My Sister Grenadine - Rickety Rackety lyrics

They say your father surely was
Ruined by green lemons and cartoons

And his mother she swam
Out of her old neighborhood again

Her high-school teacher was featured
In a wild life documentary
On tv
I have seen it
With my own three eyes

His tax advisor he had heard
About a man who likes wearing blue skirts

Rickety rackety
Rickety rackety
Rickety racket
T-rex

Rickety rackety
Rickety rackety
Rickety oh wicked
T-rex

They say your uncle used to live
In a cabin on a mountain top near a cliff

One of his aunties she had gone
Long before the war and everything else was won

Her favorite cousin had a crush on a nun
Who helped teaching geography
And was fond of seeing
The whole wide world
Beyond her pond
Or a book

Well it took her quite a while
To get around the globe
She was traveling with a couple
They directed daily soaps

Rickety rackety
Rickety rackety
Rickety racket
T rex

Rickety rackety
Rickety rackety
Rickety oh wicked
T rex

My boyfriend's girlfriend always longs
For election posters and late-night copy shops

She's from that patchwork family
Of marathon runners and strangers raising bees

Some older sister was assisting
The vice president of a bank
They had made & lost a great fortune
On a black friday
But it's hard to say
How that story would end
In the end

They signed a lot of papers
With a pen from the last century
That was when they succeeded in
Flying to the moon and back
With a hacky sack kind of
Machinery

Kind of machinery
Kind of machinery

Rickety rackety
Rickety rackety
Rickety racket
T rex

Hacky sack moon and back
Hacky sack where it's at
Rickety racket
Machinery

Oh wicked prehistoric t rex
I can sense that you were a vegetarian
Now I know that we all misunderstood you
Rickety rackety
T rex
