Garlic – Pungent Boogie Star

Boogie garlic

Turn the music up
Help me keep in step
I’m the dancing bulb
With boogie in my pulp

The world is so cruel
It’s my stench they can’t stand
I’ll show them how I rule
When my red shoes unwind

Step up they say
Up up the ladder
Move down I say
To the world underwater

Isolated, I shake
My bulbous undersides
Reject piles, awake
To your past oversights

Turn the boos into cheers
Turn heads on your toes
Turn around and deface
The naysaying crowds
