Watch out Mary here comes Horace
He has buried his telephone
Lives on TV sleeps by sunshine
To keep the light from his naked bones

From when he was six weeks he'd hold air in his cheeks
To push the buttons of a lucky few
Now self suffocation is his recreation
He says it's safer than sniffing glue

Mr. Blue Veins

He pushed for contact but she wouldn't play
So he held his breath again to get his way
Mary said look here I met you yesterday
So take your blue face and get out of my way

Now Horace he hit back hard
He shut his mouth with clothespins, taped up his nostrils
And sprawled on her floor
Mary have in slowly and just when he passed out
Pulled off the pins and tape and gave him CPR

Mr. Blue Veins
