lyrics

The people that you meet
When you walk down the street
Turn their eyes away
And hurry by on trembling feet
Confusion takes a pill
Paranoia takes a shot
As helpless as a new idea
You don’t know what you got

But no need to cry, my baby
No need to cry
’Cause pop will still be singing you
A ducky lullaby

The box is full of dope tales
Deaf old maids sing out of tune
Blind men argue what they see
Bob Hope is on the moon
Animals are news
Pigs and doves and hawks alike
For the first time in your life
You know your left from your right

But no need to cry, my baby
No need to cry
’Cause pop will still be singing you
A ducky lullaby
Here goes

Now Jesus is a hit on Top 40 radio
But if the drake chews bubblegum
Then the duck will steal the show
And the Motor City’s old clichés
Are pounding at your brain
Finders, keepers, pay to the piper
It’s driving you insane

But no need to cry, my baby
No need to cry
’Cause pop will still be singing you
A ducky lullaby

Santa Claus can’t make it
On account of the smog
His reindeer are on strike
And Rudolph got a nose job
Huck Finn was run down on Highway 66
And to make things worse
The people tell you how to get y’all’s tricks

But no need to cry, my baby
No need to cry
’Cause pop will still be singing you
A ducky lullaby
Well sing it
