You dress yourself up to look like an elf
And you walk around this place
With a sign against the rat race
And you go get wood to cover the fire
Then you reverently place it down upon yourself
So, you’d better get your hoe
And clean up your garden
Because the beetles are coming

The leaves are enough to turn you on
You know this, so you start a collection
There are greens, reds, yellows, golds and candles
But, what will happen to them
Once they’ve dropped their bomb
So, you’d better get your hoe
And clean up your garden
Because the beetles are coming

So, you go and get a big brown shopping bag
And in it you place your hair your roaches and part of your life
And you drop it from the long shoestring bridge by the ocean
An silently wave goodbye as it sails for Japan
The you turn to look one last look at The City
Then start to thumb to the world that’s, oh, so gritty
So, you’d better get your hoe
And clean up your garden
Because the beetles are coming
