Lyrics
No water in the water fountain
No side on the sidewalk
If you say, "Oh my dear!
Whatchu doing now
Nothing much to do when you're going nowhere

Woo-ha!
Woo-ha!
Gotcha
We're gonna get the water from your house (your house)

No water in the water fountain
No wood in the wood stock
And you say, "Oh my dear!
Whatchu doing now
Nothing much to do when you're going nowhere

Woo-ha!
Woo-ha!
Gotcha
We're gonna get the water from your house (your house)

Nothing feels like dying like the drying of my skin and lungs
While we just sit here while they watch us wither till we’re gone
I can't seem to feel it
I can't seem to feel it
I can't seem to feel all new all new all new the cold steel
You will ride the whip
You'll ride the crack
No use in fighting back
You'll sledge the hammer if there's no one else to take the flak
I can't seem to feel it
I can't seem to find it
Your fist clenched my neck
We're neck and neck and neck and neck and

No water in the water fountain
No phone in the phone booth
And you say, "Oh my dear!
Whatchu doing now
Jump back jump back Daddy shot a bear

Woo-ha!
Woo-ha!
Gotcha
We're gonna get the water from your house (your house)

I saved up all my pennies and I gave them to the special guy
When he had enough of them he bought himself a cherry pie
He gave me a dollar
A blood-soaked dollar
I cannot get the spot out but it's okay
It still works in the store

Greasy men come and dig my well
Life without your water is a burning hell
Serve me up with your home-grown mice
Anything make me **** nice

And the two-pound chicken taste better with friends
A two-pound chicken taste better with two
And I know where to find you

So listen to the words I say, baby
Say give me your head
I'm barely going round and round and round
Now I'm in your bed
How did I get ahead?
Whoop!
Your, your fingers through my hair
Fingers through my hair
Give me your chest
Give me oppress
I'll give a thing to caress
Wouldya wouldya wouldya listen to the words I say?
Sound like a bubble
I believe it go round and round and round okay
Taking pictures of us all day
Your fingers through my hair
Do it till you disappear
Give me your head
Give me your head

No water in the water fountain
No side on the side walk

We're gonna get the water from your house, your house
We're gonna get the water from your house, your house
We're gonna get the water from your house, your house
We're gonna get the water from your house, your house
