Chicken Bingo

Music and Lyrics by Karla Kane


They asked us where we came from, we said San Francisco
They asked again, we said outer space
I'm telling you we're not good with risks, oh
But let us see your face, it gives us sense of place

Can we play a game maybe, chicken bingo
You can deal the cards we wont get in the way
Run around the yard with the pink flamingos
Watch the palm trees sway, we want to hear you say

Come play today
(They're in my head somewhere, they're in my head now)
Come play play play today
We've got a sandbox in our room
Landlocked burying the gloom

Why am I so cold when the sun is shining?
What am I to do in the wintertime?
Why are you so bold with your silver lining?
I feel the best when I'm between the lemon and the lime

Can we play a game maybe chicken bingo
You get the dice and I'll keep the score
Following the rules it's a tricky thing, though
I feel best when you're between the ceiling and the floor

Come play with me
(They're in my head somewhere, they're in my head now)
Stick our feet in the sea
I've got a sandbox in my mind
In my hand, blocks of every kind
