There's a word for that
But I don't seem to know it
Sometimes I grow a mustache,
Just so I don't have to show it

The word for that
It's somewhere, someone chose
For that little dented skin
Between my upper chin and nose

[Chorus]
There's a word for that
What does it start with
A word for that
I'll sound so smart
If i only knew
A Word for that
Perhaps you do

"The word You're looking for is Philtrum"

There's a word for that
It may come to me soon
It dangles down my mouth
And often comes it cartoons

The word for that
It seems like such a drag
To not know
What to call that little fleshy punching bag

[Chorus]

"Do you mean euvlia"

There's a word for that
It''s on the tip of my tongue
well actually underneath it
and has been such I was young

The word for that
Although I won't quote
It likely stops my tongue
From disappearing down my throat

[Chorus: x 2]

"Are you nuts it's frenulum"
