The Lyrics

Some people just reach too hard for Freudian symbolism that plain isn't there...
You're assumin' all my work can be
Reduced to-o "ain't been loved befo-ore"
All you've proved is you're not familiar
With who I am, it makes me so-ore
I-I hate to tell you and burst your bubbl-le
But your hea-ead's firmly up your a-arse
You're seein' sad si-igns where there are no signs
This cigar's just a plai-ain cigar

You're still tryin' to find somethin'
Symbolic, but there's nothin' the-ere
Not gonna see sli-ight signs of repression
At least not on purpose, I swea-ear
I-I wish you'd stop it, it's quite gratin'
Workin' tha-at ol' psych major ha-ard
But all your theories are simply not true
This cigar's just a plai-ain cigar

You've got a way with words so-o I can see
How you go-ot your meanin', bu-ut dude
Oh-oh, it's a coincidence, be-elieve i-in me
Guess you just wasted a re-eview
I-I neve-er said you were far fro-om clever
You just think you're right from the sta-art
Think you should go fo-or new endeavours
This cigar's just a plai-ain ciga-ar, mate

My-y drawin' of a-a flo-o-oppy penis
Doesn't mean anythin', dumba-arse
You're reachin' too much for a meanin', dude
This cigar's just a plai-ain ciga-a-a-a-a-a-a-ar, oh-oh

I mean, come one, can't a guy just draw a dick without it being a metaphor for his repressed sexuality or whatever? Maybe he was offered a lot of money to draw it, maybe it's for his anatomy class, maybe he's screwing with people who see phallic imagery everywhere.

As a seasoned parodist it would never have occurred to me to avoid any possible double entendres - I'm getting worried about you man! :-P
