lyrics

I need to take a sick day to the strip mall in Pasadena
and max out my platinum on nothing I need
and buy me some face paint. call up Brad or Angelina
maybe they'd adopt me (if my blisters would bleed!)
I need to take a sick day where no one would know me
so I could pretend .... that I'm someone I'm not ... but I'd
need a new apartment so I'd call up my Angelina
explain my situation and see what she's got
ah, ah, ah, ah....

I'm fighting off a fever and I feel a little queasy
I can't lift my head cause my back hardly works...you might
think I'm maybe fakin’ but I'm really not lazy
I just feel a lot better when I don't have to hurt
so I need to take a sick day to air out my bed sheets
to clean out my closet of vagrants and thieves...and I'd
walk around naked whenever I wanted...and
and call up Angelina when everyone leaves


I'm gonna call me in sick say, “I’m really, really sick way
sicker than Elvis before Elvis died….” and if
no one believes me, well it's really not important
how many believed Elvis would take drugs and die
so I need to take a sick day to air out my bed sheets
to clean out my closet of vagrants and thieves...and I'd
walk around naked whenever I need to … and
play with Angelina till I'm back on my feet
ah, ah, ah, ah....

(more lyrics)
and sing …
oh, please … sweet Angelina
sweet Angelina … grace in the flesh …
and sing …
oh, please … sweet Angelina
please save me I'm pitifully vexed
