Lyrics

Some build coffins, some drink coffee, some sing and dance
Some come from caterpillars, and some propellers, some throw a lance
Some hide their faces, have deep feelings, make big decisions
Some take pain killers, turn into vampira, watch television

It is important throughout your life to proclaim your joy

Some keep bunnies, some pump tummies, some court disaster
Some wanna be your slave, some wanna be your master
Some are big wheels, some are big whiners, some are talented
Some guard the borders, some scan the skies, some bake the bread

It is important throughout your life to proclaim your joy

Some make banners, some throw spanners, some are frozen
Some are entertainers, some lift operators and some are chosen
Some wield mallets, some weld rivets, some are sloppy
Some give you heaven, some eternal damnation, some make you happy

It is important throughout your life to proclaim your joy

Some hold the discus, some hide in discos, some are too hot to be cool
Some were born in a blast, some live in a cast, some never leave high school
Some are uncaring, live their lives staring down through telescopes
Some train monkeys, some blame flunkies, some only eat soap

It is important throughout your life to proclaim your joy

Some slam bibles, some save labels, some hate and murder
Some live in a coal mine, some packed in brine, some in a blender
Some are good at selling, some are good at spelling the word 'never'
Some are ruled by money, some are wrapped like a mummy, some live forever

It is important throughout your life to proclaim your joy
