Why did it have to be so extra-terrestrial?
Tax deductible. Cash corruptible
Never the less another pool swimmer
Penniless dog tooth check
Cash and carry, find a girl
Settle down and marry

They persuade you
That they made you
The proclaim
And they`ll maim you with the power of persuasion
The power of persuasion
The power of persuasion
The power of persuasion

I sold the Eskimo snow
Build the skyline outta play do
Persuading you that monochrome is dayglo

With the power of persuasion
