Down In The Sewer

Down in the sewer
Picking up quite a lot of empty Coca Cola cans
And there sure are a lot of them around here

How did I get down here?
Well it's a long story
I should have stayed down home out on the farm
And kept my tootsies warm, instead of freezing them off down here

There's lots of rats down here
You can see the whites of their eyes
They got sharp teeth
Deep breath
And lots of diseases

People say you shouldn't stay down here too long
Lose your sense of light and dark, lose your sense of smell

I tell you what I'm gonna do
Gonna make love to a water rat or two
And breed a family
They'll be called the survivors

You know why?
(No!)
'Cause they're gonna survive ('vive, 'vive, 'vive ...)

I'll see you in the sewer, brother

I'll see you in the sewer
I'll see you in the sewer, the sewer, the sewer

I'll see you in the sewer
I'll see you in the sewer

I'll see you in the sewer
I'll see you in the sewer

I'll see you in the sewer
