Lyrics

Someone broke into the drug store again
Inquiries can not wait
We'll try to manage the collateral damage
Resulted in But I hope it's not too late

I don't know what he's up to
But This is what I saw
A strange clown in your bushes
Covering some package with straw

He wore a red nose
from "Arcane's" magic store
You know the one
With that Harlequin painted on the door

He wore britches
with dirty knees
And balloons that dragged around his feet
Introduced as "Stitches" to every one he meets

And by the way I didn't like
The strange look in his eyes
That polkadot getup
Wasn't much of a disguise

Because he looked spiteful and cruel and uncommonly deceptive
He was panting and wheezing
As if he had been running from a demented
deranged detective

Someone told me
He lived in a crawl space
Underneath some stairs somewhere
We're worried Mrs Travesty and
only do this Because We care

[ But someone broke into the drug store again
And Mrs Travesty we're wondering who it could be
I know it's not old Mr Tremble on the corner
and I know for certain it's not me ]

We've made a resolution
and came to the conclusion
That it's you Mrs Travesty - sad but true
I Saw Mrs Pinch at Hook's Five and Dime
and she said she thought so too
Because You look so frantic
And wear that certain
Look of panic
Along with a scent of
amphetamine perspiration

And need I mention we found out
you were. once in detention
And the Smith house was robbed
During their Aberdeen vacation

And everyone pulls their
shades when they see you coming as if you were some kind of
Pariah
Not to beleaguere the point but you WERE once in the joint
So we thought we'd better run it by ya

[ Because Someone broke into the drug store again Mrs Travesty -we're wondering who it could be I know for certain it's not old Mr Tremble on the corner and I know for certain it's not me ]

I'm afraid we've concluded it's you Mrs Travesty
It most definitely appears to be you
Because Eva Grinn is missing her gold lower retainer
And suspiciously her " uppers" too

And no one likes to see you in
the neighborhood
Trying for unlocked doors
Or hear the sound of your sneakers sneaking across their linoleum floors

I suspect you- are that someone Mrs Travesty I'm afraid I truly do
along with your strange clown friend
Mr. "Stiches" he. must be in on it too

Cuz Someone picked a lock
Someone stole some obje d' art
Someone Ran over the rodademdrums
With someone else's car
Someone forgot where they lived
Someone's got arrested
Someone's blown .25
On the breathalyzer
When they were tested

Someone's in the paper
Someone has the shakes
Someone's making a spectacle of themselves
With "Stitches" For Christsakes

[Because Someone broke into the drug store again
Mrs Travesty - we're wondering who it could be
I know it's not old
Mr Tremble who's a "coroner " and I know for certain it's not me ]

And I know for certain it's not me
And I know for certain it's not me
It's not me
It's not me
It's not me
