about

Before this song involved a manatee, the working titles were "Assume the But, And, Then" and "The Key to Happiness"

lyrics

There's a good chance that it might happen
It might not happen right now
If you keep your eyes open
Things in life work out

So you tell me that your puppy
Was bitten by mutagenic a clam
And he morphed into a monster
Who destroyed half of Brimingham
So you drove to Alabama
To rescue poor old Spot
Got pulled over on the highway
And the cops found all your pot
Now your sittin' in a jail cell
Prayin' for your pup to arrive
And break you out of prison
Before you do hard time

There's a good chance that it might happen
It might not happen right now
If you keep your eyes open
Things in life work out

So your neighbor killed your azaleas
And chopped down your favorite tree
Even after you told them,
"A substantial portion of the root structure was on my property."
And every time you have company
They file some complaint
And you're pretty sure they hit your car and
Tore off half the paint
So you're praying for a Godsend
(Oh, Lord!)
Like a terrible disease
E-coli or Ebola
Or cancerous testes
That spreads throughout their body
(Whole body!)
In less time than a week
While they're out on vacation
To Oahu, Hawaii
And they git hit by a tsunami
And it washes them away
Where they get eaten by a manatee
Who poops them out in Grizzly Bay
And the poop gets stuck to a tire
Of a dirty old dump-truck
That smears it all over the highway
Yeah, that just might be enough

Well, there's a good chance that it might happen
It might not happen right now
If you keep your eyes open
Things in life work out

Yeah, If you keep your eyes open
Things in life work out

Yeah, If you keep your eyes open
Things in life work-

You are here... sort of.

We are natives of New England and currently base our operations out of Athens, GA.

We're part of Nobody's Favorite Records and The Branch Collection: two obscure, amorphous groups of folks who collectively pool our efforts of creativity- primarily those of the musical variety. These monikers give us the appearance of added legitimacy.

We are human.
