We used to do it each weekend. Take me out to the chain saw Take me out with the oil Buy me some 2-stroke and goggles I don't care if I never get back Let me root, root, root for the pine tree If they don't win it's a shame For it's one, two, three chokes, you're outLOL!That would be a much more exciting game!Sometimes human places, create inhuman monsters.
