The Crybabies (Otis)
8 Ft. Cigaret
Wobbly Organ
A boy in the shadow of the gator-bowl
Otis was a real live gator
A bottom-feeder
Sorta like a reptile in nature
He liked to scurry
Among the bushes

Out near the outskirts of town
You could see otis
Do his little dance
Sometimes he’d lay on his back in the grass
Look up at the sky
Just think about everything he’s never going to do
Oh, otis
Some talk

My daddy used to say
Momma was as ugly as a poor dog chewing a wasp
I never forgave him for that

He liked to lip-sync to Sugar Shack
It’s Raining Men by the Weather Girls
Pump Up the Jam
Shake Your Body
And everybody Wang Chung
Feel so warm inside
So content and alive
Life meant everything to him

Got some pretty girl
She’s hanging out
Watching all the sweet…
Oh, Otis
And life was so precious
So precious
