Does Not Belong



A car does not belong inside a teapot,
Hydraulic drills are not for pulling teeth,
A writer’s block is rarely made of wood –
            Sing it all day long (tra-la-la).

A mouse does not belong inside a fruitcake,
The ‘x’ that marks the spot is abstract art,
An angel’s fall is cushioned by its conscience –
            Sing it all day long (tra-la-la).

A scream does not belong inside a clock face,
Mass panic’s not a way of keeping calm,
A dentist’s chair is rarely made of teak –
            Sing it all day long (tra-la-la).

A vacuum don’t belong inside a vacuum,
A messianic cat won’t last for long,
A year is not a state of mind, you fool –
            Sing it all day long (tra-la-la).
