The Squirming Coil Lyrics

    The squirming coil of sunset
    I keep within my reach
    Tried yesterday to get away
    And hitchhiked to the beach

    I saw satan on the beach
    Trying to catch a ray
    He wasn't quite the speed of light
    And the squirming coil
    It got away....

    The muscles flex the mother's ring
    She fastens children to her king
    And sends him down the crooked street
    When he returns, the birth's complete

    Jimmy holds the tannis root
    The forest's tasty nectar shoot
    The sun tips off the monarch's suit
    From sequined sash to shiny boot

    "i'd like to lick the coil some day
    Like icarus, who had to pay
    With melting wax and feathers brown
    He tasted it on his way down"

    Stun the puppy!
    Burn the whale!
    Bark a scruff and go to jail!
    Forge the coin and lick the stamp!
    Little jimmy's off to camp
