The Metric System


Good work if you can get it 

Rock boy is genital suck juice mad 
His delicious apparatus would flutter and tremble after pubic worship 
He would freeze it in a jar and sell it to celebrity lesbians 

Good work if you can get it 

They wanna buy it in kilos 
They wanna buy it in grams 
You know they're down with the metric system 
And they never fuck around 
They wanna buy it in kilos 
They wanna buy it in grams 
You know they're down with the metric system 
And they're payin by the pound 

Good work if you can get it 

Rock boy is genital suck juice mad 
His delicious apparatus would flutter and tremble after pubic worship 
He would freeze it in a jar and sell it to celebrity lesbians 

Good work if you can get it 

They wanna buy it in kilos 
They wanna buy it in grams 
You know they're down with the metric system 
And they never fuck around 
They wanna buy it in kilos 
They wanna buy it in grams 
You know they're down with the metric system 
And they're payin by the pound
