Ooh it's Dick's son
That keeps his cds in neat lines
And has a dad that reads every sign and says 'I always drive sixty two point five!'

This whole song is just so incredibly random! Look up all the words because they're all this hilariously strange.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"She's Gonna Break"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
She's gonna break soon.

Why They're Repetitive:
Grrr!! That song seriously gets on my nerves...when I hear it I feel like screaming 'Okay, I get your point!!'...Plus the fact that the song's lyrics are actually depressing and the way they play it is so upbeat...
