about

A blues-infused rock anthem for, what else, dem fat kids and their goofy cartwheels. A fun song to remind you to lighten up and enjoy life.

lyrics

I swore on my badge I’d clean up this town
More and more each day the deal goes down

Drugs are hit and murders commit
Criminals walk and politicians sit

It makes me sick to my very core
Gamblers, drinkers, thugs, and whores

I was walking my beat when I saw down the street
A little fat kid jump right off his feet

I had never seen anything like it
It was all I really needed to know
And all it was
Was a fat kid doin’
Those fat kid cartwheels

I try and I try and I try and I try
More and more each day to know why

Those peaceful, normal, law-abiding folk
Catch disease, feel their pain, and croak

Being a doctor was the only plan
The only way to be an honest man

While I contemplated the quick and the dead
I heard a noise and I lifted my head

I had never seen anything like it
It was all I really needed to know
And all it was
Was a fat kid doin’
Those fat kid cartwheels

So, remember when you’re feeling down and out
In the middle of the earthquake, hurricane, drought

That there is one sight of pure humanity
Goofy, stupid, fluent divinity

Something so simply dumb and inane
That will set your raucous soul aflame

There is no need to figure it out
Just open up wide and laugh it out

I had never seen anything like it
It was all I really needed to know
And all it was
Was a fat kid doin
Those fat kid cartwheels

(Yeah...)
