Song Description

They say that truth be stranger than fiction. This is a true story. From the toothpick in the tush to the screaming bridge, this song appeals to the 4th and 5th grade mind, and the crazy side of us all.

Story Behind the Song

The story IS the song. Someone actually did put a toothpick in our waterbed and I decided to write a song about it. Life is never boring at our house, that's for sure!

It's a bit too comical and spoken word to be commercial and the melody is quite traditional, but the vocal is feisty and amusing.

    - Pete Higginson

That must be Kate!! Really fun song!! So clever and humorous!! Sounds like it went over very well with the crowd!

    - Greg Johnson
Lyrics

The strangest things happen up in Callahan at night.
The armadillos prowl and the giant skeeters bite.
But a recent strange occurrence has filled my heart with dread.
Someone put a toothpick in my waterbed. Someone put a toothpick in my waterbed.

I thought we were protected and I felt that we were safe
When we crawled beneath the covers and our bedtime prayers did say.
We cozied and we cuddled, and then quite discomforted
(Tim yelled) Yow! Someone put a toothpick in our waterbed.

Who put a toothpick? Who put a toothpick?
Who put a toothpick in my waterbed?

The point was really sharp and it stuck him in the tush.
He yanked it out in fury and gave me a little push.
"Hon, I didn't do it! I hope you haven't bled!"
Oh, who put a toothpick in my waterbed?

Who put a toothpick? Did YOU put a toothpick?
Who put a toothpick in my waterbed?

I'm baffled and confused. I can't solve the mystery.
There's someone out to get us and I KNOW it wasn't me.
Someone wants to drown us as we sleep beneath the spread!
Who put a toothpick in my waterbed?

Who put a toothpick? Who put a toothpick?
Who put a toothpick in my waterbed?

Bridge:
What if the mattress had sprung a leak?
What if the water had soaked the sheets?
Crept up our nostrils so we couldn't breathe?
What if we died in our sleep? (blood-curdling scream, pause)

This world is full of problems that I cannot figure out.
There's wars and floods and famines; there's tornadoes and a drought.
If El Nino doesn't get me, I must know before I'm dead:
Who put a toothpick in my waterbed?

Who put a toothpick? Who put a toothpick?
Who put a toothpick in my waterbed?
